Maybe it's a local thing. When I was at school what most other people appear to call a 'wedgie' was known as a 'melvin'. (Melvins are funnier because anything that has the term 'melvin' associated with it is automatically funny.)

Now I'm wondering how that band The Melvins got their name.

Who was the original Melvin it was named after, I wonder?

I was slightly disconcerted to see this little bugger leering up at me from the pavement one night on the way home from the pub:

It's a crushed takeaway food tray - but I'll admit I did a double-take when I first noticed it.

Looks like it's about to throw up which seems appropriate considering it's likely contents.
