Wenis. I assumed my girlfriend was just being weird this morning when she playfully bit my elbow referred to it as my wenis. Wenis? Really? I’d never heard such a thing. I had to investigate.
First stop, one of my favorite Web sites, Merriam-Webster. Result: inconclusive.
Next stop Wikipedia, the BE ALL END ALL for knowledge as we know it…a link so some ancient Egyptian God (apparently also a character on Star Gate…)
At this point I could have been convinced that my girl was just messing with me. But furhter investigation was in order. A Gogole search led me to the next four results. First up Yahoo ANswers actually had the most scientific answer.
I can only assume the users who frequent AnswerBag.com are complete morons.
Urban Dictionary gave fairly consistent responses.
Finally, WikiAnswers came up with the most realistic answer to my question: no one really knows why folks call it that.
So, popular vote has it that wenis is indeed part of our American English language vernacular. But it still sounds dirty, and I don’t mind being bitten there.
