Top definition
Used to describe events or objects that are extraordinary in some way. Derived from the film The Silence of the Lambs, in which the line, "It puts the lotion in the basket, or it gets the hose again" is uttered to a woman in an extraordinarily bad situation. Connotation is often but not necessarily negative, and always implied.
"What do you mean your wife is cheating on you? That puts the lotion in the basket."

"Man, did you see how fast that car can go? That sucker really puts the lotion in the basket!"

"I spit in Brenda's coffee. That'll put the lotion in her basket."
