From "Megalodon Lives" by Flash Rex

Megalodon Lives
"What are you doing?  You idiot!  Give me that damn thing!"  I grabbed the scoop out of Grimshaw's hand.  He looked up in surprise and pushed his glasses back up.

"What does it look like I'm doing?  I'm throwing the chum out!"

"Do you remember me telling you to?"

"What's the problem?  You said chum attracts sharks so I threw the chum in the water.  I don't want to spend the rest of my life on this boat looking for a shark so I decided to start.  I should be asking you what you've been doing while I've been working!"

"You moron!"  I pointed to the slick.  "Do you see that line in the water?  That's the chum you've been throwing out.  Do you see where it leads?"

"Over there.  So what?"

"That's Jones Beach, you jackass!  There are going to be thousands of people on that beach today and you attracted every shark in the area right to them!  That's what!"

"I didn't know!  How was I supposed to know?"

"You weren't supposed to know!  That's why I'm in charge!  From now on you do what I say!  Understand?"

"Yeah."

"Good.  Now pray nothing happens on that beach today."
