A shark bites off a piece of your body; what does he bite off?

Asked by AlyxCaitlin (933points) March 15th, 2010

A giant shark noms on a part of your body, so now you have to live without a major part of yourself. What do you prefer he consume and why?

I’d say my left leg. I could just get artificial leg and learn to walk again. I wouldn’t want to lose an arm because that’s a big part of my life haha. You can lose something as big as your whole self but only go as small as a hand or a foot (no fingers or toes etc)

Does hair count? I’m going with a single strand of hair. Or a fingernail.

Well, he could have 4 or 5 foot of penis, that’d still leave a couple of foot to play with…. so to speak :)

@silverfly “You can lose something as big as your whole self but only go as small as a hand or foot (no fingers or toes etc)”. You can’t lose hair, sorry (It’s a shark)

@silverfly Feel the force baby!

silverfly's avatar

@AlyxCaitlin In that case… a chunk of my ass. @Cloverfield Oh I feel it. It is strong with this one. -> Funny how these messages came in the same response. :P

If he’s a fucking loan shark probably about 110% i’d imagine.

jfos's avatar

I would prefer that the shark bite off a chunk of my thigh. I feel that, with surgery and rehabilitation, I could regain my former physical status.

wtfrickinfrack's avatar

@Cloverfield nice!!!! xD

As for me…. half of each thigh. Seriously. Where is this shark?

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

The shark can have my belly fat.

njnyjobs's avatar

@ucme they start out with a finger or 2… they have to let you off to get their stuff back.

CMaz's avatar

Is that after I bit the shark?

AlyxCaitlin's avatar

@wtfrickinfrack hahah you’re swimming in the ocean!

wtfrickinfrack's avatar

@AlyxCaitlin naturally… how silly of me!

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

One of my calf muscles is already bigger than the other. The shark can even things up.

jfos's avatar

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities You know what that must mean… ;-)

This question assumes a lot. Like, that I’m physically capable of swimming into water deep enough to contain sharks with mouths large enough to bite a considerable portion of my body.

If I ever get bitten by a shark it’ll be by one of the little anklebiters that live just off the shore of Clearwater beach, and it’ll probably be because it’s stuck on my fishing line, and he attacked my little finger on his way to the deck of Pier 60.

My head. Then it would be all over and nothing to worry about anymore.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Boobs. The girls could always be reconstructed.

coogan's avatar

Me thinks the testicles. Don’t need little versions of me running around anyways.

AlyxCaitlin's avatar

@aprilsimnel LOL never thought about that; that’s a good one. The shark eating your boobs/butt/wiener are completey acceptable answers

Silhouette's avatar

@Cloverfield I like the way you think.

FutureMemory's avatar

My wee-wee since it gets used far less than any of my other appendages.

HTDC's avatar

It can take my hands. I want those cool robotic ones to scare little children with.

ucme's avatar

If I had an erection, & I can’t think of any reason why i’d have a boner with a fucking man eater bearing down on me but never mind.He’d break his teeth on that piece of meat.Serves him right for chowing down on my gentlemans vegetables.

Trillian's avatar

Here we go again. What I object to is the fact that sharks just come up to you and start chomping without any formalities whatsoever. Not even a “Hello, I’m a bit peckish, how ‘bout it?”
“Uh, actually, I do mind. Go find a nice tuna or something. Ass.” I hate sharks and I hate their attitude.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

Take my head.I need a new avatar.

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille We already did that, yesterday. Now you’re stuck. Muahahahahahaha!

CMaz's avatar

OK, I will play. My right hand.

No matter what, I need to wipe my butt.

AlyxCaitlin's avatar

@Trillian It’s okay to not answer the question at all and just dis on it…..

CyanoticWasp's avatar

@Trillian looks like you gave that damn shark a piece of your mind there.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities -!#$ :)

Ron_C's avatar

I’ll donate a toe or two but that’s it. I am using the other parts.

Trillian's avatar

@AlyxCaitlin I did answer your question. I told the shark “no”. He gets nothing. Ever since I saw that orca kill the great white I feel more inclined to argue back with any shark that wants to come and start nibbling without so much as a by your leave.
Welcome to Fluther. Read a few threads and see if every response is an answer.

Arp's avatar

That isn’t for me to choose. The shark takes what he wants. Besides, I am a vegetarian, I probably taste like broccoli anyway ^_^

AlyxCaitlin's avatar

@Trillian, thanks for welcoming me to Fluther Ms. Sass, but I’ve been here for long enough.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

I would say my nailfinger or something….

Berserker's avatar

[Butthead]It could but off my butt.[/Butthead]

richardhenry's avatar

He could have my left leg up to the knee. Then I can get one of those carbon fiber leg things.

ZEPHYRA's avatar

He could bite some ass off, more will grow back! Like a lizard dropping off its tail and it growing back on again!

Seek's avatar

@richardhenry OMFG! I was thinking Lieutenant Dan, but those are so much cooler!

Pazza's avatar

My little pinkie toe.

He wasn’t that hungry coz he just ate George Bush.

Cruiser's avatar

Take my ass…I think I would look dapper having to wear suspenders! lol!

davidbetterman's avatar

Nothing at all. When the shark attacks, I dodge the initial thrust, grab his dorsal fin and catch a ride.
Then, grabbing his eyes, I control his movements much the same as one controls a Geonemotodium arraknis (Sandworm on Dune).
I guide him to shore where I jump off his back and land graceful as a feather on the sand.

Thank you very much.

Trillian's avatar

@davidbetterman I stand on the shore and applaud, while the shark that I just killed by flipping upside down roasts over an open fire, turning on a spit. Then I hold up the cards….8.7! You’d have gotten a 10 had you done an Arabesque while jumping off.
Shark steak anyone?

davidbetterman's avatar

@Trillian I nod my approval and sit down for some shark steak. Pass the Wasabi please.

phillis's avatar

One of them bit off my pecker. I’ve had a debilitating case of penis envy ever since.
