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 Western Animation
