haha! i've never heard of a beaver, but it sure sounds feasible.

i'll be sure to greet the eagle at the doorstep, assuming it won't be followed by a procession of black vans.

The wedgie in Bad Santa is an all time classic.

My kids say a melvin is a reverse wedgie, like Vin said.

This reminds me of a rope swing when I was a kid. You sat on a pole waiting to get the rope handed to you. This one time a friend of mine got a wedgie while waiting for the rope. Then his drawers were drapped over the pole and he got knocked off it. He hung there awhile in pain until the elastic gave way. Then he was stuck at the bottom of the pole with the elastic still around the pole. A bad day for him. But it still brings a smile to my face.

I heard that Buzz used to work at this store and there was this guy that no one liked and his name was Melvin, so they named the band after him?
