TAN
TAN is an acronym for "Touched a nerve". If you ever offend or hurt someone you are said to have 'touched a nerve' with them or TAN'ed them. It derives from the use of the word by the character Michelle in an episode of BBC 2's comedy sitcom, The Royle Family after she offended her hosts. Also, to make known to someone who has offended or upset you, you would exclaim, "TAN!"

Conversely, if you wish to gain forgiveness or repent for any TAN you have caused, you simply ask by saying 'NAT'.
"You really TAN'ed me last night when you called me a fat slag."

tan
the act of messing up in a big way; failure; the name of a supposed curse spawned by gymnast Kevin Tan, whose failure was so massive it has allegedly begun to plague other athletes.

People who have Tan in their name, and therefore are doomed to fail: Kevin Tan (the originator), Liam Tancock (finished last with "Tanada")

Synonyms: Besides "epic failure", it's argued that "alicia" could be synonymous, named after the female gymnast who messed up pretty badly the next night. However, this is debatable since (1) her failure was not as epic and (2) in going with the "curse" theory, Tan's massive failure was such that it probably affected her performance, making it his fault, which is why she was briefly dubbed as "Alicia Tan" and "She-Tan".

Antonyms: Win, Success, Phelps (although this is debatable, since Michael Phelps seems to be the only athlete in the country not affected by the Tan curse. Because he appears to be keeping "epic win" to himself, it can safely be assumed that he is a selfish douche bag. It can also be assumed that he is not taking NBC to the prom.)
