Wag, subst. a merry droll: Gent. V, 4, 86. LLL V, 2, 108. Wint. I, 2, 66. H4A I, 2, 18. H4A I, 2, 18 H4A I, 2, 18 IV, 2, 55. H4B I, 2, 200. Perhaps also in Ado V, 1, 16: if such a one will smile and stroke his beard, and sorrow, w. (O. Edd. wagge), cry hem, when he should groan; i. e. and if sorrow, a merry droll, will cry hem etc. A passage variously corrected by the commentators on the supposition, that w. must be the homonymous verb.
