Before today’s [Buzzword], I’d like to ask you a question: have you ever fallen over accidentally with your face moving towards the ground or a surface?

If you have, then you can just say you did a faceplant

a fall with your face moving towards the ground or a surface before the rest of your body.

If someone faceplants, they involuntarily fall forwards so that their whole face comes into contact with the surface they fall into. Typically this is the ground, but you can potentially faceplant into anything – a wall, the door, a clump of bushes … even your bowl of porridge!

The word faceplant appears to date back to the early 2000s, originally used to describe accidents in skateboarding and snowboarding. It was formed as a humorous variant of the word handplant, an intentional move in these sports in which the skater balances on their hand as they complete a manoeuvre.
