‘Sharknado 3’ trailer features a shotgun-toting Mark Cuban as president

The Syfy network offered a sneak peek at the third installment of its aqua-weather trilogy — and it features a shotgun-blasting Mark Cuban as president.

No landmark appears to be safe in “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” — but the same basic formula remains: blood-thirsty sharks descend from the sky and smash anything in their paths.

In one clip, a shark crash-lands onto Lincoln’s lap in the Lincoln Memorial. Later, one plummets teeth-first towards NASCAR star Brad Keselowski.

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid — who saved Los Angeles and New York City from earlier fictional doom — this time reunite to save the seat of American power from the jaws of death.

Jerry Springer, David Hasselhoff and Beltway insider Ann Coulter will join a host of other celeb cameos.


Beyond Sharknado - here's a trailer for Sharkansas Women’s Prison Massacre (because fracking!)

Because it's almost time for Father's Day (or just because you want one), here's a Sharknado Action Figure.

Terrible pictures of men with cats, bonus Nazis with cats

Bonus: Nazis with cats:

More bad pictures at Sad and Useless, and here are more Nazis with cats.

Nazis with cats

Animals hanging out with soldiers isn't a new subject (as in "Cry 'Havoc!', and let slip the dogs of war!"), but seeing these Nazi soldiers with kitties is a bit disconcerting to me.

No idea what to make of this guy:
