- n. Plural form of herkie.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I was close enough to see by then, a glorious sight: the Tigers hugging one another on the field, the cheerleaders jumping and screaming and doing herkies like mad, the Chaffey fans in a frenzy.
One humanity-loving reader also took the time to inform us he suspects we are "two former high school cheerleaders who now have an inferiority complex," a flattering if inaccurate assumption that we were once capable of killer herkies and immense pep.
