Epic Fail- Overused and Abused.

A lot of the students I T.A. for are quite funny and it is a very enjoyable time to watch them work and make jokes. The one joke that has gone too far beyond the limit is the Epic Fail accusation. One of the girls says this about everything. You can’t use and abuse something like that. Everything mediocre is Fail. When something is just that big and there’s no other words for it, its Epic Fail. Don’t confuse it.


This is the same principle that should be considered when using the word Fuck. People who overuse this word, which is extremely annoying, diminish its worth to pretty much nothing and when they really do need to use it, it doesn’t show the same effect.

Make sure that Epic Fail is used when something really is an Epic Fail. Don’t just throw it around like lunch food in a high school cafeteria. When you use this phrase, MAKE IT COUNT.

  1. The thing about Fuck is the delivery. A well-timed and properly articulated Fuck can make almost anything better . . .

    On a side note, I see that your Twitter Widget isn’t working either. Methinks there’s a flaw in the slaw . . .

  2. Yes from what I’ve noted, my twittertastic twitter widget is a hit and miss. Nothing I can do about that situation though. Sometimes when I get on it is working and other times negetive. I’m not too perturbed.

  3. i agree. on of the best things about internet culture just died. people dont even understand the concept of “FAIL”. i was in an xbox live party with my friend and he was playing resident evil 5 he got mad and said “omg this zombie is such a failure, OMG EPIC FAIL. WHAT A FREAKING f**ING FAIL WOOOOOOOOOOOOW THIS GAME IS THE BIGGEST FAIL EVER. IM GOING TO TAKE A PICTURE OF IT AND PUT IT ON THE INTERNET.” because he obviously (along with LOTS of other people) doesnt understand fail, nor the origin of it. if u agree with me add me on aim and xbx live

  4. Well I would love to add you on xbox live but at the present time I do not have xbox live for myself. I hope to get it very soon, but I didn’t yet so when I do we can play some serious video games.

  5. Well let’s get off the xbox live topic and onto the actual topic, EPIC FAIL!!!. First of all, you may need a large English dictionary to interpret the definitions and meanings of the vocabulary I shall use. Many of you “stoners” enjoy calling “geeklish” which for the matter of fact is not in the English dictionary. I don not agree with you that epic fail is being over-used, yet I do not disagree with you. I think if you made a large campaign about the mis-used version of this lovely saying and giving others the correct saying, the “abused” part of the situation would be dealt with causing others use it less now knowing what it’s actual definition is. Then again, it’s just my opinion.
