I didn't mean for the fish to turn out so evil-looking in this picture. I have no doubt that the fish God sent to swallow Jonah was just an innocent sea creature going about its everyday business with no malicious intent, and Jonah probably looked like a slightly overlarge species of krill to it. However, as a human, it's very hard to quash that sense that every large, toothy monster in the ocean is out to get me.

In a similar vein, somebody should definitely put together an alternative cut of Jaws told from the shark's point of view, with all the sinister music and shark POV shots of flailing human legs removed. And get Morgan Freeman to speak the shark's lines in the voice-over. Do some focus groups afterwards and see how much the shark's image has been rehabilitated.
