Shark Half-Fortnight draws to a close: Speaking of Bait....

Shark Half Fortnight: Tragedy Strikes at the Linnaean Society Picnic

The Linneaean Society of London is a learned society dedicated to Taxonomy, the correct naming of all species.
Members of the Linnaean Society - scientific naming of all species by taxonomy -  are picnicking at the beach. The members of the Linnaean society leap to their feet yelling at a swimmer, "Look out!  Carcharodon Carcharias!"  and the swimmer shouts back, "What?" as a shark sneaks up behind him.
