Sharks are not friends and they are not food, contrary to what Finding Nemo may tell you.
Oh wait – the line is actually “fish are friends, not food”! Actually, they are both friends and food because dammit, I love sushi.
Anyway, sharks aren’t friends and aren’t food either, and that’s proving to be the case in Orange County, California. A couple people were out paddle boarding when all of the sudden, the police showed up because SHARKS ALSO SHOWED UP.
Police in California warn paddleboarders to exit the water in a "calm manner" as they are "next to approximately 15 great white sharks." pic.twitter.com/f04k0zHpvC

I once got caught in a riptide and had no idea what to do. So if I was on a paddle board and there were 15 great white sharks near me, I would’ve just called it a life.
Luckily, I don’t have to because I was not one of those paddle boarders.
Also, the replies to this tweet from ABC News were fantastic.
