This is a real thing according to the European Journal of Orthodontics:
In orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning, an accurate antero-posterior measurement of jaw relationships is critically important. Previously described angular and linear measurements can be inaccurate because of their dependency on various factors. The purpose of this study was to introduce a new cephalometric measurement, named the W angle, to assess the sagittal relationship between maxilla and mandible with accuracy and reproducibility.

chitownmike: That's a stupid word

I beg to differe. It's already two good words and I can imagine many more:

intransitive verb

To obtain or achieve by cleverness or deceit, especially in persuading someone.

To extricate oneself by subtle or indirect means, as from difficulty; wriggle.

Come to thhink of it, both those meannings apply peculiarly to Donald Trump.

We need more meaning of wangle, stat.
