You know when you have some fried chicken on your plate and it's the last piece at the cookout and of COURSE you drop it on the floor. Then what do you do? After all, it's disgusting to eat food that fell on the floor. Well, the 5 SECOND RULE says that after 5 seconds, any food that fell on the floor immediately becomes un-germified. So after 5 seconds, eat whatever you dropped on the floor, cuz the rule is what really matters.

John: "Oh well," ::picks slice up and waits five seconds:: "5 second rule!" ::BITE!::

An unwritten law dictating that if a food or other consumable item is dropped onto the floor, it may be picked up up and eaten within five seconds. The reasoning behind this is that dirt and germs take six seconds to transfer from one surface to another.
"Oops, dropped my popsicle. Five second rule!"

Rule invoked whenever dropped food is picked up and consumed in the presence of others. Time can vary widely depending on the type of food dropped: a sirloin steak at a barbecue may have nine lives, while a street vendor hotdog is declared unfit for consumption even before it touches the ground.
Once I saw it slip from his tongs, I asked the street meat vendor if I could get a new sausage.

A myth that says that if you drop food on the floor, and pick it up within 5 seconds then it's okay to eat. But research done at University of Illinois has disproved this, and says that food picked up in under 5 seconds had a significant amount of bacteria on it.
"Ewwwww! Your gonna eat that? It's been on the floor!!" "Yeah, 5 second rule."
