When did jumping the shark jump the shark?
The philosophical ramifications are enormous.

4. You never had a shark to jump, but you MAY have created a small rip in the fabric of spacetime.
But that's really not my problem. So if you cease
to have ever existed, don't come running to me! :)

3. I thought Arrested Development had the final perfect word on this phenomenon
When they had Henry Winkler (Barry Zuckercorn) literally jump over a shark in the second season episode, "Motherboy XXX."

5. Emerson says it best.

If the shark jumper think he jumps
Or if the shark thinks he is jumped,
They know not well the subtle ways
I keep, and pass, and turn again.
