The uncomfortable feeling you get from the embarassment that the person whom is embarassing themselves should be feeling, but isnt, perhaps because of being:
a. Mentally unstable
b. Under the influence of a controlled/uncontrolled substance

c. Socially retarded
Dude, I had the worst second-hand embarassment for Dennis the other night. He was singing a Phil Collins song from Tarzan to the bartender.
