A williwaw is, quite simply, a switch made out of a willow branch that was used to punish children, most prevalent in rural cultures around the turn of the 20th century.

williwaw A material witness to a phenomenon.

If Coffee had a willywaw, he'd not keep it to himself, but then bealblues has been gone for months, too, and Lord knows we need somebody to define that williwaw business.

Williwaw - a comic reaction displayed by one who sees someone he or she has not seen in years just pop up nonchalantly in close proximity to them. In the comics, this may be illustrated by bugged-out eyes, a slack jaw, and a large exclamation point suspended over the head, with the subject in turn suspended several inches above his or her prior position. In animation, a williwaw can be shown by the subject shooting backwards with the face wobbling uncontrollably, accompanied by the rapid repitition of the titular sound:williwawlillywawillywawlilly. (I'm sure you've seen the Looney Tunes guys do this.) To indicate a williwaw in the real world, the subject may do an impression of one or more of the Three Stooges, grab their phone and start tweeting, or just put a wet finger into a light socket.

Williwaw -- A kind of bogeyman in traditional Polish folklore thought to originate in the area of Warsaw. It roams the woods and watersheds looking for unsuspecting young whippersnappers to frighten, warbling a mournful tune whilst wearing a tunic made of Oscar Meyer wienie whistles.
