    Default How to describe a table which is wiggling using a adj.

    I heard someone said " This table is wolly/wally ." (an adj. starts w/ W)
    because the ground is not level. But I don't know how
    to spell that word. So I couldn't look it up in the dictionary.

    An ad from the 1970's: "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down." :D
