Prepositional phrase[edit]

for the lose

  1. (Internet, slang) Something undesirable; an exclamation suggesting an unwanted result or condition.

This phrase is a contrived antithesis of for the win, and is crafted to mean exactly opposite to that phrase in every way.

Usage notes[edit]

More often than not, this phrase is used online and shortened to "FTL". Very frequently, the phrase will be used in fragments lacking verbs; e.g.: "Another all-day meeting FTL."
