A Key West Thought

Your intrepid reporter is in Key West, FL, for a few days of R and R - sorry for the gap in writing (blogap?).  I was thinking the other day (while wandering on the harbour front where shark fishing is heavily advertised) that ... what if I were on a lazy sailboat on the Carribean somewhere and spied a single four or five foot shark swimming lazily alongside the boat?  No other sharks anywhere around.  Being 6 foot something and about 240 lbs, let's say I jump the shark and take a bite out of its back?  Would that be called a human attack?  Would the word spread throughout sharkdom to beware of huimans? too many Margaritas perhaps?  Any shark experts out there?
