Terms for Wedgies

When someone grabs your underwear from behind and gives it a good, vertical yank, it’s called a wedgie. A caller knows that term, but wonders whether and how a wedgie differs from a murphy or a melvin. This is part of a complete episode.


wedgie n. jocularly, a standard bicycle. Etymological Note: So-called because a rider astride a standard bicycle is likely to have a wedgie, where underpants ride up into the crack of the buttocks. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
