as a noun, you are a primitive weapon, such as a morning star
as a verb, you are waving your arms around erratically
and in a phrase "flailing your arms" your limbs move erratically


I can't tie it in with the title (unless an ancient William is associated with the weapon, which I couldn't find) or the tip.

  • $\begingroup$ Correct! Want to specifically explain the "Balls" part, loved that one! Also, Wallace... $\endgroup$ Jan 27, 2020 at 16:13
