look up any word, like pussy:
Getting pinned down while swimming alongside a killer whale in open waters; I fail of immense proportions; Free Willy 3: The Rescue.
"Oh man, did you see that killer whale fall on top of that diver!?"

"Yeah! That was a whale fail!!"

"Almost as whale fail as Keiko in Norway!"
