'Jaws' author Peter Benchley dies

Ironically he was pulled off a boat by the biggest fucking shark I've ever seen...nah I'm just messing...he was mauled by a Grizzly.

Peter Benchley, best known for his novel Jaws, died Saturday at home in New Jersey, his wife said Sunday. He was 65.

Why'd she wait till Sunday to report his death? What's with the double standard?

Anyway, adios to a legend amongst shark lovers, giant squid hunters and other nasty sea creature fans. One of the first novels I ever read was Peter Benchley's 'Beast'.

Wendy Benchley said he died of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a scarring of the lungs.

Sadly caused by a tussle a few years ago between Benchley, a giant squid and a local shark hunter.
