Quandary Resolution 3079
jump the shark, peely-wally, calenture, nervure
One of my high school buddies, Ralph Z., thought he would impress and win over the homecoming queen, Samantha G., if he only reenacted the Fonz's 'jump the shark' waterskiing performance, but on the appointed day, he was seized by fear, he turned peely-wally and he succumbed to such an acute calenture that his knees collapsed at the fateful moment, propelling him straight into the predator's jaws, a tragedy which made Samantha laugh so hard that she popped more than one nervure.
