It is your girl Frankeisha Franklin telling it to you as frank as possible.

Our topic for today is the video of Sharkeisha — the sucker-punching teen — who has become a viral sensation.

If you have been on the Internet any at all in the past week, chances are you may have seen the name 'Sharkeisha'. But in case you have not seen the video, in short, it is of two teen girls initially having a heated discussion when suddenly out of nowhere the shark attacked, no pun intended.

One of the teens, Sharkeisha, swung her arm all the way from the west to the east. At the force at which she swung her arm, her poor victim; Shamichael 'Shay' fell immediately to the ground.

After falling, Sharkeisha the heavyweight went over to the lightweight Shay and began kicking.

This was the point where Sharkeisha's interesting name was revealed, when her friends shout at Sharkeisha: "No. Stop! Don't kick her."

In the extended video, the physical altercation ceased, however, the verbal battle continued, where Sharkeisha revealed the real reason behind the fight. Guess what folks, as most of you thought the fight was over a boy. Turns out Shay, the lightweight engaged in sexual activities with Sharkeisha's mate.

What a way to resolve it.

Inspired by her name, persons made use of the opportunity to make comedic images of Sharkeisha with the head of a shark, as a video game character, as well as the photo of Sharkeisha from the video has been incorporated in photos with celebrities with comedic captions because of that it drew even more attention to the video.

The Urban dictionary all so made use of the opportunity by putting a meaning to her name on their website: "( Char- kee - shuh) Verb.1. To Punch the soul from another Being's body or "The act of super-sayian punching a person"; for those who do not know 'Sayians' are naturally aggressive fighters and is commonly related to the cartoon- Dragon Ball Z. How creative.

According to sources, the word 'Sharkeisha' was mentioned on Twitter alone more than 1.3 million times between November 26 and 28. Well, if you have yet to see Sharkeisha the next heavy weight champion in action I think you should carry out a police search on the internet and experience your piece of Sharkeisha.

Remember, I am just being Frank.
