I think there should be a folder dedicated to Disney. Most Disney movies I've seen feature a facepalm.

This is the only place on the Web I've seen "Face Palm" as two words; everywhere else it's one. Should the title also not be just one word ("Facepalm")? I've noticed "Headdesk" already is.

possible new candidate : apparemtly the reason why any failsafes failed on the BP oil rig was down to someone not replacing a battery. re the rig that went bang in the Gulf of Mexico

Unless someone literally facepalmed, GTFO.

What's the best way to say this in prose? The only way I can think of is "He clapped a hand to his forehead", but that doesn't convey the full exasperation that "facepalm" does. Any ideas?

"He rested his forehead in his hand" "He slammed his head into his hand" "He smacked his forehead"

Does this help somehow?
