Tara Reid, whose low-budget Syfy thriller "Sharknado" attracted a cult following
last month, shared her rambling wisdom on whale sharks Tuesday night on the Discovery Channel's "Shark After Dark," giving plenty of fuel to Twitter users who mocked her endlessly.
Reid appeared along with her "Sharknado" co-star Ian Ziering on the nighttime show that runs at night as part of the wildly popular "Shark Week."
At one point, Reid, 37, said she had researched sharks online to prepare for her TV appearance, and then launched into an incoherent ramble.

"So I look up sharks on the Internet and I see whale sharks. And I'm like it must mean a whale and a shark had sex. And then I think, well how does a whale and shark have sex? ... Because whales are mammals, and sharks are animals. They have nothing to do with each other.
"So basically, the dolphins have sex with each other, but the sharks don't," she said. "So I thought, then how is it such a thing? But the difference is that a whale shark is the biggest shark in the ocean. He's also scary, and then you have the great white, who's also scary. There are over 400 kinds of sharks but the whale shark is kind of interesting because he’s so mean — he’s like a killer."
Reid's clever explanation of a whale shark quickly became fodder for Twitter users.
