Don't Eat Shark Fin Soup, Because Yao Said So

The Chinese do some great things, like raising Yao Ming and letting him be an NBA star. They also do some not-so-great things, like exterminating many of the world's sharks to make shark fin soup.

But what else would you expect from a noted shark sympathizer like Yao? Which team did he grow up playing for? The Shanghai Sharks. Clearly he's been in league with the sharks from the get-go, and this message is just one step closer to us all re-living the set of Jaws.
