    How Many Times Can Charlie Sheen Jump the Shark?

    Charlie Sheen, Natalie Kenly GSI Media

    It's not a question of if. It's not a question of when. It's a question of how. 

    How can the Charlie Sheen saga jump the shark so many times!? And in just one week!? 

    Here's how:

    Shark-Jumping Moment No. 1: The Webcast premiere.

    Per its own proprietor, Sheen's Korner was "treasonous." Per your own judgment, it was a reminder that winning wasn't always pretty. Or entertaining. Or, frankly, even winning.

    Shark-Jumping Moment No. 2: The firing.

    He fought the law, and the law won. End of story. (Oh, if only…)

    Shark-Jumping Moment No. 3: The Jon Cryer insult.

    This is where Sheen lost at least some of his own Two and a Half Men fans—not to mention most Brat Pack loyalists. 

    Shark-Jumping Moment No. 4: The Funny or Die video.

    When you revert to self-parody, you're as relevant as the second or third sequel in a big-screen franchise. When you revert to self-parody that isn't especially clever, you're Mark Zuckerberg on Saturday Night Live (minus his billions and his brain cells).

    Shark-Jumping Moment No. 5: The lawsuit.

    Remember when it was all fun and goddesses and tiger blood? Now it's all attorneys and causes of action and cash. Boring.

    Shark-Jumping Moment No. 6: The "Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour.

    Arguably, the defining jump-the-shark manuever will come when the tickets don't sell, the seats don't fill and/or the star doesn't show.

    Shark-Jumping Moment No. 7: The disaster in Japan

    The real world called. It said, "Remember me? Now shut off that Webcast!"

    VIDEO: Maybe The Soup knows what the guy's problem is?
