It’s Shark Week – Here’s A Cat, In A Shark Costume, Riding A Roomba.

It’s Shark Week, and even the cats are celebrating! Max-Arthur, the cat dressed in a shark costume who rode a Roomba chasing after a duckling, is back! This time he is taking his steed around the kitchen floor. You’d think after thousands of cat videos we’d start getting immune to the silly-adorable charms of our felines. Yet here we are, still guffawing at a shark-cat on a Roomba.

How does this never get old? Only the internet knows.

Things We Saw Today: You Can Buy Matt Smith’s Car on eBay

Today In Ridiculous Drinking: Velociraptor vs. Shark Whisky

I’m not a whiskey drinker but if I were, this is the kind I would drink. Says Ben of of the creation, “Now, for [distillery] Aultmore, I searched high and low, asked all and sundry for interesting stories, facts or legends surrounding the distillery and turned up precisely nothing. So you’ve got this. A Velociraptor fighting a shark.” Apparently the design is part of a series of limited edition whiskies with comic book style label art. As for the artist he said, “She’s a comic book artist based in Glasgow.” If anyone knows her name, let us know, she deserves a high-five. Edit: Success! The artist is Emily Chappell. Her work can be found here.

Penny Palfrey Cuts Her Swim in Shark-Infested Waters Short, Is Still Pretty Amazing For Trying

Penny Palfrey, a 49-year-old endurance swimmer, had set out to complete a record-breaking 107-mile swim from Cuba to the Florida Keys. But what set this feat apart from your typical 107-mile swim is that this one was taking place in shark-infested waters. And Palfrey was going to accomplish this without the protection of a shark cage. Around midnight, she cut her swim short with about 26 miles to go, but seriously, can we really call this woman a slouch? Really? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
