…here’s your chance to find out!
“Taser” was the “hot word” blog entry today over at Dictionary.com, and I freely admit that I had no idea where where the word came from. I find the origin delightful, and thought some of you might be interested. Of course, the use of the Taser (such as on individuals protesting Senator Kerry of Massachusetts, to name a famous case) has given us a new verb: “to tase.” Things certainly find their way into the English language through some interesting routes!
Try to figure it out if you can. (Some of you, for instance, know the origin of the word “laser.” Might it be similar?) Then, when you’ve given up, head out there: Origin of the word “Taser.”
