A wobbly (but unfallydowny
) toy from back in the day. (Actually, it originated in the 70's
, which is well before MY 'back in the day
,' but I can pretend to be cool and know what I'm talking about.) (And anyway, Playskool
still makes incarnarnations of the darn things.)
While I never had Hasbro's brand name
Weebles, I did play with a DIY version my uncle made for me. It involved a purple plastic easter egg (you know, the kind you get three jelly beans in) with a penny taped inside the bottom half and a rather frightening face drawn on in Sharpie
. Basically, like the actual Weeble, you could bat it around and it would always right itself. It wasn't that far off from the real thing, either.
Being a somewhat belligerent
child, I took the slogan as a personal affront, and spent many hours (well, at least twenty minutes] trying to devise ways to MAKE THE DARN THING STAY TIPPED OVER. Gluing it to the table might have worked, but I was caught before the elmer's
had set. Would that I were
still so carefree!
Admittedly not a hugely challenging idea for a toy, but hey.
Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down!
Distracted Father: *calling from the next room* Janie? Janie, did you take my superglue
Slightly Creepy Child: *loudly and sweetly* No, Daddy!
Distracted Father: Huh. *goes to the basement to check his toolbox for the fourth time*
Slightly Creepy Child: *stashes tube of epoxy, glaring at newly-inverted Weeble the entire time* Take that
, you demonic ovoid spawn of hell.

1. An term of endearment for someone who is struggling emotionally, but still functional. May be used self-referentially.
2. To express concern or emotional distress about something, often over which one has no real control. Somewhere in-between whining and venting.
Origin: "Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down," a slogan for an old Hasbro toy.
"I had the crappiest day today and I don't know how tomorrow will be, but I made it through work without fleeing, screaming out into the street.
Aw. Good weeble. ::hug::
Yup. We wobble, but we don't fall down."
"I'm sorry I've been so weebly at you lately.
Don't worry about it! I know you're going through a rough patch. Weeble at me as much as you need to."
