To tumble-weed is to add a comment to a joke, or add comment to a conversation that kills the flow and creates an awkward feeling among the group for a short amount of time. Then the group proceeds to say "Tumble-Weed!" and is they happen to have long curly ginger hair they shake their head about.

Dusty aggregation of plant matter rolled along the ground by the desert wind. A cliche of Western movies, emphasising silence or stillness, e.g. as the hero rides into an apparently deserted frontier town. Often used in connection with the death of a conversation after one participant unwittingly reveals that they are a moron. See also tumbleweed moment.
"But then Katie made a singularly unfunny cancer joke..."

A roaming party, where the sole intention is to roam, whilst partying. Thus giving the effect of a bush party that moves, i.e. a tumbleweed.
Screw the bush party, let's tumbleweed.

Something to say during an uncomfortable silence or awkward pause in conversation. the conversation is so dead that a tumbleweed could be blowing through the people you are hanging out with like a desert.
*Silence* "Tumbleweed..." *Laughter*

Derived from the awkward silence before a cowboy shooting showdown. Now used when there's an awkward silence. A Tumble of weed.

The art of cutting off your pubes, putting them in your mouth and blowing it in someones face.
