Excuse which generally goes without questioning when someone playing Call of Duty messes up, misses a shot, or gets totally embarrassed.
Kid: Hahaha dude you're so bad.
Me: Shut up I lagged.
Kid: Oh my bad.

Get the I lagged. mug.
A common excuse for when someone has an epic fail moment in a video game. It's frequently ridiculed as being too generic, to the point that people overlook that sometimes it's legit. Some people have crappy internet.
"Why did you do so bad? You're usually pretty good."

"I lagged."

"Ah, I see. I know you don't go easy on anyone, so I knew something was wrong."

"Yes. If I was having an off day I would've just told you that, but it is actually my Internet having an off day..."
