1.
To make a sacrifice for the good of others. Originally a military term for when a junior officer would deliberately fall to cover a grenade - the explosion from which would kill a far greater number of his side if he didn't. In particular, it would be when a junior officer would make this sacrifice for a senior one - to protect the commanding officer for the benefit (supposedly) of the army.

Its meaning has been expanded to cover things like taking the blame for a team-fuckup (eg. at work) or humpin a dawg so (as said above) your mates can get into the pretty ones.
