If you’ve seen Piranhas 3D and are still up for the beach for the long weekend, you might be out of luck.

Let’s take a quick round-up of the beach scene this Labor Day: we’ve got sharks on the West Coast, Hurricane Earl and Tropical Storm Fiona on the East Coast, and of course, the Gulf still has the oil. So where are we supposed to holiday?

“Ah, there’s always the Great Lakes,” you might be thinking. Well, think again! Flying Asian carp would put a damper on that vacation.

What does that even leave, the Gulf of Alaska? ┬áHa, we already checked; it’s freezing this time of year.
