After seeing a few posts about a badge for posting a question only for yesterday, I had a quick look at all the badges and seen one for 'Whino' for the drinks category. Should it not be 'Wino' or is for folk who drink and mump a lot?

Like you I thought that it was wino.

But -

whino Noun singular. Whinoes noun plural.

1. a whino is a type of drunk, usually a hobo, who has a preference for cheap wines over the vodkas and whiskeys etc. Especially known for 'hiding' their drink of choice in a paper bag.
john was once a successful programmer before the dot bomb era, now he's just another whino sucking his life away one bottle at a time.

Question Author
I'd rather trust Chambers Dictionary than the Urban Dictionary and no doubt to some folk, 'whino' and 'wino' sound the same but 'whino' makes no sense.

it was probably intended for posters in News.
