You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Cantina
“Y’all know me. Know how I earn a living. I’ll catch this bird for you, but it ain’t gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like going down the pond chasin’ bluegills and tommy cods.”
And what bad fish are we talking about here? Points to the salty sea captain in the back. It’s Jaws of course, also known, when referring to the actual mechanical reproduction of the mythic monster, as Bruce.
Usually, a fiberglass reproduction of Bruce rests in retired glory over at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum. Evidently, he’s grown tired of little Laura Jernegan soaking up all the glory. Whispers of, “That little brat, I’d silence her in one gulp,” have been heard amidst the darkened hallways of the museum. So they’re sending Bruce on a trip to enjoy some Mexican food.
No, he won’t be patrolling the waters down Acapulco way. He’s heading to Sharky’s Cantina in Edgartown, of course.
On Tuesday, Nov. 30 there will be a welcoming ceremony as Bruce settles into his temporary home. The event is a fundraiser for the museum and all during the day Sharky’s will be donating 15 percent of food sales to the museum.
But be careful out there. Remember, as the man said, “This shark, swallow you whole. Little shakin’, little tenderizin’, an’ down you go.”
