'Dead meat' nghĩa lóng là xác chết (a corpse or carcass); cụm từ này nghĩa là 'xong phim', 'xong béng', 'chết chắc' (one that is doomed, as to obsolescence, ruin, or death). Ngoài ra, cụm từ này còn có nghĩa là tên đặt cho ai đó đăng (post) những thứ rác rưởi, tục tĩu (rubbish) ở phòng chat chung (a name for someone who posts rubbish comments on public chatrooms) hoặc = fuck em gái nào đó khi em ý quá say, không biết trời đất gì (to have sexual intercourse with a girl who is passed out from drinking to much).

Ví dụ
