a funny, very ironic happening that leaves the person in question sad or hurt, but not dead.

Used as a noun to describe the state of something that has failed to accomplish its goals.

An Internet meme that is applied to any humorous or ironic item/topic. failquail.com has a lot of examples of what it means to fail.
failquail.com has an example of a bakery truck with the brand name "Bimbo" on the side of it. Clearly a marketing fail.
