Noun. A frustrating yet amusing moment when a person of a younger and hipper generation tries to explain to an adult what "emo" is. Usually occurs when two teenagers are having a conversation and a nosy parent is listening in.
Teenager A: HAHAHA you're so emo.
Teenager B: What the hell? No I'm not!
Nosy Parent: What in the world is emo?
Teenager B: Uhoh, looks like we owe her an emoplation.
Teenager A: *starts explaining to the adult what Emo means*
