Doing something that makes you look like an idiot.
The word smooth being used sarcasticly for humor.
"Wow look at the dip****, he just fell down the stairs."
"Oh look he is walking over here."

smooth move exlax

"Smooth move" is a sarcastic comment in response to a stupid or crass action and "exlax" is a pejorative reference to the perpetrator of such action. The whole term comes, of course, from the fact that Exlax enables smooth bowel movements.

The insulting capability of "smooth move exlax" runs the gamut from a mild put down (as to an friend who just said or did something reasonably stupid) to a scathing remark on the inane actions of a worthy idiot.
To a friend not watching were she is walking and who runs into a sign post: "Smooth move exlax"

OR

To a submoron who realizes he was about to miss his freeway exit and proceeds to cut across three lanes of oncoming traffic, causing angry motorists to brake and nearly crash: "SMOOTH MOVE, EXLAX!"

Sorry Roy I have to agree with Jeffery as I remember back in the day when we used to say
"Smooth move ex-lax" LOL
However it still is a great Idea.

And after 24 months... you are done paying, you are a CMI for life, nothing down, 0% interest, and best of all... no annual dues ever.
