Tapas; an unfulfilling, miniscule, whore of a food that is as overpriced as it is unfulfilling. Involves foodstuffs that are halved and then halved and then halved about 10 more times, so that it can be 'shared'. Wrongly promoted as 'dinner' food, it should only ever be considered to be overpriced 'snack' food. Only ever acceptable and done properly in Spain.

A verbal expression which is used as a warning if someone annoys you and he/she/it needs to be slapped in order to shut up. "tapas" is accompanied with raising your right hand.

The term is originated from Gran Canaria, where spanish restaurant promoters very intrusively ask you if you want something to eat "you want some tapas?".

You respond by saying "im gonna give you some tapas!" ─ meaning: you are going to slap him if he won't shut up.
'The promoter just won't leave Jack alone.

I think Jack's going to dish out some tapas.'

Thoughts And Prayers And Shit. This is a term brought to prominence by The Detroitcast, a popular podcast out of Detroit. Thoughts and prayers and shit are sent out during tragic moments such as a dead baby or mass shooting. It is easier to send out meaningless TAPAS then to actually solve a problem or be useful in those situations.
