Description

A British comedian, drunk on a gallon of wine, takes a one-pound bet to jump, completely naked, into an aquarium filled with sharks and stingrays, causing one of them to die of stress.An American man goes on such an astonishing bender he believes his girlfriend's claim that they got married while under the influence and only becomes suspicious when she is unable to produce a marriage certificate during the following seven years.

Russian troops get so wasted that it seems like a good idea to make a little extra cash by selling off their tank … to Chechen rebels.

The true stories in The Man Who Scared a Shark to Death, taken from news reports around the world, serve as both cautionary tales (don't agree to "help out"with a stranger's robbery, even if he seems like a really nice guy) and comforting perspective (at least you've never woken up in a trash compactor). However cringe-making your own most embarrassing drunken moment might be, at least you're not the man who caught his privates in a mousetrap—twice.
