What is 'woe-is-me'ing?
(v.) The act of feeling sorry for yourself for no particular reason, save for the fact you have nothing to keep your mind off your past.
Yeah I was down at the coffee house, 'woe-is-me'ing with my friends.
"Woe is me" is in fact the correct usage, "woe" being the subject of the sentence and "me" being the object. Grammar aside, it is also a direct quote from the Bible and Shakespeare's Hamlet. It is an exclamation of sorrow and misfortune. The verb "woe-is-me"ing is a modern adaptation of this meaning to express said sorrow and misfortune to others. Glorified moaning, perhaps.
Ophelia: "O, woe is me, T'have seen what I have seen, see what I see!" - William Shakespeare, Hamlet. You might almost say Ophelia was 'woe-is-me'ing... if you wanted to make Shakespeare turn in his grave.
Actually this means nothing because the grammer is incorrect. Really, its "woe is I." if you dont believe it, look it up. So dont say 'woe-is-me'ing it you dont want to sound stupid to kids younger than you!
woe is i, not woe is me, and definately not 'woe-is-me'ing
