I wonder if I'm the only one who finds this picture oddly... compelling?

^ Yep. Mr. T was involved in her Just Say No to Drugs program (and others), which the event in the pic is probably from.

Has to be Christmas 1982. A friend of mine got one of those Mr. T dolls when we were in 3rd grade.

Hell the one on the hook looks to be about 8-10 ft min.
wonder how big the other is?

I'd be surprised if the one on the hook were much longer than two-and-a-half to three feet. The one in the water looks like a blue, and might be seven feet or so.

Edit:

Just found this:
http://www.stuff.co.nz/nelson-mail/n...ured-worldwide

The picture appears to have been taken quite recently and went viral after being posted on Reddit.

The image, posted on the social media site Reddit, shows a small school shark on the end of a fishing line being chomped on by a much larger blue shark just as it is about to be lifted into the boat.

...

The school shark, a juvenile, was likely about 80 centimetres long, while its bigger enemy was about 2 metres.
There's also video, as it turns out.
