Tara Reid displayed her startling lack of intelligence on shark mating last night on Shark After Dark. In an attempt to explain the whale shark’s existence, Tara Reid set mankind back generations. It was arguably the stupidest thing uttered in a public setting.
The video doesn’t do this justice so we’ve transcribed it for you. It’s magnificently stupid in print.
Tara Reid: “I don’t wanna like, really sound stupid on this show today so I learned a little education on sharks. I look up sharks on the internet and I see whale sharks and oh, that must mean a whale and a shark have sex. And then I think, how does a whale and a shark have sex? And then I looked up…
Host: “Was there a video of it?”
Tara Reid: “No, because there’s a thing called whale sharks. So I thought, you know (gestures with hands). And then I realize whales are mammals and sharks are animals, they have nothing to do with each other.”
Host: “Did you ever see a Tiger shark?
Tara Reid: “So, basically, the dolphins have sex with each other but the sharks don’t, so then I thought, how was this such a thing? But the difference is there’s a whale shark, the biggest shark in the ocean and he’s also scary and then you got the Great White and there’s over 400 kinds of sharks. But the whale shark is kind of interesting, it is not so mean.”
Host: “I know exactly what you’re talking about.”
And now the reactions from Ian Ziering and the host.
Now, everyone, go read a book. You’re undoubtedly dumber for having watched and read that.
