We all can’t be as crafty as Ian Ziering.

Not only has the former 90210 star landed at the helm of a career-catapulting franchise like SyFy’s Sharknado, but his character in the tongue-in-cheek thriller, Fin Shepard, comes up with the most magnificent way to bring down the weather system spewing sharks in the sequel, Sharknado: The Second One, which aired on Wednesday: He throws a tank of Freon inside of it and when a shark swallows him whole he chainsaws his way out. Pure genius.

Maymo the dog takes a much more minimalist approach when he finds a Sharknado (aka a shark balloon) floating around his living room.

First, he scopes out the scene, seemingly trying to figure out what exactly it’s going to take to fin-ish the replica of the ocean’s most feared predator.

Next thing we know, Maymo quite literally jumps the shark and the marine mammal is, well, shark fin toast.
