Here are a few quintessential shitty and lame things, at least in my world:
1. Putting a cup of chili or stew in the microwave for just a few seconds and skipping the cover-it part. It blows ass all over the inside of the microwave: shitty and lame.
2. Dripping paint on the ground when you're painting and not realizing it. Stepping in the paint and not realizing it. Walking all over the house like a human stamp, leaving a trail of identical dick-shaped paint stains behind you: shitty and lame.
3. Getting in the shower and soaking down, then realizing you forgot to put the new soap (or shampoo or whatever) in there and having to go out and drip water all over the bathroom while you paw around the cabinet for a bar of Dial while your freezing and wet and naked: shitty and lame.
4. Elton John being a knight: shitty and lame.
