John: I was snowboarding the other day and I hit this killer jump. When I landed I ripped my pants and my two inch dick was covered in snow!!!

Everyone else: ...Awkward...

A comment made by a third party in response to someone saying something inappropriate or embarrasing themselves in some way, thus causing an awkward silence for several seconds.

Saying "awkard" is often a remark deliberately aimed at stating the obvious to make the situation just that little bit more cringe-worthy.

When something weird or embarrassing happens, and there's that silence after it. No one really knows what to say, or choose not to say anything. Just back slowly away..
When you're making out with someone and then you realize your zipper is down. You zip it up slowly...But he notices *awkward*

Adjective; may be shortened to awk and said in quick succession to end a bad situation and to let the parties involved know you don't want to be there

1 - used to describe situations in which a person or persons are aloof, confused, or have been caused discomfort.

2 - most commonly used to describe events/persons that cause a general malaise of uncomfortableness.
1 - When all the guys realized they had made out with the same girl that night it became real awkward. It was pretty awkward when she mentioned she had slept with her boyfriend's best friend.

2 - I hate that kid he is so awkward whenever he is around people, it is like he was raised by mentally challenged cave people. I am so awkward around her because I can never tell if she knows I slept with her best friend.
