The art of the wedgie has ancient roots. Most historians believe that fabric was first yanked up a butt crack almost immediately following the advent of underpants. Meanwhile, some noted scholars argue that the first wedgie may have been exacted long before that, around the time crotches began to be sewed into loincloths.
No matter where you come down on this debate, you most likely possess a fear of the wedgie that was instilled at an early age. Be it from a sibling, a parent or anyone else you mistakenly thought you could trust, we all learn at some point to watch those lurking around our waistbands.
We were able to track down these photos of people who were not lucky enough to avoid devastating wedgies, and have classified these crack attacks by their proper names. We can only hope the folks pictured here have been able to "dig out," so to speak, and that the same fate does not befall the rear ends of you, our readers.
