Live by the catchphrase, die by the catchphrase.  Here are 13 examples of hilarious creations ruined by overexposure.  That’s what she said!

Wayne and Garth

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM WAYNE AND GARTH WERE UNDEREXPOSED. NOT! CUBS Bears CHICAGO Nineteen SNL appearances, two movies, and UberEats commercials made us feel like we needed to escape Wayne's World. No way? Way. If we hear we're not worthy one more time, we're going to hurl.

NBC

Borat

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM BORAT DRIVE US CRAZY. HIGH FIVE! When Borat exploded into theaters in 2006, it was pretty mind-blowing. Unfortunately, we spent the next two years listening to unfunny coworkers repeating My name-a Borat. I like sex. It's nice. Now our idea of sexytime is when people aren't imitating Kazakhstan's favorite son.

20th Century Fox

Michael Scott

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM MICHAEL SCOTT IS ONLY IMITATING WAYNE'S WORLD When Michael snickers That's what she said! it's a commentary on his lame inability to make jokes that aren't from overexposed SNL skits. Think about that the next time you're tempted to do the same.

NBCUniversal

The entire 'More Cowbell' sketch

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM MORE COWBELL RUINED BLUE OYSTER CULT Blue Oyster Cult can't play Don't Fear the Reaper anymore. Christopher Walken can't walk down the street without people screaming at him. We can't save them, but at least don't be That Guy who has to scream More Cowbell! at random music concerts.

Austin Powers

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM AUSTIN POWERS NO LONGER MAKES US HORNY, BABY When your Uncle Pat shows up for Halloween dressed as your favorite comedy character, it's a good bet it's no longer your favorite comedy character. Bad British accents aren't very shagadelic, baby. Throw us a frickin' bone and give it a rest.

New Line Cinema

Steve Urkel

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM STEVE URKEL IS BETTER SEEN, NOT HEARD When you spill coffee all over the new couch, it's tempting to spout a high-pitched Did I do that? Trust us, Urkel, you're just making a bad situation worse.

Warner Bros. Television

The Cheerleaders

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM THE CHEERLEADERS DESTROYED OUR SPARTAN PRIDE SS TEAM 1993 S S ARA ARTAN High school losers Craig and Ariana were pretty amusing - endearing even -- the first time they showed up to share their Spartan Spirit. By appearance #17, we were ready to help the chess team kick Craig's ass.

NBC

The Soup Nazi

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM THE SOUP NAZI WOULDN'T APPRECIATE YOUR HOMAGE No soup for you! is an overused bit of comedy business so best to stay away. While you're at it, no need to trot out tired Seinfeld cliches like serenity now, yada yada yada, and master of my domain. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Columbia Pictures Television

Ron Burgundy

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM RON BURGUNDY IS KIND OF A BIG DEAL. PEOPLE KNOW HIM. FUNNE NE TEAM S NEWS NE TEAM EL So let's just leave the catchphrases to to trained professionals like Will Ferrell. Please refrain from any utterings of Milk was a bad choice, whale's vagina or Go eff yourself, San Diego.

Dreamworks

Sheldon

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM SHELDON WOULD BE SUPER-ANNOYING IN REAL LIFE That's why shouting Bazinga everytime you finish a meaningless task is not endearing you to friends in adjoining cubicles. You can still be a nerd - just come up with your own geeky catchphrases.

Warner Bros. Television

David S. Pumpkins

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM DAVID S. PUMPKINS RUINED HALLOWEEN Your local Halloween superstore loves them some David S. Pumpkins-one cheap blazer is all it takes to outfit Neighborhood Dad for a funny night out with the kids. Any questions? Yeah, when are you going to take that stupid thing off?

NBC

Beavis and Butthead

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD IMITATIONS NEVER SCORE Your brother-in-law Derek thinks he does a hysterical imitation of Cornholio. Please inform him that he does not (although he may indeed need TP for his bunghole).

Viacom

Ace Ventura

COMEDY NERD CRACKED.COM ACE VENTURA MADE US HATE PETS. AND DETECTIVES. In every contest, says Ace, there must be a loser. Lew-hoo za-her! If that's true, can we nominate Alrighty then for the catchphrase competition?
