Something unexpected and irrelevant, but often amusing. A very over-used word now, please people, use it when something really is random. See example below for a true example of random.
Holly: Sorry to hear your hamster died Bob...
Bob: Window cleaners for British rail should watch out for flying man-eating deckchairs today, swimming in from the south along with the flea-ridden coathangers. The calf needs the blinds shut due to his purple parrot problem, and the pet washing line needs a slap round the face for dropping the flying monkey on the "queen of the night" tulips. The muffin man is responsible for the sudden outburst of rain yesterday as he forgot to pay the rent on his blue strawberries. I'm sorry, did you say you wanted a biscuit?
Holly: Random! Custard cream please.

This word is now a noun as well as an adjective. It refers to a person whom you meet 'randomly', or whose identity or relation to anybody else is unknown. It is often used to refer to people you meet at parties or on nights out, whose names you don't know or forget, and whom you never see again.

You can also say 'random guy', 'random girl' etc.
"Who's that guy standing in the background of this photo with a mop on his head?"
-- "I dunno, just a random who followed us in off the street, I think. He slept in the shed."

"I didn't really know anybody there so I was just chatting to randoms all night."

A person that has no affiliation with you or your friends but beleives that they are welcome. These individuals are usually responible for awkward moments and confusion among large groups of friends where a random would be difficult to identify.

An uninvited, but harmless and not unwelcome guest at a party. Unlike a gatecrasher, who spoil parties by drinking your beer, harassing your women and hijacking the turntables, a random blends in well enough to remain undetected until the following day after leaving.
'Who was that bloke in the long white robe with dreads?'
'I dunno, just some random I think...'

Used in conversation after someone says something that is a non sequitur or has no bearing on the conversation at hand, and is thus completely random.

"Frantone's was first built in 1967 by Antoine Frantonne. He changed the name in 1982 and started serving pizza."
