look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
A metaphorical variation on the Cleveland Steamer. It occurs when someone expects something to work, only to see it fail at a critical moment, leaving them feeling like someone has just shit on their face.
Person A: "I'd stay way from Michael right now. He installed Windows 7 last week, and just got a Microsoft steamer when he tried to print out his term paper."

Person B: "Idiot. What did he expect?"
