person2: Dude, you're screwed like Steve Irwin in a tank of stingrays.

A phrase used in reference to actions or comments that are intended to be humorous but touch on timely subjects that are still too sensitive for most people to be ready to laugh about.

A phrase said after making a sarcastic or sadistic joke regarding a morbid event. Such as Dave Kingman booting a ground ball, the Steve Bartman interference of the foul ball at the Cubs playoff game, Dave Winfield dispatching a sea gull, and any other event that hits home. Can be construed as insulting or hurtful.

Often said at celebrity roasts as a timely funny comment or metaphor after insulting one of the attendees.
The Cubs have as much chance of winning a World Series as Steve Bartman does of interferring with another foul ball at Wrigley Field. Too soon?
