The fifth installment in SYFY’s Sharknado franchise arrived last night. Sure, Global Swarming might’ve been up against some stiff competition with Game of Thrones over on HBO, but the latest shark-based weather catastrophe managed to top Thrones for a while on Twitter — and there were some doozies along the way.

Sharknado 5: Global Swarming blew the mythology of the series wide open (we’re not kidding), and featured some of the weirdest and wildest action this side of pretty much anything else on primetime television — and Twitter was there to capture it all.

Here are a smattering of our favorite reactions, from Sharknado-themed cakes, to a few zingers with just as much bite as high-flying shark (oh, and warning, the language gets a little NSFW).
