A lot of people don’t like the phrase “jump the shark,” but “jump the shark” sounds fresh and meaningful when compared to the lazy cliche of “throwing someone under the bus.” This supercut — which has clips ONLY from this season of “The Celebrity Apprentice” — shows all the times that the latter phrase was used.

I appreciate Rich’s work in trying to fight the overuse of lazy, uninspired language, but I just don’t think these compilations are doing the job. That’s why I’m volunteering to be a production assistant on any and every reality show currently being made. I’ll be the P.A. in charge of stabbing people. If someone says, “I’m not here to make friends” or any variant of under-bus-throwing, I’ll be there to bury my Ka-Bar hilt-deep into their ribs. Man, I’d love to have that on my resumé. “Mr. Ufford, it says here that you were the Stabbing Liaison for a reality television show. What exactly did that entail?” “Stabbing people, mostly.”
