    What does "Jumped the shark" mean? I heard it first on this site a few weeks ago...

    @Buidh, it originates from a Brady Bunch episode where one of the characters literally jumped a shark. After that the show lost viewers, thus when something gets old, it`s called "Jumping the Shark."

    I want the troll face one. It`s so awful, people would get annoyed by seeing it. So I`d be trolling people in real life just by wearing it.

    @panth753, I always thought it was `Happy Days` that originated the saying in the episode where `The Fonz` does literally jump over a shark while water skiing.

    I`ve always hated the rage faces. I thought they were dumb from the start.

    Actually it was a happy days episode where the Fonze jumps a shark, has become recognised as the moment when the show took a major downturn.

    not to sound too hipster, but they really should have stayed with internet nerds and not move to teenage girls. every other day someone posts a different s.hitty rage comic that is about `teen life` and a failed attempt at being funny. and most don`t even use the right faces for the situation.

    @spanerbulb is correct! I was watching when it aired: the situations was SO stupid, the acting was SO bad! I was just a kid, but I knew something was terribly wrong.
    I swear half the cast must have been stoned out of their trees too...

    @panth753, Spanerbulb is correct. It is actually from the episode of "Happy Days" where Fonzie actually jumped a shark.

    LOL, do you think "these memes" said, we need a franchise out selling us on t-shirts. So they contacted this vendor and said for a small licensing fee you can sell us. Is that how this all went down? AWing memes? LOL. Those memes went too far.

    Well, they were never funny to begin with, just like all of these "memes". I look forward to the day they die out.

    I mean seriously, when people repeat this crap, do they really think they`re being funny?

    I really can`t wait until people get bored of this crap.

    panth753 - No, they shouldn`t exist anywhere.

    If you were there when they started, and saw them used in their original home/context, you would understand the originality and creativity they represent. Unfortunately, they have spread far afield from their source, and thoroughly beaten into the ground. A shame, really....
