The phrase go over the top originated in WWI, when it referred to troops in the trenches charging over the breastwork to attack the enemy. Nowadays we use it when something is going beyond of what is expected, normal or appropriate. From over the top of the mountain to surpassing a goal; winning in the Olympics, embellishing a surface, or watching spinning top; TAVA members explored different aspects of an often used phrase.
