Screw the Teletubbies and The wiggles; my children will be raised on Free to Be…You and Me.
Will experiencing “culture” be restricted only to productions of The wiggles?
Also, just compare it to Barney's “I love you” or The wiggles' “Fruit Salad.”
early 13c., perhaps from Middle Dutch or Middle Flemish wigelen, frequentative of wiegen "to rock," from wiege "cradle" (cf. Old High German wiga, German Wiege, Old Frisian widze), from PIE root *wegh- "to move" (see weigh). Related: Wiggled; wiggling. The noun is attested from 1816.
A white person, esp a teenager, who imitates the style and behavior of inner-city blacks: When I was wearing my permanent-press Lees with matching Adidas sneakers, kids I went to school with were calling me a wigger
[1990s+; apparently a shortening of white nigger; perhaps influenced by wigger, ''a very crazy person,'' fr jazz talk]
[scientific computation] In solving partial differential equations by finite difference and similar methods, wiggles are sawtooth (up-down-up-down) oscillations at the shortest wavelength representable on the grid. If an algorithm is unstable, this is often the most unstable waveform, so it grows to dominate the solution. Alternatively, stable (though inaccurate) wiggles can be generated near a discontinuity by a Gibbs phenomenon.
