While the word "taser" sounds a bit like someone made it up because it sounded rather sci fi, there's actually an interesting acronym-related story behind the electric shock weapon's name.

The word actually stands for "Thomas A Swift Electric Rifle", after the inventor, Jack Cover, decided in 1974 to name it after his favorite children’s book character - Tom Swift.

Now, if YOU could decide what TASER stood for, what would it... well... stand for?

Send in your ACROs by Saturday night....

Two Acros, just for me...
if I get another, then I'll have ...
... More!


Sorry I watched Private Eyes recently, and I was inspired by the 'rhymes' in this classic gem.
