Dropping an ice cream cone on the sidewalk. Slipping on a banana peel. Attempting to throw a water balloon at your friend but slipping and smashing it in your face instead. There's only one expression that adequately describes these situations: epic fail.
But, epic fail isn't the only term for these ridiculously crummy situations. The English language has all kinds of colorful sayings for when things go to s**t.
And yeah, there's some strong language ahead. What can we say? Epic fails make us want to scream @#$%!
