Buzzwords of 2008

I found this link at Nothing to do with Arbroath, but the original is here.

A sticky or magnetic battery-powered LED used in bunches as a form of graffiti. (Invented by Evil Mad Scientist, one of my faves.)

To ruin a movie franchise; usually attributed to the arrogance of a successful producer or director. The term was coined based on a scene in the latest Indiana Jones movie, in which the hero survives a nuclear blast by hiding in a refrigerator. The term is patterned after jump the shark, coined a few years ago to refer to anything that had peaked in popularity or quality and was now on a downward slide toward ridiculousness and irrelevancy.
