    Hawaii's cunning plan to stop shark attacks

    Do they do April 1st on a different day in Hawaii? This is on their official Facebook page apparently (well it looks like it's the official page).


    The State Of Hawaii

    We are in the process of importing 174 adult salt water crocodiles from Australia. Over the last few years we have had numerous shark attacks across the state that have resulted in injury and death, we need to do something to stop them.

    Studies in Australia have shown that over the last 40 years not one single shark attack has occurred near beaches where salt water crocodiles are present. Sharks do not like crocodiles. So by bringing these majestic animals to Hawaii's waters we will hopefully get the same results, making Hawaii beaches safer

    Salt Water Crocodiles are endemic to north east Australia who's climate is very similar to Hawaii's, we expect them to do very well here. We are bringing in multiple breeding pairs and hope that over the next few years they will breed allowing us to develope a healthy heard of crocs. The crocodiles will be protect by law just as we protect the Hawaiian Monk seals and Green Seat Turtle. They will be illegal to hunt, eat or keep.

    We want to take this opportunity to also remind people to respect our wildlife and do not try to pet or feed the Salties

    Yes. Well well it will certainly prevent swimmers being eaten by sharks. The salties will eat them before they get off the sand.

    Must be a piss take? Using one apex predator to chase away another. Brilliant.

    They've got the union Jack on their flag do dah, do dah.

    I did ask if it's April 1st, it sounds unbelievable. But if they are making it up they are playing the long game.

    Another story on their page is this one:

    He was committed to a Hawaii state hospital for nearly 3 years in a case of mistaken identity. Now he wants the record set straight, Hawaii Innocence Project says - CNN

    And this one:

    1970s surfing champion Reno Abellira on life support after attack, friends say | Honolulu Star-Advertiser

    Not striking examples of satire are they?

    That simply cannot be right.

    Had a look further down the page, and found this little gem:

    Hawaii Become First state in Nation to Allow Full Term Abortion‘s.
    Starting in January, 2022 any parent can bring their fully developed child (under the age of 18) to a family planning clinic and have them aborted.
    We understand that for many adults having a child that they must care for and nurture is a costly and inconvenient problem. This new program will allow these people to alleviate themselves of this responsibility in a fast and efficient manner.… See more

    One more:

    To help people avoid potholes, We have begun planting trees in some of the larger ones to alert drivers to their locations.
    A number of potholes across Hawaii have received "pothole plants" over the last week. These plants act as markers for large potholes that could cause significant damage to people's vehicles.
    On average it takes 173 days for a pothole to be repaired on state roads and in some counties, it's as much as 234 days. During this time these holes sit open a See more

    I've never seen a satire site using genuine stories.

    Not quite sure what to make of that.

    However, as someone pointed out, in this case it would be the Aussies getting their own back for those cane toads.
