Urban Dictionary Definition Needed

The following exchange took place this evening on twitter:

"xo64068: I just dropped a fucking taco in my lap. Having your crotch covered in sour cream is not nearly as sexy as it sounds"

"xo64068: Recovered taco, cleaned up mess, finished eating. Tastes the same. That doesn't make me gay, does it?"

"trelvix: @xo64068 It makes one neither more nor less so. It's really all about the sauce"

"xo64068: @trelvix Unassailable point. I stuck with the commercially available, factory sauce. No unauthorized modifications were made."

"Darrenrules: @xo64068 "dropped a fucking taco" I dont know why but I can't stop laughing."

"xo64068: @Darrenrules "dropped a fucking taco" I dont know why but I can't stop laughing." Could it be because you are stoned and drunk?"

"Darrenrules: @xo64068 Im not drunk or stoned. Dope is for dopes dude."

"xo64068: @Darrenrules K. Let me go get you a D.A.R.E. bumper sticker. Remember to give the po po a big THUMBS UP to show them you're a SAFE KID! :)"

"bilevader: @xo64068 @Darrenrules I definitely think "dropped a taco in my lap" should become our new euphemism for something."

So, we have a new term..."dropped a taco in my lap". What should it mean?

C'mon all you librarians! C'mon all you hipsters! C'mon all you boozed-up young drunks.

If somebody says "I just dropped a taco in my lap"! What should that refer to?

Here is your opportunity to add to the rich, lexiconic, multi-ethnic, cultural mix that continually informs and enhances the American dialect of the English language.

Leave a comment or call 816-533-8030 and tell me what you think.

Got a lap dance from a hot latino guy. :D

"The D" said...

Its something the chicks say after leaving my house at 5 am on a Sunday morning.

Hot chick #1: "So I slept with the d last night."

Hot Chick #2: "You did? Why?"

HC#1: "I totally dropped a taco in his lap"

HC#2" Umm why?

Short def: Had sex with an awesome fella!

If you don't agree with that then at least agree that its a term that the chicks would say because they are the ones with the tacos.

Dropped a taco in my lap=made a huge, messy, costly, and potentially employment-ending and/or illegal mistake.

This useful phrase can be used in situations by both kids and adults, eg:

KIDS:
1 to 2, sitting on the curb as lights flash and sirens wail: Oh Jesus, man, wtf? You sold the shit to a cop?!!?!?!

2: I swear to God, man, he told me he worked at Taco Trolley, you know everyone working there is cool about this stuff.

1: Yeah, well, now cause you're such an asshole, we dropped the whole fucking taco in our laps. A cop. This ain't gonna be good.

ADULTS:

1 to 2 sitting in the trendy upscale House O Latte: Where's Parker?

2: Didn't you hear? He's gone. They sent him to South Korea to manage that huge merger, but when he went through customs they found 76 grams of heroin inside the battery compartment of his laptop. The SK company completely cancelled the merger and upstairs fired him before he was even out of the handcuffs.

1: Wow, that's so not like him to just drop the taco like that. He was always the go-to guy when you needed something like that done.

2: Yeah, he's slipping.

I totally like it. I'm gonna use it.

Imagine... you've just changed the course of evolution for the English language.

I gotta go with "the d" on this one. That was the first definition that came to my mind... except it didn't involve the d, or his house.

Chimpo said...

So sloppy seconds is extra sour cream? If you end up getting herpes down the line, you dropped a taco with guacamole. In the rare shaming event that you cannot perform, you should say a chicken soft taco was dropped.

Ive got to go with Satyavati devi dasi on this one. Its a term that reminds me of other like minded phrases. Screwed the Pooch, pissed in his post toasties, and shit in his nest, all come to mind.

DLC said...

As compelling as the D's definition is, I can't help but wonder if the phrase shouldn't refer to something more catastrophic than getting laid.

In other words, getting a taco dropped in your lap sounds like it should be a bad thing.

Xavier Onassis said...

Although it is difficult to imagine anything more catastrophic than The D geting laid (the phrase "screwed the pooch" does leap to mind), I tend to side with satyavati, midtown and DLC.

Some sort of catastrophic screw-up, probably with severe career limiting potential.

Yay!

May said...

Obviously "dropping a taco" should imply when a chick drops her crotch down onto a seated guy while dancing for him

Well Hell Michelle said...

The closest term in urbandictionary.com now is "dropped a sushi", which is defined as "when your house cat both shits and pisses in your bed."

Sounds bad. Very bad.
