Top Definition
A state that occurs in social situations involving two or mpre people in which one individual makes an awkward comment that causes all involved to cease conversing with one another.

As the awkward bubble spreads from the source (original speaker), it leaves more silent in its wake as the general feeling of discomfort reaches more and more individuals.
Psychology teacher: So, can anybody think of what their most vivid memory is?

Student 1: When I started my first day at school!

Teacher: OK. That's a good one. Anyone else?

Stident 2: I always remember the day my dad died.

-SILENCE as the awkward bubble spreads throughout the entire classroom, engulfing all in its wake-
