Tara Reid, fresh off a surge in popularity thanks to her starring role in the Syfy original film "Sharknado,"
took to the Discovery Channel last night as a guest on the new live Shark Week program "Shark After Dark."
As one might expect, Reid delivered some priceless commentary, giving anyone lucky enough to tune in an earful on why whale sharks (aka the largest known extant fish species) are not actually the offspring of a whale and a shark.
"Today, I was like, all right, I don't wanna, like, sound stupid when I do this show today, like ... so I learned a little education on sharks," she said. "So I look up sharks on the Internet and I see whale sharks so I’m like that must mean that a whale and a shark have sex and then it made me think how do a whale and a shark have sex?"
It all goes downhill from there and is absolutely worth watching. Someone get Tara Reid a narration gig for a nature documentary. "Sharknado" is only the beginning for her comeback.
