Texas Wedgie

The Nickelodeon children’s television show iCarly featured several “Texas wedgies” in 2008. A “wedgie” is when someone’s undergarments are pulled up to wedge between the buttocks. A “Texas wedgie”—from the popular notion that “everything’s bigger in Texas”—is simply a big, powerful wedgie. The name “atomic wedgie” was used on the television show Seinfeld.

Some websites state that a “Texas wedgie” involves throwing a match down the underpants, but that method appears to be spurious and has never been used on Nickelodeon’s iCarly. (The smoke shown was the result of the extreme force of the wedgie.) There is a 2001 citation for “Texas wedgie” (see below), but it doesn’t appear that the term was known before 2008 (when there are multiple citations).


Wikipedia: Wedgie
A wedgie (also known as a snuggie, grundie, gotch pull, or mervin) is having one’s underwear or other garments “wedged” between the buttocks. This can occur naturally, due to tight garments or physical activity; this is referred to as the underwear “riding up”. It can also be performed as a prank or as a form of bullying; this is referred to as “giving (a person) a wedgie”. Wedgies are commonly featured in popular culture works, either as a form of low comedy or as a behavior representative of bullying.

. In the Nickelodeon TeenNick show iCarly, wedgies feature frequently: Freddie (Nathan Kress) receives a wedgie from Sam (Jennette McCurdy)and shows his briefs ; Jonah (Sam’s boyfriend) is given a hanging wedgie; and in the episode “iGot Detention”, Gibby receives at least two “Texas" wedgies. The humor is found in the fact that his pants are smoking in the scene where he walks through the hallway, implying that the wedgie occurred quickly and frequently enough to create a great amount of friction (and therefore pain and smoke).

Lastly, Sarah Jessica Barker has discovered what the kid’s call the Texas Wedgie Technique.  I have no idea how or where she picked up the skill, but it can take the victim DAYS to pull their undies back into the correct position.  My suspicion is it’s one too many iCarly episodes.

For example, a wedgie in which the hem of someone’s underwear is pulled so high it can touch the back of their head is called a Texas Wedgie. I guess, all things great in size come from Texas, right?

A wedgie administered from the front side also has a name. Boop calls a wedgie of this variety of Frotler. Let’s just hope no one tries to administer the Texas Frotler. That might have devastating residual effects.

The Texas wedgie is when you give a wedgie and then you drop a match thus giving him a hot butt.
