Maybe this blog has jumped the shark
Tracie in Florida who calls herself “Rosezilla” read my post on voter registration and commented, “Okay, I’ll bite, what does ‘jumping the shark’ mean?”
Well, Rosezilla (and anyone else who may be wondering the same thing), basically it means I watch far too much television.
Rather than explaining it in my own words, however, I suggest that you check out this article from Wikipedia, which will tell you far more than you will probably ever want to know about “jumping the shark.” But you must read every word of it just to make sure you are fully informed, and by “fully informed” I mean you must also click on the “nuking the fridge” and “jumping the couch” links in the article, because only then will you be able to gather enough information to decide for yourself whether actor Tom Cruise is gay (Warning, Spoiler Ahead: he isn’t).
By “Tom Cruise” I mean Thomas Cruise Mapother IV:
And just as Pat Boone is no Yul Brynner, Tom Cruise is no Henry Winkler.
