a hanging wedgie is when someone gives you a wedgie that lifts you completely off the ground.
One week my mom desided to go on a cruise for a whole week. As soon as my mom leaves my brother who's 3 years older gets pissed off at me. So he took my me by my underwear and gave me a hanging wedgie off a short but strong branch in the backyard. I would hang by my underwear for 8 to 10 hours at a time. The only time he would let me down is to give me water so i would pee a lot. 6 whole days went by and the same underwear i had worn sence day 1 did not rip. probably 10 minutes before my mom came home he let me down and threatened to leave me there next time if i told on him.
