English: a tighty whitie wedgie

Popularized during drunken 1980s fraternity parties, the atomic wedgie in considered an ancient rite that is usually not so painful and not commonly executed this day and age.

(NewsOk) – A Pottawatomie County law enforcement officer reports that he never knew of “‘an atomic wedge’” before today.  But on December, 21st, 2013, a deadly atomic wedgie lead a man named Brad Davis to come forward to investigators, and confess that he gave such a wedgie to his stepfather, Denver Lee St. Clair, who was pronounced dead on the scene when authorities arrived.

In a headline that one would think is from The Onion, this sad story is reported by News Oklahoma.

Sheriff Booth confirmed the shock of law enforcement officials:  “I’d never seen this before, but when we first looked at our victim seeing the waistband of his underwear was around his neck.”

According to the backstory provided, the incident between the stepfather and stepson occurred after Davis went to visit his stepfather’s residence.  St. Clair allegedly ‘jumped’ Davis, who purportedly responded by using the ‘wedgie’ as a defense.
