  • To be lame, unworthy, pathetic. In reference to the flavors of hot sauce available at Taco Bell - mild and hot.

  • They're not piquant enough?

  • The mild needs more capsaicin.

  • Agreed. The mild sauce is only good when you actually try to eat the food without using *any* sauce. In those instances, weaksauce is better than none.

    Perfect word for this, Lampbane. Did you invent it, or see it somewhere?

  • I hear it most often as a descriptor for a lackluster event/effort.

  • Funny, my ex-boyfriend actually asked the same thing, and I was thrown for a loop. Weaksauce is one of those words that I guess doesn't make a strong impression when you first hear it, but it worms its way into your vocabulary anyway.

    So no, I didn't invent the word. My best guess is that I first saw it on some video game site.

  • Actually, Taco Bell has a hotter sauce than hot, known as fire. It still isn't up to wild sauce at BW3s, but it is a considerable improvement.

  • I was trying to remember the name of the third sauce! I knew there was more than mild and hot, I just couldn't remember what the next step was. I just loved the progression.

  • Anyone want to do a chilisauce list?

  • Here's palooka's, if it's what you have in mind. :-)
