It's Shark Week on Discovery, that magical time of year when the interwebs go nuts about something most of us don't watch or care about the rest of the year.

However, should you want to partake in the trend without actually having to watch Shark After Dark/Sharkpocalypse/VooDoo Sharks -- all real shows -- just do this instead. It's just as shark-y without cutting into your regularly scheduled programming (Hello, everything on Bravo.)

    Wear Shark Pumps

    Because your feet should absolutely look like they are trying to eat anything in your path.

    And a Shark Bite-kini

    I'd tell you to rock the Shark Pumps above with this, but you don't want to be the weirdo on the beach in stilettos. And plus, KILLER tan lines. (get it?)

    Sip on a Shark Bite Cocktail...

    There are *two different ways to make this drink, they look the same, but will taste a little different depending on which recipe you use. The first uses 3/4 oz. each of spiced rum and light rum, 1/2 oz. of blue curacao, 1 1/2 oz. sour mix all shaken over ice, garnished with three drops of grenadine. (It looks like blood in the 'water.' Morbidly delicious!)

    *The second recipe uses 3/4 oz. vodka and 3/4 oz. limon rum instead of the spiced and plain light rum.


    ...Made With Shark Fin Ice Cubes

    Put them in the shark bite drinks!

    Make Sharkcakes

    Actually, find a cool sharkcake recipe on Pinterest and have one of your artsy/good-at-everything/Martha Stewart-type friends to make them for you, because honestly, who has time for that nonsense?

    Watch Sharknado

    Because Steve Sanders from 90210 kills a shark with a chainsaw as it eats him. Seriously. That happens.
