Derived from the awkward silence before a cowboy shooting showdown. Now used when there's an awkward silence. A Tumble of weed.

A roaming party, where the sole intention is to roam, whilst partying. Thus giving the effect of a bush party that moves, i.e. a tumbleweed.

Weed (in nug or container form) that has been carried away by the wind, aka tumbling away in the wind.
Dude, we never did get up to see where our tumbleweed ended up... It's probably across the yard by now.

Dusty aggregation of plant matter rolled along the ground by the desert wind. A cliche of Western movies, emphasising silence or stillness, e.g. as the hero rides into an apparently deserted frontier town. Often used in connection with the death of a conversation after one participant unwittingly reveals that they are a moron. See also tumbleweed moment.

Something to say during an uncomfortable silence or awkward pause in conversation. the conversation is so dead that a tumbleweed could be blowing through the people you are hanging out with like a desert.
