Term coined by psychologist Corinne Sweet, in response to a Travelodge survey which found that a quarter of Britons lie about their weekend activities to impress others.

Jemima: No, she's talking out of her arse, she's known for her weekendvy; she goes all Pinnochio every Monday morning.
A do-gooder who likes to clean up the streets after a riot. Names after the well known Wombles of Wimbledon Common, who make good use of the things that they find, the things that the everyday folk leave behind.
Look out for the riot wombles on their way to Clapham Junction. They'll be armed with strong language, brooms and bin bags.
