orz is used in Japan's net-slang terms. "orz" is used to show when you are in a quick depression and sad or have given up on something.
How it came to be this is that orz looks like a person on his hands and knees with their head handing lowly, much like commonly seen in depressed anime characters.
If you still have trouble seeing orz as a person, o is the head, r is the abdomen and the arm, and z is the wasite, thigh, and the leg kneeling.
Also, orz can be replaced by OTZ if you are to use capitals, but it looks better in orz.
"Dude I just lost a bet orz."
"I left my GF's house with blue balls orz"
"I'm sad orz"
"I failed a test orz"
