    Cochlear is not an ear. It is a mechanical "implant and a behind-the-ear speech processor."

    Ducks lack external ears. Let's put the third ear on the duck.

    I'm not familiar with the vernacular "Jump the Duck". Please explain.

    It's actually a nod to the vernacular "Jump the Shark." That term refers to a pop-culture phenomenon that passes a certain point of quality and then proceeds to outlive its useful time span. For instance, the Cosby Show jumped the shark once Winnie and Nelson were born.
    The term refers to a Happy Days episode (I think it was Happy Days) where someone did a waterski jump over a shark.
    My adaptation, I guess, wasn't that funny.

    And I'm drawing a complete blank on "Would you rather?"s right now.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the good vibes. We brought back the same 12 teens that we left with - and in the promised no more than 2 pieces. It was a great week - our kids were great and had a rewarding time on the mission trip. The adults saw some lack of organization areas that were very dissatisfying - there is no excuse to run out of peanut butter and deli meat for the making of lunches. There was a Wally World 5 minutes away.

    FYI - Fonzie did, indeed, jump the shark in an episode of Happy Days. I think he might have even had his leather jacket on when he did it.

    Actually, I was going to call a foul on that one. The whole goal of being a PW is to not appear to be a PW...multiple consecutive posts(say more than 3) is something one shouldn't do

    Of course, I could be full of it!

    It was the Fonz who jumped the shark.

    Thanks for the explanation! "Jump the Duck" is indeed very funny, doubly funny if you visualize fonz waterski jumping over a duck.

    The phrase "jumped the shark" jumped the shark a while ago.

    Also, I'll take the tail over the duck. I'd use the tail to eat devil's food cake.

    It seems that perhaps "nuke the fridge" is the new "jump the shark."

    My baby puppy! She seems to grow every day. This morning it was raining, and she was extra happy on her walk.

    We're putting in an electric fence so she can run around in the yard. I spent last weekend with a brush cutter clearing a path for the fence.

    Throw that phrase under the bus.

    And with that discussion of language, I imagine a certain poster named throatybeard should soon appear.
