    Oooooooooooooooh! Humboldts!

    Yeah, it probably is George Bush's fault. Or maybe he pland on defeating the menace of the humbolts by slaughtering great white sharks. I'd say so, given his response to the 9/11 attacks.

    "We must defeat the jumbo squids by taking out the great white sharks in order to preserve the american way of life near the beaches that could be hideouts for squid sympathizers and offshore funding for squid munitions, and also 'cause we got some real neat new ships we have to use so I can get more funding from the taxpayers of this great nation, united under god ! "
    Or something like that.
