A socially awkward situation caused by usually the telling of a poor joke, an action people witness (eg crying when drunk), or blurting out a comment that is taboo. A silence follows where the people who witness it feel a deep sense of embaressment for the person but as if they were the ones who had done the embarassing thing.
ie you ''cringe''
1) knock knock
lettuce in....*Awkward silence
2) Man did you see john last night? he got absolutely off his face drunk, called his ex girlfriend begging her to take him back & spent the night crying like a little girl....*cringe
3) everybody is chatting but one voice raises above the rest causing a silence ''i once tasted my own jizz''.
