Just another day in Australia...
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Sutta Nipata 3.725

Is it a metaphor for the current Test series ? ;)

Quite possibly, Peter.
But I don't follow cricket, rugby, badminton, synchronized swimming or any other spectator sport.
My one concern is that the young gentleman is lifting the machine above his shoulders and is not wearing the appropriate safety gear which makes him non-compliant with his chainsaw ticket.
Worksafe Australia will need to be contacted...
As for the shark, I think a large dose of alka seltzer is in order.

Hmmm....the sharks teeth look as though they might benefit from a visit to a dental hygienist.
