the act of the last person who keeps clapping after everyone else has stopped.
the physical gesture of placing one’s hand across one’s face or lowering one’s face into one’s hand or hands. This gesture is often exaggerated by giving off more force and making a slapping noise when the hand and the face comes in contact. The “facepalm” is usually done to express or display frustration, disappointment, exasperation, dismay, embarrassment, shock, surprise, exhaustion, sarcasm, or incredulous disbelief.
Did anyone else do a facepalm during this craptacular scene?
OMG I cannot believe I just farted in a packed elevator – facepalm!
