To write or say something particularly tasteless, offensive or out-of-touch without even realizing it. Originates from Deadspin's coverage of sports columnist Mark Whicker's piece about the wacky things that happened in the sports world while recently-found kidnapping victim Jaycee Dugard spent 18 years living in a shed.

- Did you read that Bill Simmons column comparing Tiger Woods' sex scandal to Muhammad Ali refusing to fight in Vietnam?

- Yeah, he really did leave the yard on that one.
