Past Words of the Day

An act first practiced at Brookfield Central High School in the mid-1990s. Several students from the Milwaukee suburb of Brookfield, being of a gentle disposition, sought a safer and more sanitary form of humiliation than the traditional swirlie, which involves holding someone's head in a toilet and then flushing. The new "Brookfield swirlie" consisted of holding the victim's head down on the surface of a water fountain (a water fountain of course being known as a "bubbler" to some but not all Wisconsinites) so that the fountain water shoots into the ear of the victim. In this era at Brookfield Central, a few girls practiced this more genteel "swirlie" (boys are far more likely than girls to practice the more dangerous traditional swirlie). Nevertheless, an undesired side-effect of the Brookfield swirlie was that the act was more public and in some ways riskier than the traditional toilet-based variety.
