Great. Now what does it mean? --Yair rand 04:47, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee both pass with the meaning of "one in a pair of nominally different but practically identical things" — feel free to improve my wording. They also seem to have standalone meaning — look at the 2000 quotation for Tweedle-dum. — Beobach 01:47, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
