When someone pulls or yanks your underwear up and over your head.
At school, I still wore whitey tighties. No one knew about it because my shirt always covered it. But one day, when I took off my pants, someone accidently ran into me and everyone watching saw my underwear. Immediatly, the "boxer" people came over and pulled my whitey tighties up and over my head which became an atomic wedgie. My butt hurt like crazy! To make it better, they found duck-tape and tied me up and threw me in one of their lockers. They didn't let me out untill the end of PE class which lasted 45 minutes. It hurt!

When someone pulls your(tighty whities, briefs, boxer briefs, or boxers) up and over your head! Creates pain in both the ass and balls! This is why the atomic wedgie is so popular among wedgies.
How to perform an atomic wedgie:
1- Make sure the nerd!you chose is wearing tightie wighties.
2- Call a crowd to the hallway/lunchroom you are performing the atomic wedgie in.
3- Throw nerd's books/lunch on the floor, as he bends down, pull his undies up.
4- Have a friend cover the nerd's mouth for he will start shrieking or crying.
5- Keep pulling the legholes should be showing by now, this is good for it means the nerd's briefs are firmly in between the victim's ass cheeks.
6- Now the undies should be at te back of the nerd's head. Keep pulling over the nerd's head. For added discomfort you can have another buddy pull down te victim's pants and spank the ass cheeks of your nerd till' they turn cherry red.
7- You may also tape the elastic to the chin of said nerd. Now te victim will be blinded and be running around hitting things.
8- Tear a hole in the nerd's tightie whities/colored briefs. Go to the cafeteria and get some slimy food to slip into te nerd's undies.
9- Now you have three options, you could release him and he will try to attack you, you could give him swirlies and not stop flushing, or you could hang him from the flagpole at the end of school.
10- You may now walk away knowing you have definately scarred him for life.

The atomic is a time honoured classic often depicted in cartoons. The 'atomic' wedgie is when ones underwear is actually pulled over the wearers head, whilst still being worn. very difficult to pull off.

Can often cause rectal bleeding.
"ahh man, that ass just gave me an atomic wedgie! god does my ass hurt!!"

I Atomic wedgie is when someone comes up and yanks your underwear til it reaches your head.
One time when i was like 13 (i still had tighty whities) I had my friends over and my brother and his friends came behind us and yanked our underwear up into a Atomic wedgie. My balls were on fire and my ass hurt like hell! Then he and his friends took our clothes off and duck taped the wedgie to our foreheads and hanged us ona very tall tree were there was a branch below us so if we fell our nuts would get smashed. So then after 3 hours all our underwear ripped and we all fell and when we checked our balls they were so read that i was going to hurt like hell.

1. a instance of pulling up a person's underwear between their buttocks and over their head

2. any severe wedgie
Some say an atomic wedgie is an urban myth.

A form of wedgie in which the victim's underwear is pulled up so far it reaches over their head, usually hooked under the chin so they are blinded at the same time. This can be done as either a back or a front wedgie, though front is much harder to achieve.
I gave atomic wedgies to the nerds who really deserved it. This punishment was best done in a locker room, where I had the time and help from others to give the best atomic wedgies to the nerds and freshmen. It often made them cry, and a couple even pissed their pants because of it. One of my favorite wedgies to dish out .

An atomic wedgie consists of 10 steps: Number 1: Find a victim, preferably in a public place(school).Make sure the victim is male, weak, and wears tighty whities.Also, a nerdy kid is recommended.Number 2:Knock the kids books down in the hallway. Make sure they are all on the floor.He will bend over to pick them up. Number 3: When he bends over, grab his underpant's waistband. Make sure you have a tight grip on his undies before yanking.(Take note of what kind of underpants he is wearing,so you know which type is strongest and won't rip easily.Two good kinds are Hanes and Fruit of the Loom.)Number 4: By this time the victim knows what you are trying to do, so, before he can run away, you must pull his underpants up with all your strength.Pull up and do not release your grip. The victim will probably start crying,or shreik out with pain, so you have to cover his mouth to prevent an adult from hearing. To do this, you should probably get someone to help you.Number 5: Keep pulling! The underpants should be showing in the front, too. Also the legholes should start to appear in the back. That is a very good sign, because it tells you that the undies are wedged right in between the victim's butt cheeks. This causes extreme pain, but to make sure that the victim is embaressed, you must make sure that a crowd is watching. To get a crowd, you might want to tell people what you are going to do before you wedgie the victim. Number 6: If the victim pees,it will only make him more embaressed. Don't forget to keep pulling, because your goal is to pull the underwear over the head. To add to the embaressment, have one of your friends, to pull down the victim's pants. Since the undies are being pulled up, most of the victim's butt will be showing.Tell your friend to get a book and spank his butt with as much force as possible. His cheeks will turn beet red when you are done.Number 7: the underwear will be near the back of the victim's head by now. Keep pulling and you will eventually reach up over the victim's head, causing the underwear to go further up the victim's crack. You can duct tape the undies to the victims forehead for more effect. The undies will blind the victim, often causing them to run in circles and run into things. Number 8: Bring the victim to the boys bathroom. He won't know where he is because of the undies! Bring them to a stall, where a dirty toilet is. The water can be either clean, or if you like filled with either pee, or poop. Grab the victim's head, and push it into the toilet bowl. The victim will try to scream, but only gurgles will come out. Take the toilet handle and press it as many times as possible. Splashing will occurand this will get the victim wet with more toilet water. Be sure that the wedgie is still in, and while the victims head is in the toilet you might want to give the undies a couple more yanks.Number 9: Take the victims clothes off, except the undies,Know he will have to stay there or be completly embaressed. Be sure to laugh at him. This can cause the victim to become frustrated and try to attack you. If he does, yank his undies until they rip, give him constant nuggies til his hair falls out, and swirlie him till he can't breath. You can clean his ears with the wet willy, ore spank him until he cries for his mom.At this point the victim is totally soiled, so you hav emany options. You can even go to the cafeteria, get some old food and stick it down his underpants if you want to. This causes a messy wedgie!!!Number 10: Hang the victim from flagpole at the end of school. He will stay there for the rest of the night. Walk proudly away from your victim, knowing that you had scarred him for life.(By the way, these instructions are based on what happened to me yesterday. It hurt!)
Last year, I waswalking down the hall when my underpants were yanked up over my head, causing extreme pain. It was an atomic wedgie. They stuffed me into a locker and left me there all weekend. My crack was stuffed with tighty whities, and I couldn't do anything about it.
