What is “辣眼睛” (là yǎn jīng)?

Guess you have seen the word "辣眼睛" (là yǎn jīng) popping up almost everywhere on the internet, and it has become an internet catchword. So what does the term mean? It originally referred to the burning feeling in the eyes when people chop onions or peppers. But now, it's a "sarcastic" term referring to the photos or something else that one has to facepalm. You can also understand this catchword in other ways.   

"辣眼睛",这个词汇悄无声息地成为了网络上的流行用语。原义指的是当人们切辣椒、切洋葱时,它们发出的刺激性的味道让眼睛难受,但目前,这个词用来描述那些让人们"不忍直视"的图片,通常带有强烈的讽刺意味。

It's an eyesore! 真是辣眼睛!
