OUTER BANKS—Nurse sharks have stepped up attacks here in recent weeks, only to find all the credit and attention going to the doctor sharks.

“I would say – again – that this is totally unfair, but that would only be banging my hammerhead against a wall,” said a nurse shark who had just chomped down on a man’s leg after which a doctor shark gave a press conference on how awesome he was.

At press time, another nurse shark had just mangled a family of four at Nags Head when a surgeon shark told her to make him a cup of coffee, dammit.
