Waltzing Ma-tilde
  The tilde (~) (pronounced /'tɪldɘ/) is a grapheme with several uses. The name of the character comes from Spanish, from the Latin titulus meaning a title or superscription. It was originally written over a letter as a mark of abbreviation, but has since acquired a number of other uses as a diacritic mark or a character in its own right. In the latter capacity (especially in lexicography), a tilde is sometimes confused with a swung dash (usually lengthened to ~) which is used in dictionaries to indicate the omission of a word[1].

Now if I can only figure out how to get my Imac to print one!
