The Red Pen of Doom

Conventional wisdom about writing is conventionally wrong.

Diver attacks and kills great white shark, has a Foster’s

That’s right. It’s a “man bites dog” story, a reversal you just don’t expect.

This time, though, a man dives into the water to do battle with the greatest killing machine in the ocean.

The only way this could be more impressive is if the great white shark had a tag team partner, say a giant squid.

    Aussies FTW. I reckon I’d need a drink or 12 after a day fighting a shark that big as well.

    Sharks are deadly, frightening creatures. Australians, more so.

    Poor shark. I feel bad for the surfer who was just killed off our coast by a great white, but still… poor shark.
