Florida Surfer Is Bitten By Shark, Skips The Hospital & Goes To Bar Instead To Score Free Drinks

I learned something today.

I learned that if you ever get bitten by a shark, people will give you free alcohol. You know, as long you don’t die in the ocean…

According to the New York Post, a Jacksonville-area surfer named Frank O’Rourke was bitten by a shark as he was paddling out to catch a wave. The shark bit down on his right elbow and thrashed about, knocking him off the board.

“Shark comes out of the water and grabs onto my arm, right by my elbow. Kinda tugs a little bit and thrashes… I guess it tasted me and was like, ‘Nope,’” said the hyper-chill surfer.

Bloodied and full of shark puncture holes, Frank didn’t go to the hospital, no, like any good surfer, he went to the bar.

“He immediately went to a bar ’cause he was like, ‘I got bit by a shark,’ and people were like, ‘I’ll buy you drinks.’ So he went and hung out at the pier,” said his friend, RJ Berger.

Ultimate surfer move right there. Shark almost bites your arm off and the first thing you do is go into a bar, announce you got attacked, show everyone the teeth marks and just wait for all the free beer and pretty girls to start circling you like… well, a pack of sharks.
