I think this kid is awesome and stupid at the same time. This 19 year old down in Florida was on vacation with his family when they spotted a slow-moving, 30-foot, 50,000-pound whale shark in the Gulf of Mexico.

I'm sure there are some animal lovers that are less than thrilled.

But, don't worry too much: Whale sharks are the ocean's largest fish and feed mostly on plankton. I wonder if this kid knew that?
