one who loses a competition
A loser is one who fails.
- "He was a loser, you know. Every high school has to have at least two: it's like a national law. One male, one female. Everyone's dumping ground."
- Christine, narration, Prologue, by Stephen King
- If the whole world were a party, Jeremy would not have ended up in the kitchen. He envied the people who had made it as far as the kitchen. There might be food in the kitchen, and even some wine if you could fish the cigarette butts out of the bottle. There might even be a girl in the kitchen, although Jeremy knew the limits of his imagination.
But Jeremy would never even get an invite.
- "Thief of Time", Terry Pratchett
