Bucky Dennis - Son of a Bitch

Ah, makes you madder than a bag of Diamond backs in a bucket of Habenaro sauce on a hot day in July.

The killing of a pregnant world record Hammerhead was greeted in Florida this week by a triumphant media, a disinterested public, and a shocked research and shark diving community.

Oh, that's right, Florida banned sustainable shark diving in the state back in 2001 - in lieu of this, miscreants like Mr.Dennis kill breeding aged populations for the thrill. It is well known in the region this is the time of year for super large Hammerheads who come to pup.

These animals are the factories for future generations and as such should be protected, not killed and traded for a piece of paper with a date and a weigh-in number on it.

Here's the media, the image says it all.

Kudo's to Mote Marine Lab for telling "Bucky" to keep his kill, they wanted nothing to do with him or his new record shark. Perhaps "Bucky" will amount for something in his life, as the spokesman for catch and release. One can only hope - for the rotting pile of pups he now has in the back of his pickup truck, hope for the next generation of Hammerheads in the region is something long gone.

I LIKE IT! Don't let up on these swine. I've been too quiet lately myself.

I can't wait till he gets his. What you put out is what you get back. When your greedy, you lose. He just lost everything, and he doesn't even know it yet.

Perhaps hammerhead shark annihilation is not the most important problem that America faces? I’ve just scanned this article and would like to point out some grammatical and spelling errors that may hint at a problem in our educational system. First, "madder" is not a word- well actually it is, but the definition according to Merriam Webster is a Eurasian herb. That’s first grade English! "Habanero" is misspelled, which shows our lacking in the realm of foreign languages and/or spell checking. "In lieu" means "instead of" and is not an adequate substitute for "in spite of." And finally, it’s kudos, not kudo’s.
