1. Term used after saying something rather perverted or offensive. Said to make it look like whoever said it, was actually joking but a majority of the time they are not.

2. Used to deflect personal responsibility from a blunt comment.
1. Me- "Hey, how's your day going? Oh yeah, I want to do you in the ass! Wait, what?!"

Girl- "Uh, excuse me?"

Me- "I don't know what you're talking about..."

2. Me- "Why don't you quit being such an asshole? Wait, what?"

You- "What the hell did I do?"

Me- "Um, I was just joking?"
