Friday time-waster: pretend you're a shark

Shark1On these slow summer Fridays, when we can find a nice way for you to waste your time (other than the time you’re wasting right now just by reading AdFreak), we like to pass it on. Here’s a good one: Discovery Channel's shark v-cards, to promote its annual Shark Week, on Imagine not only having a menacing man-eater speak to you via email, but also to use your childhood nickname, like this one did. The site also has games, quizzes to test shark knowledge, myth busters, and the like, none of which, we’re happy to report, will further your standing in the world.
