“Next time you’re afraid to share ideas, remember someone once said in a meeting…”

“Next time you’re afraid to share ideas, remember someone once said in a meeting ‘Let’s make a film with a tornado full of sharks’” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. Sharknado is the television science fiction comedy disaster film that is being referred to.
 
The saying was posted both on X/Twitter (where it received over 880 likes) and Facebook (where it received over 649 shares) by Jon Acuff on July 22, 2015.
 
   
Wikipedia: Sharknado
Sharknado is a 2013 American made-for-television science fiction comedy disaster film directed by Anthony C. Ferrante. It tells about a waterspout that lifts sharks out of the ocean and deposits them in Los Angeles. It is the first installment in the Sharknado film series.
