look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
 
16.
Children, who for some reason, have parents that can't give them enough attention. If you are kind to them, they'll come to your home, eat all your food, fuck up your property, test your sanity then go home pouting when you finally insist. Their parents are none the wiser. These kids usually tell really bad lies.

Analagous to their malevolent movie counterparts, the modern-day Gremlin is most often found on weekends in between the hours of 1800 and 0400. When in its passive form, the Gremlin is most often a well-intentioned and meaningful contributor to society. However, when provoked (usually by means of an ex-girlfriend or obnoxious fool at the bar), the Gremlin first becomes forlorn and introspective, then mischevious, and in some cases violent.

If you encounter a fully manifested Gremlin, you are advised to stay clear (especially when the Gremlin is in a doorway). If you feel the need to intervene, it has been said a trip to Burger King can passify the creature.

The Gremlin will return to its natural state by morning, usually feeling embarassed and apologetic.

When your nipples harden and the outline can be seen through your shirt

It is rumored that this use was inspired by a picture of a girl who was experiencing this problem while wearing a shirt from the 1984 movie "Gremlins"

The use of this word has become popular because most people (or guys for that matter) don't know what it means, so you can say it to your friend without being so blunt as to say "I can see your nipples."
Dude, gremlins!

Katie! Your gremlins are showing!
