1. A person who is so incredibly inept at his or her craft, but blindly and madly continues to produce, despite the pleas of many around him. Defying all odds and logic, often a Uwe will surround him or herself with incredible talent and funding.
2. A situation describing a person of that inclincation. (ie. pulling a Uwe)
Origins: Middle English, from Old English (Uwe Boll - the horrendously untalented hack German film director) See uwe- in Indo-European Roots.]
Person #2: Yeah, all her friends keep telling her to stop making the shoes because they're so ugly but somehow she gets money from it.
Person #1: Wow, she's totally pulling a Uwe.
By the way, pronounciation is Ooh-Vuh
"No, you're not! Watch this!" says Jake as he smashes Uwe's head in.
"Now I am the last man alive!" says Jake!
BUt BAM Uwe is not really dead and dismembers Jake, eating him in little (pronounced with a British accent)) pieces.
"Miss Beautiful, you still remain! We shall be little critters together for ever, and it will be cute, yes?"
And is was so. So it goes.
That new guy just tripped up on a chicken bone twice, what an uwe.
He just walked and put his head in my soup, what a uwe.
