Bear vs. Shark

From the man who brought us Cavemen vs. Astronauts and Green-Sock vs. Red-Sock, I bring you the next of life's most difficult questions.

If you put a bear and a shark in a pool that was filled with water up to the bear's waist, who would win?

The bear. Bear's hunt fish in waist deep water. The shark is a fish and it is in waist deep water.

BRR makes sense. I voted for bear as well. But I do think it depends on the bear. A polar bear would rip a shark to shreds and then turn the remains into some nice boots. A black bear? Not so much.

Depends on the shark, too. They vary in size (and deadliness) a lot more than bears.

Although, I have to give the average competition to the bear as well.

Strange, I was told that people exist who favour the shark.

Well, I never would have guessed that cats would be the runaway winner of the pet poll. Maybe I should have put bears on there as an option.

I voted shark. It has lots of teeth and a powerful jaw. Course, the bear could rip it up before it gets a chance to bite, but I still give it to the shark.

Shark swims up to bear, bear crushes shark's weak cartilagey skull with one hit. Bear is victorious.

Been reading Chris Bachelder lately?

He has a novel, aptly called Bear v. Shark: The Novel, which is a satirical tale based around the premise of a rematch between the two.

The shark won the first time.

You probably just did what most do and let your personal preference come in the way of perception.

So, my guess is an undead bear will be more difficult for the shark to beat.

A spectral bear would be most fierce.

But no one has made a joke about that, I can't use it until someone makes a joke about it.

Shark bites Bear's groin, tearing muscle and causing multiple injuries. Bear retaliates by crushing Shark's skull. Bear is subsequently unable to climb out of pool, becomes faint from loss of blood and eventually drowns.

Even if the bear escaped it would be a stalemate due to his lack of reproductive ability.
