WNBC 4 has these pictures of a shark that washed up on Rockaway Beach. The picture of the shark is weird, because we can't tell if he's smoking a cigar or if his tongue is bloated or if it's a big sock monkey. And Gothamist likes how there's a huge crowd around the shark - we imagine lots of cameraphoning! However, we hope there aren't any more sharks in the area, because we don't like shark attack stories. At this point, Gothamist thinks this might lead all stories on the news, even beating Secretary of State Condi Rice's visit for the NYC 2012 Olympics rally, because sharks trump cabinet members.
