A term used to describe an Irish Gaelic football team after they have been heavily defeated by the opposition. Coined in 2009 by Dublin manager Pat Gilroy after his team were annihilated by resurgent underdogs Kerry.
Dublin didn't appear to have a Plan A, never mind B or C. The manager, Pat Gilroy, would later maintain that his players had started the match like "startled earwigs".
