I've got a new Hero..

...THIS GUY is the Iceman.... although, I've never heard it, I'm sure the Aussies already have a joke that starts out... "A bloke walks into the club with a shark on his leg"...

SYDNEY, Australia (AP) -- Lifeguards at a beach post north of Sydney couldn't believe their eyes when a man walked in with a small shark attached to his leg.

...and..

A senior lifeguard at the clubhouse, Michael Jones, said he couldn't believe his eyes when Tresoglavic turned up -- shark in tow.

"He basically asked the question: 'Can you help me get it off?' There's nothing in our procedure manual for that type of thing," Jones said.

The lifeguards flushed the shark's gills with fresh water, forcing it to loosen its grip on Tresoglavic's leg -- with blood oozing from 70 needle-like punctures. The shark later died.

...yeah, yeah.... it was only 2 feet long... but still, it's pretty amazing....

Hmmm I guess it's time to update the procedure manual.

I read it over at Kelley's.

I usually skim linked articles, but I must say, this one had my undivided attention.
