When stuff you are eating falls on the floor, you have two options. You can pick it up and eat it, or you can throw it out. The five second rule is used when what ever falls is tasty, but you dont want to gross out your friends by eating something dirty. The five second rule, when imposed (usually along with a quick rinse or blow off) makes what ever you still want to eat socially acceptable to eat and void of all dirtyness. The 5 second rule may be be changed to the 10 second rule, the 15 second rul, or the "i have no clue how long its been there" rule.
guy one: dude, you just dropped your good tasting stuff
guy two: aww crap, butter move fast to make the five second rule. This stuff sure isnt good enough for a ten-er or a 15-er.

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!"

The rule by which one determines whether or not food is safe after falling onto the floor. That is, if you are able to retrieve said item within 5 seconds, it is not dirty and is safe to eat.

* Note: in fraternity houses, this rule is the 1.5 second rule. Rule is invalid in the restroom.
Person 1: Oh no, my chicken wing fell on the floor!
Person 2: 5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ...
Person 1: Got it!
Person 2: 5-second rule. It's yours, dude.

2. A rule governing the amount of time it takes for George W Bush to speak before he mispronounces a word.

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."
