First, to avoid any misunderstanding that might lead to nasty comments, let me say a few things. This is in NO way intended to make light of the horrible shark attacks off the coast of North Carolina (another one reported just today); this is certainly NOT meant to endorse the video maker’s admonition about venturing into the ocean at coastal vacation spots; and this must be viewed with the caveat NOT to record yourself on a cellphone video while you’re driving. Okay, that said…
Veronica-Pooh Nash Poleate has posted a short video to her Facebook page that offers “Summer Safety Tips” and has been viewed over 2.5 million times…in just three days! Identifying herself as a School Counselor at the Hamilton County Department of Education in Tennessee, Veronica-Pooh has a gift — a real gift for making selfie videos that lots and lots of people really, really like.
And apparently, this gifted video star is a big-time meat eater (now c’mon, that’s really not a size joke) who follows the gastronomic gospel of something called the “Meat Ministry.” And, oh yes, she’s also quite a believer in the Divine Power of the Almighty who made the oceans as the “sharks’ house” and quite possibly, according to Veronica-Pooh, a domain to be avoided by mere mortals of the human variety.

With prayers for a speedy recovery of the shark-bite victims (today’s attack off Ocracoke Island marks the seventh incident on North Carolina beaches in June and July), we invite you to click on the video above and heed the words of caution from Veronica-Pooh Nash Poleate.
