riggwelted
 adj.— «When once asked by a government official how teachers were adapting to the latest set of changes to the national curriculum, he said he thought they were “fair riggwelted.” That, as one small boy explained to him on a school inspection, is when the “yow” is “heavy pregnant, so heavy you see, she falls over on her back and just can’t move. She’s helpless. Sticks her legs in t’air and just can’t shift.”» —“The master storyteller” by Elaine Williams Guardian (U.K.) Apr. 14, 1998. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
