Hi!
weep and wipe it sounds like an idiom; is it an idiom?
I saw it in a commercial years ago and I can't remember well about it but, one man made the signal over his face and said something like: now weep and wipe.

Thanks!

    Not in the US. I've never heard "weep and wipe".

    Sometimes commercials "invent" a phrase like "weep and wipe", hoping that you will remember that phrase (and the commercial, and the product).

    If that is the situation, we call "weep and wipe" a "catch phrase" - a slogan that an advertiser invents.

    What was in the commercial, Richard Dick?
    Was it the one that Amren Shahida describes?

    It is not a saying either dojibear or I recognize. Its meaning would depend on what was happening in the commercial.
