Fisherman and Shark Photo-Op

Field review by the editors.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

A statue of a grinning fisherman in a rain slicker holds his catch, an impressive sized fish. The gag is for you to stand behind him and next to your catch -- a huge shark, dead, with toothy mouth agape, dangling from a scaffold.

The shark photo op and a 60-ft. tall lighthouse are part of the enticements to dine at a seafood restaurant.
