Top Definition
Usually refered to as someone who has made a complete and utter failed attempt to find humor in something completly irrelivant or in no way humorus to begin with inside the internet in a despriate attempt to be popular.
An E-fail can be multiple things and include but are not limited to:

Trying to make up something utterly stupid to post on the internet to impress a bunch of people who don't really don't care to begin with.

A more direct example would be kids with no lives trying to duplicate the 'numa numa dance' to become an e-celebrity.
