Fail to Win
Failing so hard you loop back to win, alternatively known as F2W, Fail-to-Win, or MulligaWAIT NEVERMIND, is the act of turning a fail into a win either on purpose or through NO action on your part. The latter is usually the case, meaning that you are not a winner, but rather the luckiest son of a bitch on earth. There many ways to pull off this powerhouse dynamo and spit in the crusty eyes of God, most notably exclaiming "I did it for the lulz!" when you're about to fail/ currently are failing super hard.
Ways to Fail so hard you wind up Winning

See main article: Meme Combining
Everyone knows the vast majority of memes are overused, unfunny, forced, and gay. This also means that sometimes, reasonably fun memes are contaminated by the poison of horribly unfunny shit. One example:
The result is a cringe-worthy amalgam of Failure to make you laugh, but Success in mildly entertaining you.
What NOT to look for
If you happen across something that you aren't sure about, run it by the TJC, or alternatively, realize you are a dumb fuck and desperately need to remedy the situation. Avoid trying to make something a F2W (or any variation) unless the forces of awesome and suck are colliding.
To the left is an example of what is usually misconstrued as a F2W; poorly done, unfunny, and not even a chance of having sex with it. Remember: No Fails, Fail-Fails, Wins, Win-Wins
