Flooded Union Station meme passes for a shark tank collapse in Kuwait

Torontonians can share a collective chuckle today: a Photoshopped picture of sharks swimming around a flooded Union Station is circulating the Internet under the guise of a shark tank collapse at Kuwait’s Scientific Center. Jamie King, who made the image (one of many great works of Photoshopping to surface after the wet and smelly overflow earlier this month), has now outed the story as a hoax, but not before the Twitterverse went ballistic over the Jaws-esque horror of it all. Our challenge to the online prankster who started the rumour: cook up a plausible backstory for this pic of a jovial Rob Ford cannonballing outside the doors of the station.
