Save our endangered sharks = feed them a heavy local tool! - Wanna help us build the next Japanese tourist-ready artificial superbank & international theme park / terminal building campaign. Please help by donating used cars, surfboards, cameras, loose cash, & etc. by feeding the endangered Gr8 white sharks another heavy local! Remember it's the heavier, the better coz that's the next best thing to a nice, plump seal-snack!! Then simply turn in everything left in the heavy local's surf-mobile car to charity for these worthwhile causes!!!
