1. To display furious, confrontational behavior without actually intending to act on such emotions.
2. To engage in a grand or public, but ultimately embarrassing display of behavior.
1. A boor. A person who embarrasses those he is with.
Example: "Did you see Frank weatherwax that dude in the "Go Hogs" t-shirt?"
Example: "Kimmie's friend turned out to be a real weatherwax."
To weatherwax someone is to influence someone in a manner Granny Weatherwax would influence someone. Granny Weatherwax is a character on the Discworld
created by Terry Pratchett. She is a witch, but on Discworld witches are the people who win the day and kick ass!
That guy just weatherwaxed me yesterday in the middle of the conversation.
Stop arguing before I weatherwax you!
