"Busy, busy, busy" (Americans' love of joining associations) by Cullen Murphy. <CompuServe Reference # A15415780> ("Larry Kahn, of the North American Tiddlywinks Association, in Silver Spring, Maryland, explains that most of the 100 dues-paying "winkers" in his group are men, and that most have a background in mathematics or computers. In the United States major tiddlywinks tournaments are held four or five times a year. NATwA has a sister organization, known as ETwA, in England; of English winkers Kahn observes, "They're even nerdier than we are." Like participants in many other sports and games, winkers have developed a distinctive jargon. They may say, for instance, "I can't pot my nurdled wink, so I'll piddle you free and you can boondock a red." Tiddlywinks apparently enjoyed something of an efflorescence in the United States in the late 1960s and the 1970s, after which it entered a period of mild decline. Kahn blames this on the nation's having experienced a time of cynical economic opportunism and creeping spiritual discontent, which together eroded the bedrock of silliness upon which the edifice of tiddlywinks is erected. Or so I inferred. Actually, what he said when asked about the cause of the decline was simply, "Reagan." ")
