Something to Read in the Late Afternoon If You're Bored: Slang

Apparently, someone (I'll bet it was someone snarky!) invented the term "jumping the couch" to describe someone who's gone off the deep end. It is, of course, a reference to Tom Cruise's psychotic display on Oprah. There is an extensive Wikipedia entry on this new addition to our lexicon. Check it out.

Also, an amusing catalogue of shark jumpers, which was my original intention with this post. Today's a twofer. How about that?
