Top definition
A polite gesture used to make a bad joke less awkward. But, in turn, creates an increasingly more awkward situation.

Often used at small cocktail gatherings with not enough hard liquor available, and weddings with cash bars.
At Uncle Grayson's funeral, Marly told that completely innapropriate joke that caused the awkward chuckle to ripple throughout the room.
