I’m tired from traveling home from DC, but I had this sweet little puzzle by Ceaco and the first two episodes of Shark Week 31.
Expedition Unknown: Megalodon
I’ll admit that I enjoy Josh Gates’s Expedition Unknown series. I found this episode to be both funny and informative, and SC and I loved all the movie references! It was a great mix of shark science and entertainment, while making no bones of the fact that Megalodon is extinct. The “can I lick science” moment was hilarious, and the explanations of the current theory behind the possible why of Megalodon’s extinction were well done.
Shark Trip: Eat. Prey. Chum
Ugh. I’m not going to mince words here. I despised this show. Rob Riggle and his friends are actors, and you cannot convince me that they knew EXACTLY what the script entailed. That being said, the writers of this particular episode need to go back for sensitivity training. Rob’s bullying and toxic masculinity for the sake of cheap laughs and Anthony Anderson’s over-the-top screaming and flailing were not funny. I watch Shark Week for sharks and shark science, not to watch actors act like jerks and spread shark fear.
I had a devil of a time trying to find this puzzle! I’d seen it in my local Walmart months ago, but hadn’t bought it at the time. When it got closer to July, I started to panic because I could no longer find it! I trolled through every Walmart I went into looking for it! Thankfully, I found it in NH while camping.
At 100 pieces, this isn’t meant to be a difficult puzzle. Normally, puzzles of this size are marketed to children, but I’ve found that they are fantastic for bad hand days.
My sister Little-Big has recently moved in with us, and she helped me assemble this puzzle.
I found this image of a Great White swimming through a set of presumably Megalodon jaws perfect to start my Shark Week!
This puzzle is part of Ceaco’s glow line, so SC pulled out the black light for this pic!
Here is the puzzle in all it’s sharky glory!
