    So, you tell a bad joke and they give you the "look". You're treading water to find a way to lessen the cringe. I mean... the first thing that comes to mind is just to dab, make a swift 180, and walk away with your head held high like a boss. What would you do?

    I can see why you get into these cringy situations in the first place.

    Just pretend you didn't say anything and everyone will probably do the same. Idk your friends, though.

    Carry a pair of huge self-adhesive eyebrows. Slap them on your forehead and waggle them and go "Eh? Eh? Eh? No? Okay."

    Optional bonus: take out a notepad, and cross a line out muttering "that one didn't work", "back to the ol' drawing board", "needs tweaking" etc.
