Academic Milestone

The Chronicle of Higher Education reports:
"The lowly wedgie is finally getting some respect. Webster's New World College Dictionary, the primary dictionary of The Chronicle and The New York Times, is adding this definition in the edition that hits bookstores in May:

wedgie (wej'e) n. a prank in which the victim's undershorts are jerked upward so as to become wedged between the buttocks

The new definition of wedgie will join the existing one, a type of shoe."

Well, all I can say is it's about time.
