“It was so cold that the cops were tasering themselves”

"It was so cold that the cops were tasering themselves” is a joke that is sometimes said about extremely cold weather. “It was so cold...the cops were tasering themselves” was posted on the Athropolis blog on November 24, 2009.


Wikipedia: Taser
A Taser is a brand of electroshock weapon sold by Axon. The shooting stun guns fire two small dart-like electrodes, which stay connected to the main unit by conductors, to deliver electric current to disrupt voluntary control of muscles causing “neuromuscular incapacitation”. Someone struck by a Taser may experience pain and over-stimulation of sensory nerves and motor nerves, resulting in strong involuntary long muscle contractions. The force applied is therefore proportional to the strength of the person receiving the shock rather than the strength of the police officer. Taser darts can incapacitate, not just cause pain compliance, and are thus preferred by some law enforcement over non-Taser stun guns and other electronic control weapons, which, like a Taser when used solely in “Drive Stun” mode, can only do the latter.
