Used to point out or emphasise silence. (Well, not precisely silence, since chirping crickets make sound. But you get it.)

The idea is that you can only hear crickets when there are no other sounds, such as conversation or laughter. Often used to denote the awkward pause after a bad joke.
Joe: What's the sound of two drums and a cymbal falling over a cliff?
Ted: *tiredly* I don't know, Joe. What is the sound of two drums and a cymbal falling over a cliff?
Joe: baDUM-ksh!

*crickets chirp*

Joe: ...Oh, come on. That was funny.

A term coined by Terrson to represent a form of Jenga where one removes an article of clothing whenever the tower falls.
It was a fearsome sight indeed after the tower fell for the last time, after that, strip jenga was forever banned in the lounge.

<Terrson> My name shall not go down in history as the guy who codified Strip Jenga.
Guess again, Terrson.
