So, is this a big term where everyone else is? FAIL. Or EPIC FAIL.  Our friends at Urban Dictionary define it thusly:

either an interjection used when one disapproves of something, or a verb meaning approximately the same thing as the slang form of suck.
1] “you actually bought that? FAIL”
2] “this movie fails.”

Fail’s Big Sister is EPIC FAIL:

Epic- Anything great, spectacular, or large/monumental in nature

Fail- An inability to complete an objective, task or job either assigned or volunteered for.

Epic Fail -A mistake of such monumental proportions that it requires its own term in order to sucessfully point out the unfathomable shortcomings of an individual or group.
