Will "barknado" follow "sharknado" into history to become the Most 
Unnecessary Word of 2015?

It may have arisen six months ago, thus in 2014, from the ASPCA, to 
promote dog adoptions.  Still, I will propose it for 2015 since it 
must be becoming viral (1,740 Google Web hits already!) after its 
transformation by "Pooch Cafe". See 
http://www.gocomics.com/poochcafe/2015/01/14 (with adaptation of high 
and low pressure areas into high and low frequency barks).
