A phrase used in substitution for actual reasons. It's typically used in situations where a question is either too complex to give a sound logical answer and it's simpler to convince the other person that they should just give you the benefit of the doubt, or because the question is incredibly stupid and therefore not worth answering, or the answer that would have been given should be obvious to anyone with a brain. It can also be used to just make a statement about something.
Person 1: I fucking hate Carrot Top.
Person 2: Why?

Person 1: Are you voting for Santorum in the primaries?
Person 2: No, because reasons.

A phrase used to when one wants something badly, usually something that seems strange or completely random. It's normally used when someone is either 1.) too excited about the item to explain why they want it or 2.) doesn't WANT to explain why they want it. The phrase is taken from the "Pardon Me" strip in the webcomic "Three Word Phrase."
Pardon me, Sir. Do you have anything that will make a butt extremely slippery? I want the slipperiest butt imaginable. The most slippery butt you can have is the kind of butt I want.

....I want this because of reasons.
