The latest buzzword used amongst mindless teenagers as a way of showing just so utterly irreverent their predictable sense of humour is. Particularly dominant among English teens and University students, the word "random" or the act of being "random" is a desperate plea for others to recognise how totally against the grain of the norm you are and that you're really crazy and out there. Trouble is, being "random" is predictable, boring, moronic and extremely sad indeed.

Often used by an MTVeenager.
Uni Student: "Cheese! HA HA!"
Another Uni Student: "Wow that's soooo RANDOM! Let's go and buy some trendy clothes which have meaningless and pretentious words/numbers all over to make us look random."

That random condom you have in your wallet, glove box or your room, with no idea where you got it, or how long it has been there.
Person 1: "Dude, why is there a cherry condom in here?"

Person 2: "I dunno, it's a ran-dom."

Friend #1: What? Your high-school English teacher made your class study King Lear for your Shakespeare play and learn all about old age and inheritance struggles? Hey instead, you could have been reading Romeo and Juliet and learning about teenage stuff like bleeding love, unreasonable parents, irresponsible advisors, and roving gangs of testosterone-fuelled hotheads!
Friend #2: Well yeah, her choice was pretty random...we told her so, but she wouldn't listen to us! It was a long two months....
