Our love of movies is well documented over the years in this blog space.  If pressed, I feel safe in saying that “The Godfather” movies (we would consider them as one entry) would be atop our list of favorites.  That being said, “Jaws” would not be far behind.  Now, you can keep the sequels in the vault for all we care.  However, Steven Spielberg’s 1975 classic is beyond reproach.  Even now, as we get ready to enter the summer season, I’ve got a jones to watch it…soon!  Anyway, this story is delicious irony for fans of the movie like us.

Jonathon Searle and his brother had the famous cameo in “Jaws” as the two kids with the fake shark fin causing a panic on the fictional beaches of “Amity.”  Now, Searle has been named police chief of “Amity.”  Well, technically Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, but THAT is the site of the movie’s fictional town.  So, in other words, one of the kids that caused the movie’s police chief aggravation, is now the real-life police chief who could be aggravated by such kids.  Too cool.  Oh, and also a real sidenote.  There is a monster great white shark who’s been spotted in the area this summer.  No, I’m not kidding.
