Jumping the Shark

"Jumping the Shark" is a phrase used to describe that a TV show has passed its peak with ridiculous plotlines. The origins of this phrase came from Happy Days, when the Fonz was wearing swim trunks and his leather jacket, jumps over a shark while water skiing.

Now after the release of the latest Indiana Jones movie, there is a new phrase, "Nuked the Fridge." This is a result of the scene when Indiana Jones finds himself at ground zero at a nuclear test site and slips into a fridge. Miraculously, Indiana Jones survives.

So, start using the phrase "Nuked the Fridge" at least once during your day today.
