When you and your friends have just smoked a delious bowl and your glass piece is clogged with weed, making it impossible to take a monster rip and someone decides to make a stand and unclog the piece. They do so by sucking in as violently as possible sucking in any buds that may be clogging your inhaling mechanism. He then makes a face of disgust and opens his mouth and shows his tongue. His tongue is covered in ash. He has sacraficed himself in order for the smoking session to run faster and more effiecent.
-"Dude, whats going on, I barely got anything off that hit"
-"I was afraid of this."
-"Afraid of what?"
_"I must 'Take one for the team'"
-"You brave little soldier"

Essentially getting with the most hideous out of a group of potential mates. Typically used in male circles about women, calling this individual the grenade. Doing this would allow for friends to get some.
