Yeah, as someone who played extensively both on and off the playground, I don't think acronyms were that big back then.

It's short for "Tag! You're it!" right? as in I have tagged you as the person who is it, and now you have to tag someone else to tranfer the it status.

edit: so slow

the game is hundreds of years old too. no need for acronyms in a time when most people couldn't read or write.

The game is older than the King James Bible?

I think I might be setting myself up for a don-don about how long it actually took the English speaking world to become literate (or the cultural origins of tag) and if so I welcome it

The game, and the name 'Tick', go back at least to the early seventeenth century, when they first enter the written record in Britain.

The book "Swiss Family Robinson" isn't about a family called Robinson but is about "The Swiss Family (version of) Robinson (Crusoe)"

re: tag

perhaps a variation of Scottish tig "touch, tap" (1721), probably an alteration of Middle English tek "touch, tap"


we called it "tig" growing up (in Ireland)

Such is effectively a contraction of so and much

Edit: false don! Apparently from the German solch for so alike, whereas much is probably Latin

Ok but suck is totally a contraction of suction and fuck.


it is though.


People got tired of saying "suction fuck my dick" and suck was born.
