boo-boo face
 n.— «Drawing on the heaviest weapon from her considerable thespian arsenal, she makes a boo-boo face. As the tears stream down her cheeks, it is apparent to all but southern TV critics that Annalise has firmed in the betting for next year’s Gold Logie. I’ll go out on a limb here and state that no soap star makes boo-boo face like Annalise….He said he was bloody upset too, and promised at the next premiers’ conference to put up for debate the question of whether watching Annalise make boo-boo face deserves to be included in the Medicare schedule.» —“Annalise’s Exit A Crying Shame” by C. Johnston Courier-Mail (Australia) July 25, 1994. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
