    • 2009 July 12, Susann Cokal, “Bleak Housekeeping”, in New York Times[1]:
      Dickens aficionados will delight in winky references to his novels, as well as to his biography: Jenny Wren of “Our Mutual Friend” lends a nickname to Miss Ricketts; Alfred’s brother’s name is Sydney (as in Carton); and the One and Only’s death has left a “Drood”-like novel unfinished, occasioning wild speculation about its conclusion.

Noun[edit]

winky (plural winkies)

  1. (slang) the penis.
  2. An emoticon or smiley that shows a winking face.
