uh-oh-face guy

noun. The poster boy for Wall Street whoopsies and other boo-boos of our time.

Real citation:"Would You Want To Be Known As The 'Uh-Oh Face' Guy?
This is always something I've wondered about -- there are these 'faces' on Wall Street that serve as a collective representation of the mood. It's practically the definition of a 'picture is worth a thousand words' moment. So the newspapers and all the media jump on said image to use for the frontpage headlines about jitters, meltdowns, collapses, and crises. After all, it humanizes the news to reflect its effect on people rather than just some numbers and acronyms with big plus and minus signs."

Made-up citation: "Only a trained facial technician can tell the difference between uh-oh-face guy and I-just-dropped-a-deuce-in-my drawers-face guy. Apply to the Technical Institute of Facial Technology today."
