Cartoonist Branson Reese got a lot of internet love for his latest piece entitled "The Person Who Discovered Sharks."

His amusing scribbling depicts a swimmer entering the sea only to discover that "smooth lions are eating me."

The funniest thing about it though wasn't the cartoon itself, but Reese's responses to the many, many people who decided to call him out for inaccurately describing sharks as "smooth."

Here's the cartoon:

Rather than admit to his (let's face it, probably intentional) mistake, Reese remains adamant that shark skin is, in fact, smooth as he replies to the pedantic Twitter users.

We've taken a look through the thread and picked out a few of his favorite replies.
