When I was coming up, we called it a "melvin".
im surprised that it took this long for wedgie to be added
i know the OED has added a lot of stuff in recent years and continues to do so
I, too, am surprised it took this long for "wedgie" to appear in the OED... especially since other, much more faddish words have already made it in there.
My guess... someone gave the editor a wedgie, just to prove a point:
"Ow! What the hell was that?"
"That's not in the OED!"
"Well, maybe it should be..."
this is Websters, im pretty sure it is in the OED already though
Whoops, my bad. Maybe I should learn to read.
My Unabridged Random House dictionary from 1986 does not include "wedgie", but my Encarta dictionary from 1999 does include the variant "wedgy" to describe an intrusion of underpants into the nether regions.
Cripes, THIS is the way my hometown makes it into the news...
Yeah, its about time. While Oxford adds words like "Bling bling" to the dictionary, Websters has been sitting on their asses.
bling bling!!! heheh fo shizzle
Melvin is a more California term. Though I guess it does it serve to contrast the accidental versus intentional.
Is referred to with (translated): "The wrapper stuck to the candy" in France.
