Best Mick Fanning shark attack memes floating around

IF YOU do not know what happened between Mick Fanning and a South African shark late Sunday night you either live under a rock or just have not been connected to the internet. 

With the cell reception issues hitting the Clarence Valley over the weekend and yesterday I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume it is the latter. 

Three-time world surfing champion Mick Fanning was about to paddle out to catch a wave in the final of the J-Bay Open in Jeffreys Bay, South Africa when a shark surfaced and begun attacking the Tweed surfer. 

Fanning was thrown from his board before his leg rope was severed and he swam to the safety of a nearby rescue vessel, but not before he landed a couple of his own blows. 

Since the incident, which Fanning escaped from unscathed but a little shaky, the Internet has exploded with responses. A lot of those responses have been funny memes which we have compiled into a photo gallery for you humorous pleasure below. 

If you have seen any others you find funny, or even created your own hilarious image send them through to us at newsroom@dailyexaminer.com.au and we will update the gallery.
