Jason Kresse and a pal were dumping fish guts out of their boat into the Gulf about 4 a.m. yesterday, because apparently that's something to do.
They heard a thud, reports the Associated Press, and looked back to see that a 375-pound shark had jumped into their freaking boat.

Understatement of the Year so far: "Kresse says the crew couldn't get close to the 375-pound fish to toss it back in the water."
Eventually, no doubt very, very closely watched, the shark died.
It's currently on display in Freeport and will eventually be stuffed.
