    What you'll need:
    1 banana*
    1 sheet paper
    1 pair of scissors**
    blu-tac
    2 googly eyes
    Too much spare time.

    Simply cut paper into fin shapes, and secure fins and googly eyes as appropriate.

    Here's one I prepared earlier:

    *For a longer lasting shark, use a plastic banana, as shown here.
    **Always have an adult supervise while using scissors. If already an adult, consider getting a hobby/job/life.


    Next time:
    Dolphin, and hummingbird!

    Why certainly. Wait 'til you see the dolphin and hummingbird first- you might like them better.

    Blu-tack, sorry. Its a mouldable re-usable weak adhesive.

    :rofl: It sounds like a fun thing to add to a kid's lunchbox...assuming they're still young enough to find it cute rather than it getting them beat up! :rofl: :rofl:

    That's wonderful. A little, yellow shark.

    I imagine they attack en mass like pirana, not in schools but in bunches. The tropical workers who harvest them get paid extra combat pay.

    The other thing I noticed is how bendy your fingers are. The first joint, where the nail is, seems very long and that joint seems to bend back farther than most peoples'. I think those are good fingers for playing piano or guitar.

    I did. It was amazing!

    The bunches are quite easy to catch. 5 or so sharks joined at the tail are usually in disagreement about which way they'd like to go and too preoccupied with that to see you coming. It's when they detatch that things become tricky.

    Really? I never noticed them as different. They seem to be pretty good for piano, but I've had little luck with guitar (mind you, I wasn't really that persistent.)
