Smarter Than A Sixth Grader

Backstory: my mom tells us things that are not true and then we repeat them and look like idiots. This “weenus” fact was actually told to her by a sixth grader. She believes everyone and everything.
mom: Did you know that your elbow flab is called your “weenus”? How are the boys [our dogs]?
me:That can’t be true. Is that a medical term?
mom: Truth…bodhi [our dog] knows…or he will poop on your head…weenus.

      Actually this is true. Elbow skin is called wenis.

      I’ve never heard “weenus” before. But I have heard “bingo wings” for upper arm flab.

      I’ve actually heard that as well about the wenis, but I will always think of Friends when I hear the word wenis. It was an acronym used to describe some big project Chandler worked on when he had the job nobody remembered.

      I would think that…in this case…having a small wenis is a good thing!

      Mother has these “little known scientific facts” that she likes to share with us–they are always complete bs but pretty entertaining!

      Correction: the flapping flesh between the elbow and armpit is called
      the “BYJONES.” As in, when you’re wearing a tank top and your friend Joan is leaving after a visit, you stand out front and wave,
      “Bye Joan!!!”…

      Elizabeth, when I read your post it took me back to a time I used to play bingo and buy golly I do remember some of those old ladies holding up their bingo card and waving it and having those “wing” just a flapping in the wind. That one had me laughing out loud, although my wife did not appreicate it very much as she is trying to get rid of those wings.

      Finally, an online urban dictionary gave me the answer, confirming what my daughter had told me. Your weenus, should you decide to accept it, is the loose skin on your elbow.

      There. Now you know what a weenus is. Now you can take off your plaid coat and loafers and get back to the business of being old. But wait! Why should we allow teenagers to give their own weird name to this crucial part of our anatomy?

      Weenuses of the world, I think we owe the skin on our elbows a little better. This perpetually dry, cracked, and nearly numb skin has been the laughing stock of the body for too long. I’m no doctor, but I believe the ”loose skin on your elbow” is the only part of the anatomy without a name. That must mean that Gray’s Anatomy and millions of doctors since have concluded it isn’t a body part at all, just ”loose skin on your elbow.”

      Actually… the elbow flab IS actually called a wenis. Not spelled like weenus but pronounced the same.

      wenis, weenis, or wenus, anyway u spell it isn’t a medical term. this is a slang term made up by imature people. tho it is well known to be “the flab of skin you can pull, pinch, bite… with little or no feeling, because of the little amount of nerve endings, on your elbow” you will not find it in any dictionary or medical dictionary.
      the only place you will find it is on urban dictionary, which information could be sent by a second grader and thought of as a fact; ergo wenis currently isn’t even a real word.
