Police respond to call of felony wedgification

Last month, cops in Nebraska rolled out after a 911 caller complained about a wedgie being given to his son by a boy from the neighborhood. And if you’re unsure what a wedgie is, the North Platte Bulletin is happy to explain:

A wedgie is the condition of having one’s underwear or other garmets “wedged” between the buttocks. This can occur, due to tight garments or physical activity, or performed as a prank by another person by yanking the undergarments upward, thus “giving a wedgie.”

The cop managed to calm shit down when he showed up and, thankfully, no one was Tased or arrested. But a pair of undies was taken in for questioning.

I'm from North Platte, work here as a public defender and I must tell you reading that article when it was published was too funny.

Hee! They had a question about wedgies on "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" a few months ago and Peter Sagal had the perfect line:
"For the listeners who don't know what a wedgie is, it occurs when a person....oh, wait, you're National Public Radio listeners, you are all too familiar with the wedgie".
