It was Sharknado VI - It's About Time (with nods to Back to the Future, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Monty Python and the Holy Grail) that debuted this past weekend.


The earlier, Sharknado IV - the Fourth Awakens, featured several -nado variants:


Sandnado,

Bouldernado,

Oilnado,

Firenado,

Hailnado,

Lavanado,

my personal favorite, the Cownado,

Lightningnado,

and finally, Nukenado.

On the productiveness of the "-nado" element, let us note that the newest "=
Sharknado" movie (the 4th? 5th?) premiered last night on the SiFi channel.
