look up any word, like hipster:
 
1.
The only value in filthy, disgusting, violent, or obscene materials in the media (television shows, movies, online forums, etc.). Ironically, these things have become so common that even the shock value is gone, leaving their existence pointless and the masses desensitised (or disgusted).

2.
The amount of money you are willing to bet your friend to attach electrified alligator clamps to his or her nipples.
Dude, hold my beer. Whats your shock value for me?
