Wales Great White Shark Hoax?

The most unlikely shark news this last week is from Wales-that's in the U.K.

Caught on a "camera phone" at 100 yards this image is meant to be a Great White shark breaching off the coast. Camera phone?

About as likely a shot as the Moon Landing...wait, they did land on the moon in 1969 right?

Fisherman David John saw the monster emerge 100 yards from his boat. He took the pic on his mobile — but only realised how close he could have been to a killer Great White when he examined it later.

Maneater ... beasts can grow to 20ft

David, 40, said: “At first I thought it was a seal. It wasn’t until I got home that I looked again and realised what I’d got. “You can’t mistake the shape of the head and can see an eye and the mouth. And from what I understand, Great Whites do break the water like this.

Editors Note: Yes they do. They also do not look as photoshopped as this image.

Fake as a three dollar bill, which is all the fashion in Baghdad right now. Crisp, newly minted, three dollar bills.
