winnie the pooh ping pong meme. they call it ping pong, they call it table tennis, they call it wif waf

Keen players will love this one, especially those outside of the US. We never call the sport ping pong, only table tennis. To us, “ping pong” dumbs the sport down. The name does originate from the sound the ball produces after all.

As for wiff waff (or whiff-whaff), it’s an archaic term for the sport that sounds even more ridiculous.
