1.
a boring story or trivial remark to prevent an embarrassing silence

remember: the most boring shit gets exciting when it is a shame saver
"Everybody was about to go embarrassingly quiet but Tom shamesaved us with a story about him waiting for 2 hours at the doctor."

"I misapplied a shame saver last night. It turned out people just smoked too much pot."
