Wow, radical new hair style, Tiffany!
The latest such sign is that tasers – those personal stun guns that zap an assailant with enough electricity to make him resemble a twitching skeleton – are now available in pink, red and leopard, with holsters that double as MP3 music players.
I see problems in mixing personal protection with entertainment. It’s dark, you’ve had some drinks, you’re walking home with a taser in your holster, dancing to the music. Your cell phone rings, you mistakenly clap the taser to your ear and fumble for the talk button. What could possibly go wrong?
