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.

A very subjective term, usually describing someone who goes against someone's way of thinking. A lame person could be someone who has poor social skills, or lacks charisma. Lame could also imply someone who is rude to other people to be controlling, or someone who follows the crowd without having their own style or unique, paridoxically, lame could also mean someone who is TOO unique and therefore removed from basic normal interactions, ie: this person may still like to play with stuffed animals at age 15 whereas everyone else his age has moved on to Xbox or Twitter. It could further be a word lame people use to take the heat off of being called lame also.
Person A: He writes so small, that's lame.
Person B: It's lame because he dosen't act exactly like YOU? You sound lame.

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!

A characteristic describing someone who is just not cool. You can catch these people posting on social media bragging about their (not so) awesome lives. Their snap stories consist of selfies with filters and events made up only for the snap. Will be seen hanging around people equally as lame, usually all on their phones.
