Shark Week approaches as Alba jumps the same

Jessica Alba wants to save the sharks as Shark Week approaches on Discovery.Jessica Alba could be facing vandalism and tagging charges for gluing several "shark conservation posters" all over Oklahoma City in an organized stunt.

Alba apologized for her participation in the incident after she was busted online. She's in Oklahoma City shooting her new movie and somehow got lured into this sticky "save the shark" poster campaign.

The city wide display is an obvious move for shark preservationists, as millions of the large fish are slaughtered every year by heavy hunting off the Oklahoma coast. Also, the classic film Jaws was set near Tulsa.

While there was no official statement or evidence that the incident was somehow connected to the 22nd incarnation of Shark Week, it can't be a coincidence that the annual Discovery Channel event is rapidly swimming toward TVs next month. Since the week-long fin fest features titles like Shark Hunters, it's no wonder fish huggers might be concerned.

Oklahoma City police are still determining if Alba should be concerned about facing criminal prosecution for plastering the posters and allowing photos catching her in the act to show up all over the Internet.

Of course, Oklahoma has a coast. It's called the Red River coast and on the other side from hell is Heaven (Texas)

That's crazy talk. Jaws took place on the fictional Amity Island, which is supposed to be somewhere off the coast of New England, just like the location where it was filmed in real life - Martha's Vineyard, MA.
