Saying that ‘jumped the shark’ has jumped the shark has not jumped the shark, since saying it was never innovative or funny in the first place. Besides, considering people have been saying that ‘jumped the shark’ has jumped the shark about, oh, since the website first went up, that’s just… stupid.
Seriously, I have never seen why some people seem to have such a negative reaction to the phrase ‘jumped the shark’. I kinda like it. Perhaps it’s the word ‘shark’, which is always a nice word. Sharksharksharksharkshark.
If people want to complain about overused phrases, complain about “When come back bring pie”. I hold that Weebl & Bob have contributed their small part in ruining of the Internet.
