Geek Public Service Announcement

Shark Week begins on Sunday.

I have it on the good authority of a Shark Week-obsessed friend that this year will be extra special because "they're focusing on attacks rather than that conservation crap."

The Week kicks off with the awesome-looking "Blood in the Water."



Go ahead, jerks... pretend you don't watch and love Shark Week.

Can a CFP for Philosophy and Shark Week be far behind?

"The Shark-Week-ication of Culture"

Imipolex:

Genius, as usual.

I suppose you've seen the CFP for *30 Rock and Philosophy* that went out a few days ago. No joke.

Okay, the "Philosophy and..." books have definitely jumped the shark.

I'm holding out for "Two and a Half Men and Philosophy." Joke ... I hope.

Actually, my previous post gives me a good idea: "Happy Days and Philosophy"! Possible topic: Happy Days and happiness.

"Jumping the Shark and Philosophy"

Glaucon said...

Is the appearance of an X and Philosophy volume a plausible criterion for x's having jumped the shark?

Spiros said...

Glaucon,

Sounds about right to me.

@Spiros:
Yeah, I saw the 30Rock thing like five minutes before my comment. Just when I think it can't get any worse...

English Jerk said...

But can Shark Week jump the shark, or has it always already done so?

Spiros said...

English Jerk:

Nice! I'm fairly certain that jumping the shark has jumped the shark.

Right up there with Shark Week, is William Shatner's beat rendition of Sarah Palin's farewell speech.

CFP for *30 Rock and Philosophy*? I love this CFP for *30 Rock and Philosophy* so much I want to take it behind a middle school and get it pregnant.
