It turns out the guy in Pakistan who bought that 40-foot whale shark for $18,700 didn’t have a huge sushi party in mind. His plan was to charge people to see the shark.
That’s right he set up a closed off area where he is displaying the shark and letting people get their picture taken with the dead and smelly beast. He is charging the equivalent of 22 cents each for a few minutes of viewing and picture-taking time.
Last time I checked it is probably pretty warm in Pakistan. What’s the shelf life of a dead shark? The word is that the smell is already over powering.
How many tickets does he need to sell to make back his initial investment anyway?
Now that I would pay 22 cents to see.
