Everybody hates on sharks, and I, for one, am tired of it! I know that Jaws is a highly influential film that made Steven Spielberg a household name. I know that without Jaws, we might not have gotten bangers like Raiders of the Lost Ark and E.T.. I watched Jaws for the first time this summer in a movie theatre, and I had the best experience I could have possibly asked for in a first-time viewing! I’m not a Jaws hater.
I don’t want to wholly blame Spielberg for striking the fear of sharks into everybody’s hearts, but he isn’t entirely blameless. Sharks bite things because they don’t have arms. They have tiny horrible little fins that could not tell a fish from a foe. They use their mouths to understand their surroundings. If you’re in close proximity to a Great White Shark’s mouth, that sounds like a you problem. If you love sharks and hate how much everybody hates them for just trying to survive, these animal memes are right up your alley.
