From Wikipedia’s page on uvula:

The palatine uvula, usually referred to as simply the uvula (play /ˈjuːvjələ/), and colloquially as the “hangy ball,”

Hehehe. Is that really the colloquial term for it? I always thought it was more of a desperate descriptor than an actual unofficial term. Why not ‘dangly thing in the back of your throat’? oh wikipedia. you are an endless source of amusement.

I wonder if I can put that on my resume – “read wikipedia for fun”
