look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
 
1.
A story reported in the media that is barely newsworthy and only included because of the lack of any better stories to fill up the allocated space/time.

It is unclear whether it originated on the British TV show 'Drop the Dead Donkey' or if it was an industry term before that.
"We're a bit light on news today. Drop in a dead donkey or two."

"An MP has just admitted he's gay, drop the dead donkey!"
