Tara Reid was the highlight of Tuesday night's Shark Week programming, topping off Discovery's Shark After Dark talk show with one of the dumbest rambles about "whale sharks" you'll ever hear. In fact, it's so mind-numbingly dumb, it just may be one of the dumbest things you'll ever hear, period. At no point in her rambling, incoherent reponse was she even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award her no points, and may God have mercy on her soul.
Here's how it went down: Reid was on the show thanks to obvious Sharknado synergy. On the topic of all things sharks, Reid talks about looking up a definition for whale sharks while preparing for the show. Things go off the rails immediately after, with Reid babbling borderline incoherently:
"Like I looked up whale shark but then I started thinking like.. how does a whale and a shark have sex?"
In a truly "ah-ha!" moment, the stuck-in-the-'90s-Barbie figured out "a whale is a mammal and a shark is an animal." If you're scratching your head because that doesn't make a lick of sense to you, you're not alone. It wasn't a high point in Reid's career.
Tara, just... Wow. What happened after Van Wilder?
