2: What sharks do
3: What you do when you eat
4: What I might tell you: ___ me

Down:
1: Insects
2: Optical Organs
3: Ridicule

Solution A flooble-minded alternative to Iain's answer | Comment 2 of 7 |

This "solution" doesn't match the puzzle parameters....but it's Monday.....

Across:

1. What dogs do = GOTO, the ubiquitous command used by  doggy programmers. 

2. What sharks do = ARAB. Many sharks patrol the Arabian Sea.

3. What you do when you eat = OBOE. I like to play the oboe as I dine.

4. What I might tell you = LSSY ME !! (Irish slang for "Listen to me!!")

Down:

1. GAOL (prison). Insects often infest prisons, so much so that bedbugs and cockroaches seem synonymous with the prison experience (so I've heard). 

2. ORBS are optical organs.

3. TAOS (Plural of Tao). A comedian (Jerry Seinfeld?) once wrote a book titled "The Tao Of Comedy". So even ridicule can be done according to the Tao, that is, flowing in harmony with the essential nature of the person or thing being ridiculed.

4. OBEY (a way for a married person to comfort his/her spouse).
