    This is Tuff as rain

    link from Foxnews.com

    BRISBANE, Australia A mako shark attacked a fisherman on his boat deck, biting him on the leg after the man reeled it in while fishing off Australia's east coast Sunday, an official said.
    The 20-year-old deckhand was airlifted by helicopter rescue, said Brian Russell, a spokesman for the rescue service. He was flown to the Gold Coast Hospital where his condition was reported as stable before he underwent surgery.
    The man had been fishing for tuna when he reeled in a 10-foot, 90 200-pound mako shark and landed it on the deck.
    "He stepped on its tail and it whipped around and latched on to his tight calf, biting through to the bone," Russell said.
    "The shark had his leg clamped in its jaws for several minutes until other deckhands cut its head off," he added.
    Paramedic Darrin Hatchman said the victim was lucky to be alive because the bite narrowly missed major arteries.

    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    Re: This is Tuff as rain

    I'm no marine biologist, but can someone explain to me how a shark has a leg?


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Some people tell me I have a third leg, maybe that is what is being implied...
