ok.. this is weird..

Some New York City subway riders were left feeling a little beachy this week – after boarding a train to find out that they were riding with a dead shark!

The three-foot long critter was tucked under a seat on the N train, which runs between Queens and Brooklyn – and terminates at Coney Island, but it's hard to tell where the fish story really got started. One subway rider instagrammed a photo of the shark and scrammed, saying that the stink was too much to bear.

Riders had some fun with the carcass, sitting it on a seat at one point, until a subway worker tossed it in the trash a couple of hours later. Good thing they didn't need the "Jaws" of life to get it out! (New York Post)
