What is Jumping the Shark?

The term jumping the shark alludes to a specific scene in a 1977 episode of the TV series Happy Days when the popular character Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli jumps over a shark while water skiing. The scene was so preposterous that many believed it to be an ill-conceived attempt at reviving the declining ratings of the flagging show. Since then, the phrase has become a colloquialism used by U.S. TV critics and fans to denote the point at which the characters or plot of a TV series veer into a ridiculous, out-of-the-ordinary storyline. Such a show is typically deemed to have passed its peak. Once a show has "jumped the shark" fans sense a noticeable decline in quality or feel the show has undergone too many changes to retain its original charm.

Grange Hill - look at the song just say no

I listened to the Grange Hill song, just say no song from the Grange Hill gang whilst recording my funny podcast Hosks Half Hour and its Grange Hill inspired episode, which can be found here

Here is the clip just focusing on the just say no song, It's funny how time makes you look back at things differently, I never realized how rubbish this song was, excluding the funky bit at the start.

Classic Tommy Cooper Jokes

Someone sent me some Tommy Cooper jokes today and they certainly made me chuckle, I would call them dad jokes but some of them are too good for that title



Two Aerials meet on a roof - fall in love - get married

The ceremony was rubbish but the Reception was Brilliant.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Man goes to the docs, with a strawberry growing out of his head.

Doc says, 'I'll give you some cream to put on it.'



--------------------------------------------------------------------


'Doc, I can't stop singing the green green grass of home.'

'That sounds like Tom Jones syndrome.'



'Is it common?'



'It's not unusual.'



-------------------------------------------------------------------



A man takes his Rottweiler to the vet.



'My dog's cross-eyed, is there anything you can do for him?'



'Well,' says the vet, 'let's have a look at him'



So he picks the dog up and examines his eyes, then checks his teeth.



Finally, he says, 'I'm going to have to put him down.'



'What? Because he's cross-eyed? '



'No, because he's really heavy'



--------------------------------------------------------------------



'Doctor, I can't pronounce my F's, T's and H's.'



'Well you can't say fairer than that then'



------------------------------------------------------------------



Two elephants walk off a cliff...... boom boom!



---------------------------------------------------------------------
So I went to the dentist.



He said 'Say Aaah.'



I said 'Why?'



He said 'My dog's died.'
---------------------------------------------------------------------



So I got home, and the phone was ringing. I picked it up, and said
'Who's speaking please?'



And a voice said 'You are.'
-------------------------------------------------------------------



So I rang up my local swimming baths.
I said 'Is that the local swimming baths?'



He said 'It depends where you're calling from.'
---------------------------------------------------------------------
So I rang up a local building firm, I said 'I want a skip outside my house.'



He said 'I'm not stopping you.'
---------------------------------------------------------------------



Apparently, 1 in 5 people in the world are Chinese. And there are 5
people in my family, so it must be one of them.



It's either my mum or my dad.
Or my older brother Colin.
Or my younger brother Ho-Cha-Chu.



But I think it's Colin.



---------------------------------------------------------------------



So I was in my car, and I was driving along, and my boss rang up, and he
said 'You've been promoted.'



And I swerved.



And then he rang up a second time and said 'You've been promoted again.'



And I swerved again.



He rang up a third time and said 'You're managing director.'



And I went into a tree.



And a policeman came up and said



'What happened to you?'
And I said 'I careered off the road.'



---------------------------------------------------------------------



Now, most dentists' chairs go up and down, don't they?
The one I was in went back and forwards.



I thought 'This is unusual'.
And the dentist said to me, 'Mr. Cooper, get out of the filing cabinet.'



--------------------------------------------------------------------
So I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me 'Can you give
me a lift?'



I said 'Sure, you look great, the world's your oyster, go for it.'
---------------------------------------------------------------------



Two cannibals eating a clown. One says to the other



'Does this taste funny to you?'



---------------------------------------------------------------------



Police arrested two kids yesterday, one was drinking battery acid, and
the other was eating fireworks.



They charged one and let the other one off.



---------------------------------------------------------------------



You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today.
They left a little note on the windscreen; it said 'Parking Fine.'



So that was nice.



---------------------------------------------------------------------



A man walked into the doctors,
The doctor said 'I haven't seen you in a long time'
The man replied, 'I know I've been ill'



---------------------------------------------------------------------



A man walked into the doctors,
he said 'I've hurt my arm in several places'



The doctor said, 'well don't go to those places'



---------------------------------------------------------------------



I had a ploughman's lunch the other day.
He wasn't very happy.



---------------------------------------------------------------------



I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I
couldn't find any.



---------------------------------------------------------------------



I bought some HP sauce the other day.
It's costing me 6p a month for the next 2 years.
---------------------------------------------------------------------



Two blondes walk into a building..........you'd think at least one
of them would have seen it.



--------------------------------------------------------------------



Phone answering machine message -



'...If you want to buy marijuana.............press the hash key...'



-------------------------------------------------------------------



I went to the butchers the other day and I bet him 50 quid that he
couldn't reach the meat off the top shelf.



He said, 'No, the steaks are too high.'



---------------------------------------------------------------------



My friend drowned in a bowl of muesli.



A strong currant pulled him in.



---------------------------------------------------------------------



A man came round in hospital after a serious accident.



He shouted, 'Doctor, doctor, I can't feel my legs!'



The doctor replied, 'I know you can't, I've cut your arms off'.



---------------------------------------------------------------------



I went to a seafood disco last week and pulled a mussel.



---------------------------------------------------------------------



Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly.



They lit a fire in the craft. It sank, proving once and for all that







you can't have your kayak and heat it.



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Our ice cream man was found lying on the floor of his van covered
with hundreds and thousands.



Police say that he topped himself.
---------------------------------------------------------------------



Two fat blokes in a pub, one says to the other 'Your round.'



The other one says 'So are you, you fat slob!'



---------------------------------------------------------------------



Ireland's worst air disaster occurred early this morning when a small
two-seater Cessna plane crashed into a cemetery.



Irish search and rescue workers have recovered 1826 bodies so far and
expect that number to climb as digging continues into the night

Stand up comedy - dieting makes you put weight on!

I bet if you looked up some figures that 70 percent of the world was on a diet and the other 30 percent have probably given up because they are too fat.

Here is some stand up/observation humour on deiting and the fact people often put on weight when dieting rather than actually losing it.

Some news nuggets on what names conjure up images of huge tackles and little tackles. Amusing Hosk stories on being ill and his rubbish old car. News nuggets see an Australian MP3 telling a story about his adventure in a strip joint. Hosks has a look an article about Human Evolution in the future and how we will split into one lot will be a group of fat goblins and the others will be giant healthy bunch.

Deathstar Cafeteria

Eddie Izzard hasn't been funny for years now but I heard this sketch and it reminded me of how funny he used to be. I saw his last stand up show, sexy or something like that and it was really unfunny, apart from him saying "IN MY MIND". He should stop being in films and start doing comedy again.

I can't tell if this is new or old but either way its classic comedy from Eddie Izzard.

Think before you click on Valentine's Day

I heard on the radio today warning people to be careful about sending valentines cards because there have been 13 cases of people sueing the person who sent the card for sexual harrassment. Then I also read this below warning people about sending E Valentines cards. You can't do anything these days, below is the article from this website

I say chill out and let the love out


E-card distributors have been blasted for encouraging the irresponsible use of email systems by offering anonymous Valentine's Day messages.
Written by Ian Lynch

E-card distributors have been blasted for encouraging the irresponsible use of email systems by offering anonymous Valentine's Day messages.
The messages are a real turn off for internet security company Activis, which regards the use of attachments from unknown sources as highly dangerous to corporate networks. Both Easypostcard.com and pres.net are allowing users to send email messages anonymously.

John Cheney, managing director of Activis, said: "On Wednesday morning staff are likely to be overeager to open emails expecting to receive a message of love from an anonymous admirer. This is the perfect opportunity for viruses masquerading as Valentine's Day messages to strike."

"These irresponsible websites are actually encouraging people to send anonymous emails which are putting companies' networks in serious danger. Company directors must take immediate action and reiterate their email usage policy, stressing the dangers of opening email attachments from an unknown source," he explained.
"Just because it's Valentine's Day email users still need to 'think before they click'. The problem is that you can never tell what damage an attachment will do until you've opened it - and by then it's too late," he added.

Pres.net denied that they were being irresponsible. A spokeswoman told vnunet.com: "Our messages are sent within the body of an email. A user would have to go out of their way to send them as an attachment."

However, Easypostcard.com's message service could only be sent as an attachment.

You'll Get Crabs!

I read this article on here

and it talks about the favourite phrase of 2008, yes, I know its still early but we do have an early leader with "You'll get crabs!" and when someone says that to you, you really should listen

here is the article


"You'll Get Crabs!" Early Favorite Phrase Of 2008
BOSTON (CAP) - Well, the preliminary voting is done, and unlike the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, there appears to be a clear-cut favorite for most popular catch-phrase of 2008. According to exit polls conducted by the Cliche Writers Of America, "You'll get crabs!" is well on its way to cementing its place in the American lexicon.

"The phrase was first overheard by one of our members at a keg party in late 2007," said CWA President Clive Robard. "A young woman offered the warning to a friend of hers as she snuck into the bedroom with a young man.

"By the time the party concluded some hours later, the catch phrase had been uttered literally hundreds of times, covering every conceivable topic from someone picking their nose to someone who ate a cheese curl that fell on the floor," added Robard.
While there's no easy way to put a dollar value on catch phrases, the CWA does plan to register the sentence with the U.S. Patent Office on behalf of the woman who first spoke the words, Boston University sophomore Alexa Hartman. That way if Budweiser does go through with its plans to build an ad campaign around the phrase, the 20-year-old woman will be justly compensated.

"Budweiser, Kotex, Fox News - whoever it is, we just want to make sure she gets paid," said Robard.

Robard said the great thing about the new phrase is that it is versatile enough to be used both in serious situations as well as times when someone couldn't possibly contract the sexually transmitted disease. Unlike the early favorite of 2007, "No, that's my foot!" which lost out to eventual winner, "Don't tase me, bro!" Robard feels this year's phrase will have a long shelf life.

"I think we benefited a lot from the Hollywood writers' strike," said Robard. "Where we usually get favorite phrases from professionals paid to write them, this year we got one from a college coed jealous that her friend was about to get some.
"Unintentional, off the cuff, and pure gold," said Robard. "It's what catch phrases are all about."

Who invented karaoke

I was wondering who invented karaoke the other day, so I had a look about and ended up on Wikipedia. It of course had to be a Japanese guy

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daisuke_Inoue


Who Invented the Karaoke Machine - Karaoke My Wayward Son


According to Wikipedia, "Karaoke" is derived from the Japanese words "kara" which is short for karano, meaning "empty," and "oke" which is short for okesutora, which means "orchestra."

The words combined literally mean "empty orchestra" which implies the function of a karaoke machine, music minus one (to borrow a phrase from jazz practice nomenclature)--musical accompaniment without the singer.

In 1999, TIME Magazine named Daisuke Inoue, the inventor of the karaoke machine, to its list of "The Most Influential Asians of the Century."

Karaoke, whether you love it or hate it, is a multi-billion dollar industy. So, Mr. Inoue made a mega-fortune, right?

Uh, no. Unfortunately, Inoue failed to patent his device and made virtually no money from its subsequent world-wide popularity. By his own admission, the inventor of one of the most popular forms of entertainment in history (much to the chagrin of performing musicians!) was never good on the follow-thru of his ideas. He told TIME, "After I make something, I always become the worst at it. I'm good at nurturing and training others, but my students always end up surpassing me and making more than I do."

In the case of the Karaoke Machine...A LOT MORE.

Inoue's invention grew out of his and his bandmates frequent live accompaniment of "middle-aged businessmen who wanted to sing traditional country [in clubs]."

"One client, the president of a small steel company, grew especially devoted to Inoue's slow, follow-along style, which showed off the executive's out-of-time warblings to perfection. When he asked Inoue to play for him on an overnight trip to a hot springs resort, the drummer--unable to leave his job--obliged by providing him with a tape of his accompaniment...and karaoke...was born."

Joke - A Short Love Story

A Short Love Story

A man and a woman who had never met before, and were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a Trans-continental train.

Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly..... He in the upper bunk and she in the lower.

At 1:00 AM, the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying, "Ma'am, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you mind reaching into the closet to get me another blanket? I'm awfully cold."

I have a better idea," she replied with a twinkle in her eye. "Just for tonight, let's pretend that we're married."

His eyebrows went up and he smiled, "That's a great idea!"

"Good," she replied. "Get your own f *cking blanket."

After a moment of silence, he farted.

hot picture of Rihanna

Here is some pictures of the Rihanna who shot to fame with the Umbrella song. I am not really sure why because although the song is okay it's not 10 weeks at number one good but then are any songs which stay at the number 1 for weeks and weeks that good. The Wet Wet Wet song (Love is all around) wasn't really that good, The Bryan Adams Robin hood song wasn't that good.
