With her strong wings, she flew down just as the little mouse tipped over the roaring waterfall. She swooped him up safely, and put him down on the bank. A man says “I keep finding custard in one ear, and jelly in the other”. The doctor says “I’m afraid you are a trifle deaf”. In case you did not, as I didn't, "get" the title, The Shark Infested Custard takes its title from what Willeford calls an "old Miami riddle": "What is sweet, bright yellow, and extremely dangerous?"
