Originated from an entry on www.fmylife.com where a person said "My girlfriend was having a really bad day, so I said 'I'm sure you will get over it soon.' To which she responded 'My cousin got murdered today.' Fml."
A sure fire way to make your lame stories exciting.

Carson: "Yes! Like I said, I was walking along the street and I noticed my shoe was untied "and then my cousin got murdered..."
Tim: "Holy shit! Tell me more!?"
