Fishing the web, you never know what you will catch

Here are a couple of items that got my attention in the news. The first is a "Man caught fishing for womens panties". This one really got me laughing. I guess you would call that panty poaching.

The second one is from Blogfish, a fish, ocean, conservation blog that I follow. Fishing protest not for the squeamish is about a shark fishing protest.
For the original story:
"Alice Newstead took the drastic action in protest at the practice of finning – where sharks are impaled on hooks, before their fins are sliced off to harvest meat for shark fin soup. The sharks are then thrown back into the ocean still alive. "
I feel that she got her point across. Mainly because the news wire picked it up as well as the blog world. She has drawn attention to an issue and got the public involved.
What do you think? Did it work or just a side show?
Panty on and hanging from a hook.
Cheers

I can't even look at that Xstreem Pain pic without squirming....ICK!

Hubby has a habit of letting hooks escape from time to time and I always fear I'm going to get one in my foot!

Ugh- that is just too freaky. The expression on her face is so out of synch with the hooks piercing her flesh that it makes me queasy.

Oh mY! Well she got my attention! WOW...I have been under a rock I think. I didn't know this practice going on. How very sad for all of us! As much as I would never want to meet a shark face to face. I know that they need to grace our beautiful waters!
Have missed you!
Hugs!

FW: Some people will do anything for their 15 minutes of fame. I wouldn't even pierce an ear much less a back. the only piercing I've done is by accident with a fish hook, but not in the nose.
