A quickie English lesson:
An informal adjective defined as causing feelings of acute embarrassment or distaste
Example of usage of the phrase from good ol Mr Google:
"The play's cast was excellent, but the dialogue was unforgivably cringeworthy.."
And, a totally unrelated News In Brief, PTPTN has apparently lifted its freeze on loans for the new students of Selangor’s Unisel.
Star quoted Higher Education Minister Mohamed Khaled Nordin as follows:
"It was always PTPTN's intention to test whether the state was serious about providing free education.”
"Now that the university has acknowledged the importance of the PTPTN, it is clear that they are unable to reach the goal of free education."
Note again: News in brief is totally unrelated to the above quickie English lesson.
Like Shaun of the Dead (above) and Shaun the Sheep (below).
Both are drop dead funny, though.
And never a cringeworthy moment to boot.
