Often, it's fun to jump rope. However, sometimes, jumping rope may not be as easy as you think it is. If you're {{The Klutz}}, {{The Fool}}, or maybe even the {{Butt Monkey}}, expect things to go haywire when you try to jump rope; you either get tangled up while jumping, the rope gets tied up around your feet, or the jump rope flies out of your hands and breaks a window or a vase.

Expect this trope to show up in {{Comedy}} or WesternAnimation.
