Someone’s Christmas is ruined. Shark jumps Canberra

By 24 December 2011 15

tugeranong parkway shark

Seen floating above the Tuggeranong Parkway near Lyons this morning.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

No, it’s a remote control shark.

I saw these for sale in Woden today, and thought they were simply a balloon that you blew up, tied to the roof and it flew around in circles… I guess it was only a matter of time until someone filled it with helium.

Bugger! A bloke at work had one of those – it was a very cool gadget, but the control you have over them is limited. It looks as if this one got away. :-(

On the website I saw them on it said “Indoor use only” – which if course reads as a challenge to some.

Sharks have evolved to fly.

We really are rooted now….

Hahaha!
Depressingly though, the comments under that story sound exactly like the bunch of RA posts above. Perhaps RA isn’t the exclusive source of comedy gold I thought it was?!?! ;-)
Also, someone claims it was their shark from Byron!

I’m just waiting for the first victim with a chunk taken out of his parachute to be interviewed by the media. ‘It was hiding behind the clouds. I choked it with my rip-cord.’
