I came across this gem while looking for a photo to use for my autobiography. I think I may have just found the cover.

We here at TCM love sharks. We like to call them “the ocean’s hitmen”. You just don’t fuck with them.
Well, a man named Craig Clasen said screw that and went hand to fin combat with a 12ft. Tiger shark. A Tiger Shark. If I’m not mistaken they rank #3 on the deadliest shark list. Its the same list as seen on Shark Week, which could quite possibly be the most badass week of the year.
Well Captain Badass aka Craig Clasen was spearfishing for tuna with his friend when the shark decided to circle them. They have been around thousands of sharks, but this time was different. The shark’s circle of death was getting tighter and tighter when it sprung at Captain Badass’ friend. So, what did the captain do? He shot it with his spear gun, amongst other things in a 2 hour battle.
In the end we had put a knife [in] its skull once I got close enough to it and used a long blade knife even after trying to drown it.
Tiger sharks are known to eat anything they want. You’ve all seen Jaws where they cut open that Tiger Shark and there is a can of corn, a license plate and a boot in its stomach. Also…
Tiger sharks have no problem eating whole sea turtles, 150lb tuna and even dolphins.
Funny, that sounds exactly like my snacks after a heavy night of boozin.
So, we salute you Captain Craig “Badass” Clasen for fighting off the #3 deadliest shark to save a friends life. Can’t say we’d do the same for each other here. What would most likely happen is watch our friend be eaten by the shark, then high five each other because nothing is cooler than watching a shark eat. Which brings to mind…expect in the upcoming weeks, the top 10 coolest ways to die.

Chuck Norris was once on Celebrity Wheel of Fortune and was the first to spin. The next 29 minutes of the show consisted of everyone standing around awkwardly, waiting for the wheel to stop.
