pumDI' rutlh 
when the wheel falls 
[i.e. "by that time", "by then" (idiom)] (st.k 11/1999)

(Lieven, 11/16/2014 < qepHom 2014):  "And a [computer] mouse is a {'eQway'} (not to be confused, Maltz was quick to point out, with {'eQway} "belly button"). If the {'eQway'} has a wheel, that's a {rutlhHom}. To "click" one of the buttons is to {'uy} "press down" (even though the action is really to press down and then release).

PUN: "rut"?
