crappymeal

220; compounding
word of condolence expressing shared distress at an unfortunate occurrence or circumstance Compounding: crappy (having negative qualities, metaphorically like dung) + meal (food). I am informed that this is a play on the word HappyMeal; but whereas the McDonald's supposedly cheers you up, a crappymeal is depressing or unfortunate. This is someone’s personal vocabulary, so I don’t think it’s in common use.
 
Ah, crappymeal.
Etymology : crappy (meaning stupid or unfortunate, Du. "krappe") + meal (OE, Frisian "mele")
Source : Friend’s reaction to bad news
