I'm sure regular Pogo game players will recognise this question as it is used as the name of a room in the Egyptian, Phlinx game. It attracted me for some reason, and whenever I play the game, I enter this room. I often sat and pondered the Egyptian meaning of Watusi. So can anybody tell me, Pogo players and non-Pogo players alike... in the ancient Egyptian language... WHAT'S A WATUSI? I'd be very interested to read your responses, true definitions or made-up, humorous ones, and for that reason will + rate all non-abusive and relevant responses. Go for it!:-)

Always thought the watusi was a dance that came out around the time the twist did.

Ha ha ha ha... brilliant answer. There are several meanings to the word Watusi, from different parts of the World. I just wondered about the Egyptian one, as there is a Pogo room named What's A Watusi! lol. I did look it up and found several meanings but the sparkler in the Phillipines is a new one on me and so is your dance, but I'll take your word for it. Brightest Blessings to you, my friend and thank you for your response.

well, i don't what that means in egypt, but certainly back in the philippines, i remember when i was young, it is a type of sparkler used every new year's eve or new year's day itself.

Yes, so I believe. How strange they should call a sparkler a Watusi. I wonder how it came to be called that? Thank you for your response MLGB and Brightest Blessings.
