Jumping the shark – Friday Fiver

Written By: Gary on November 12, 2005 One Comment
1. Have you ever been to the ocean?
Yes. The Atlantic and the Pacific. I’ve swam in them both multiple times.
2. When is the last time you wore a swimsuit?
I think the last time I had a swimsuit on was about fifteen months ago. I was swimming in the English Channel at the time. (I said in not across.

3. Do you respect people more for staying through difficult times or knowing when to call it quits?
We’ll those can easily be mutually exclusive. I think they need to stick with it for a bit before they quit. If they quit/give up they lose a little respest and a lot of sympathy…
4. Name a TV show that made a huge splash in the beginning, but has since gone downhill:
I’d have to say The West Wing. But it’s definetly started to pick back up, but it’s still not the same.
5. Have you ever eaten shark?
Yes. Shark tacos actually. I’m thinking it was at P.T. O’Malley’s when they used to be on Grand River. I could be wrong on that, it might have been a bar that popped up at the same location after P.T.’s moved to Abbott.

From the Friday Fiver.

A strange title since I think of “Jumping the shark” as when a TV show starts to go downhill. (I guess that goes with item four but most of the questions were water related.) As in when on Happy Days when they did the stunt with Fonzie jumping the shark to attract viewers it pretty much had hit it’s low point and there was no turning back.

    Gah! I was about to be very impressed there until you said ‘not across’ the English channel! ;o)
