Top definition
a variation of the more familiar, 'close, but no cigar.'

the little known phrase spawned from a conversation between a group of intellects in a small neighborhood bar on a weeknight. however, its true origin would be the confused mind of Meredith.

traditionally a phrase used by competing golfers. the new variation has yet to be clearly defined, but is assumed to be condescending.
