Shakira Attacked By Sea Lion



Shakira took to her Facebook page to tell of an attack that was made against her by a sea lion. Apparently Shakira was taking photos of the animal and it confused her Blackberry for a fish and attacked. Now, these animals might look cuddly and warm and fuzzy but they will kill you. Shakira said she was paralyzed with fear but that her brother came and saved her and all she got was a little bite mark on her hand. I guess she managed to save her phone or we would not be seeing the photos. Well, priority number one is always saving the cell phone. The other day I debated what would I hate more, losing my cell phone or losing my wallet and I quickly determined that the phone would be much more of a loss. Yes, it is true that I never have more than $5 in my wallet or bank account so really all anyone would get is an 80's velcro wallet. Red in case you are curious. Better for finding in a dark bar.

Cute does not equal safe or gentle.

Yes, but I don't sunbathe with them.

I'm sorry, but did anyone else think of Arrested Development and giggle? Needs a yellow bowtie to complete the image...

Rose said...

Lol Nope.

"I'm a monster!"

@ Nope - I totally thought the same thing! I was going to ask if it was wearing a yellow bow tie. :-)

Dear Shakira,

The sea lion didn't attack you because it thought your phone was a fish. It attacked you because you're an idiot and decided to get close to a sea lion.

PS- Love that the New York Post treated this like a real news story.

here where I live- on the coast of Central California, specifically north of Santa Barbara- there was a severe unprovoked attack to gentleman who was swimming along the coast....he was out past the wave break and was just doing the breast stroke.

People always forget how dangerous these "cute" animals are. I HATE when people talk about wanting to have wild animals as pets. At my college campus, a lot of the students fed the squirrels, then everyone was all shocked when a student got bit because they'd trained the squirrels out of their fear of humans. Dumbasses.

What Moosh said.

Ha! That's one of my favorite episodes.

I read she tried to pet one of them. I don't understand why she thought that was a good idea?
