the silence in a conversation when all other parties feel that someone else should be talking, yet no one does. Usually happens directly after a weird comment is made or between two partners on a date.

an awkward silence is often followed by the birth of a retarded baby. in the event of an awkward silence, one often feels compelled to say "a retarded baby was just born," not only to break the awkwardness, but also to remind others of the myriad of awkward silences created by retarded babies, as shown in the example below, in which an imaginary retarded baby creates multiple awkward silences.
sue: "ooohhhhh you're baby's so cute! what's her name?!"
leslie: "his name is livingstyn rochhe barrell III. and--
retard: "LKDJFDKLSJ WAYGHJRTN EHHHHHHH (head lolls to side)"
sue: "oooh um...uhhh...soo...this is an awkward silence...anyways, byeee! great seeing you!"
sue calling pat: "omg leslie has a retarded baby!"
