By now, we know that though they may look fearsome, there are a whole lot of other things you should fear (i.e., Christmas trees) before you go bad-mouthing sharks. So keep this in mind when you watch this video of a 16-foot great white shark swiping a chum bucket from the side of a fishing boat in New Jersey.
"Was it worth it though? I'll buy you a new chum bucket!" says one of the boaters, clearly awed at the rare up-close encounter.
