Dun-uh. Dun-uh. Dun-uh.
If you’re a Shark Week fan, you already know what’s coming July 22 — all the sharks.
The creatures of the deep are equal parts graceful, terrifying, and otherwise jaw-some. Maybe it’s their ability to bite you right in half. Perhaps it’s their uncanny ability to clear a beach shoreline in 30 seconds or less. Yet, for some reason, people LOVE sharks.
Keep these handy for Shark Week. You’ll need the best shark puns and shark jokes
