FACEPALM. because expressing how dumb that was in words just doesn't work.

Because words are not suitable to describe how dumb that was.
Random Ass Dude: HOMOSEXUALS ARE GAY!

The action of the palm of your hand hitting your face in an "are you kidding me" sort of manor. Normally done when you ask your friend a question and they reply with something stupid or completely not of matter.
When Jessica replied to the "how many states are there?" with "wait, Cuba makes 53 right?" I facepalmed.

When something idiotic or stupid is said. Can be called by the person who made the stupid remark or whoever heard it. To face palm you can either call out "face palm" or just do it but either way you must firmly smack your forehead with your palm.

2.) Beth: I made a 69! I passed the test!!

Beth: .......UGH

3.) Jane: That boy has great hair!

When something happens that is the most disappointingly stupid thing to say or do ; Words cannot express the patheticness of anything that deserves a facepalm.
Guy 1: I made a fake facebook account to talk to my ex about me.

Guy 2: *Facepalm*
