太尴尬了,只好“捂脸”

A facepalm is the physical gesture of placing one's hand flat across one's face or lowering one's face into one's hand or hands. The facepalm is a gesture which is common in many cultures, and even sometimes seen in chimpanzees!

Facepalm指的是用手捂住脸或将脸埋进手掌的肢体动作,即“捂脸”。捂脸这种动作在很多文化中都很常见,连大猩猩也会呢!

Although a facepalm is usually used to express frustration or embarrassment, in the context of a surrounding conversation it can also be used to express other emotions, such as disgust or dismay. A facepalm is often a reaction to a momentary lapse in common sense, judgement, or logical behaviour. It can be directed towards another person – i.e.: a non-verbal way of saying "I can't believe you just said/did that …" – or used in a self-deprecating way to make it clear to others that you're aware that you've said or done something stupid.

这个动作多用来表达沮丧或者尴尬,不过,在对话语境中,也可以用来表达厌恶或失望的情绪。在常识、判断或者逻辑短暂缺失的情况下,我们通常会做出捂脸的动作。同时,这个动作也可以指向他人,即,用无声的方式表达“我真不敢相信你说了那样的话/做了那样的事,”或者用来自嘲,让别人明白,你知道自己做了傻事或者说了傻话。

Facepalm first appeared about five years ago, and has steadily gained ground as a popular term in Internet culture.

捂脸一词大约出现在五年前,现在已经成为网络文化流行词。
