Quick post - 'to shark'

I actually have to get something out the door today, so working hard... Here's something from my old blog...

The verb 'to shark'
OK, I was belaying someone up a climb, and the people next to me were talking. And of course, you have to listen in. This one woman was telling this other woman about this third person she knew, who liked to "shark" people. What this person does is when she's lowering someone off a climb, she makes a fin with her hand and, well, you know... stuffs it in the person's crack.

So weird, crazy, and so many possibilities for using it in other contexts!

I have officially never heard of this. One more reason to never take up climbing.

Craig, saw implies a sawing motion, which I think is more disgusting that just shoving it in...

Susan, it's just something made up by some crazy person...don't worry - I've never seen it done.

I don't think I want to do anything where some feels the need to shark me.
