Chinese Tuesdays: Nòng

This character isn’t in any of my dictionaries, and is pronounced nòng. These days it has a new meaning, as used by young people online. The character is comprised of the radicals 手 (shǒu), meaning hand, and 上 (shàng) and 下 (xià), which mean up and down respectively. If you picture a teenage boy moving his hand up and down, I'm sure you can guess the meaning.
