This alternative expression for 'lol' was invented and popularised by Australian comedians Anna+Mae. It's an acronym, with the letters meaning respectively: "Laughing Almost Manically so Everyone Stares", and is generally used during IM conversations to indicate that one is laughing so much as to attract the attention of anyone in the vicinity.
As stipulated by Anna+Mae during their 2009 show "mirror", LAMES is only to be used in situations of genuine hilarity.
during an IM conversation:
A: "Hey, check out this youtube link."
A: "I know isn't it hilarious???"
L: "Yes!!! But now everyone is staring at me cause I'm at an internet cafe and just laughed really loudly :("
just plain stupid, un-original, or lifeless. barbed wire tattoos, butterflies, and tribal tattoos are lame, they say a lot about the person who gets them.
sarah got a butterfly tattoo on her lower back. that's so lame, i'd rather get a dick on mine, at least i'll be more original.
A word used to describe the Urban Dictionary Word Of The Day
I was checking out urbandictionary.com and the Word Of The Day was the completely lame and unfunny (insert 9 out of 10 words of the day). I saw many more deserving words during editing but none of them ever get on the homepage. They must be too risque. Urban Dictionary must be run by a bunch of sell-outs!
1. Adjective describing someone who is Not Funny. This person usually thinks he is funny though, volunteering his jokes and creating an awkward "Why oh why did you feel you had to volunteer this?" atmosphere in the group. This person would be considered lame.
2. Onew Condition
Person A: *picks up object* "What is this?"
Person B: *picks up identical object* "It's this!"
Person A: ...
Person B: *cracks up but slows to a stop at lack of response*
Person A: ...Lame.
2. "Whatever he does, it's Onew Condition~"
people who are of no good status.
Dey some lames, u sholdn't hang wit dem
noun or adjective used to describe someone or something which is not cool.
Raymond is such a lame.
OMG that's really lame.
Members of society that just dont get it. Lames will never understand why their car was stolen or understand the importance of properly rolling up.
These lames today remind me of Al Bundy, always trying to wife a fat bitch and sell women's shoes the rest of their miserable lives.
A characteristic exhibited by persons who are boring, unadventerous, and prone to censoring the expresions of others.
Wow, those UrbanDictionary.com editors sure are lame, they wouldn't even post my awesome definition of uga!
