What does D.O.A. mean?

Hi, Mr. Answers!

What does D.O.A. mean? It’s mentioned in theme song of the TV show, “Friends”:  “…Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D.O.A.”— Jess

Dear Jess,

Finally, an easy one! D.O.A. stands for “devoid of acrobatics.” It’s a way of saying that you’re bored with your sex life. (Ha, ha, ha. Mr. Answers is just being hilarious—and a little regretful, actually, now that’s had to picture Chandler assuming unfortunate postures. But—on the off chance that you’re actually asking this question—what D.O.A. really stands for is “Dead on Arrival.” It’s a term used by medical professionals to indicate a patient they found, upon first arriving on the scene, to be beyond resuscitation. It’s also commonly used as slang to describe anything that was dead from the get-go. Like, say, the “Friends” spin-off series, “Joey.”)
