Than “he/she got out too far over their skis”?

Let’s mix it up a little....maybe “He got stuck with the short polo mallet” or “His yacht is short a bow thruster”

While we are on expressions, why do they call it "Black Friday"? I have no idea where that came from.

Ultimately in a nod to greater spirituality, they named the album Black Sunday.

Greedy capitalists wanting to ride B-Real’s jock, stole the name for their store sales.

And some can't pay to play
Trapped in what you rapping about
Tell me what happened when you lost clout
The rout you took started collapsing
No fans
No fame
No respect
No change
No women
And everyone ##### on your name


is this attributable to snow skiing or water skiing or both?

aren't you supposed to be over your skis (as opposed to under them, or off to the side of them).

So what does that expression even mean? Bad or good?

It works for both. Mebbe it’s an old expression, but

I don’t think I ever heard it before the 2010-2015 timeframe.

Maybe it is old though, because with old ski boots/bindings, you did take more of a neutral stance, but in the modern shaped ski era you’re supposed to be putting weight forward and driving your boot frontwards.

Water skis? Too far forward has always been ugly.

Oh, and I’ve heard the expression used two ways....

One usage meant they got ahead of themselves, and the other was that they got too big for their britches.

Street and see a guy with 2 weeks worth of beard, wild hair, and sweatpants and a WWF tank top lying on a stained mattress in their yard, my first thought isn’t to say “Man, looks like you got out a little far over your skis!”
