The Buzz: Snark attack

Snark attack

Just when you thought it was safe to watch TV again: “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” a sequel to last summer’s campfest, airs Wednesday on the SyFy network. After chomping on Los Angeles in the first movie, the shark-storm takes a bite of the Big Apple this time around.

When it comes time to make “Sharknado 3,” The Buzz hopes the filmmakers opt for gritty realism and have the shark tornado gnaw on a mobile home park in Oklahoma.

Money’s no object: A judge in Los Angeles on Monday cleared the way for former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s record $2 billion purchase of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Earlier, doctors certified Clippers owner Donald Sterling as mentally incapacitated, to which Sterling might have noted that he’s not the guy forking over $2 billion for the Clippers.

Not lovin’ it: Officials in Russia are steamed at McDonald’s, saying the fast-food giant misrepresented the fat content of its cheeseburgers.

Listen up, Russia: Vladimir Putin’s bare torso tells you all you need you know about the nutritional value of cheeseburgers.
