The word "facepalm" didn't even exist in the vernacular until a relatively recently, a completely internet invented word, and yet it was a word very necessary in the vocabulary. It describes the action of, and disappointment or embarrassment felt when something is so stupid or ridiculous one must raise palm to face in disbelief. When tekamul saw this morning's image of ASIMO celebrating its 9th birthday with two Japanese weirdos, he imagined the little robot experiencing a facepalm moment, commenting:

If Asimo had a face, you'd be able to read the embarrassment all over it. Even humanoid walking robots know these guys are douche bags.

We wouldn't put it past ASIMO to fall down a flight of stairs to get away from those fellows.
