Countdown to Shark Week: 5 Great Sharks in Art

Next week, the Discovery Channel will begin its annual Shark Week, or, as I like to call it, Non-Porn Dude Porn Week. During shark week, we're treated to nonstop "informative" documentary footage of sharks attacking seals, sharks attacking boats and sharks attacking whatever the hell else happens to be in their way.

OK, so it's kind of cool, and my television is stuck on Discovery every first week in August. I like to think that I watch it for the information, but come on. That's like saying you read Hustler for the articles.
