* In the 2000 production of ''Music/JesusChristSuperstar'', Jusas's reaction to Simon and his calls for armed revolution in the song "Simon Zealotes" is a series of continual face-palms, followed by continual glares at Jesus for allowing it to get this bad in the first place.

A variation is "''{{headdesk}}''", in which the character is sitting behind a desk or table and slams his forehead down onto it. In particularly extreme cases, these actions can also be combined to perform a ''*facepalmheaddesk* '' maneuver.

See: SurroundedByIdiots, OnlySaneMan, and TheTake. Also look at AsideGlance. May be combined with INeedAFreakingDrink.

Closely related to {{Headdesk}} and FaceFault, and may be accompanied by the line "That's the StupidestThingIveEverHeard!" Not directly related to FacePalmOfDoom, in which you attack by placing your palm on ''someone else's'' face. Also closely related to DisapprovingLook, which is also known as the [[Literature/NoCountryForOldMen "Implied Facepalm"]].

Applying a DopeSlap is often a form of ready relief for the headaches that cause a Face Palm.

* Across the street from the Oklahoma City National Memorial is a statue of Jesus Christ performing this gesture. The statue, "And Jesus Wept", depicts him averting his gaze and crying at the loss of life in the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing that killed 168 people in 1995, in addition to severely damaging St. Joseph's Catholic Church, which used to be located where the statue now stands (the congregation of the church financed the statue's construction).
