20 Dec 2008 The Model 271
Posted at 16:22h in Uncategorized
I’m always interested one term can mean different things – polysemy – and now we have the Model 271 in the news. The Model 271 is the type of shoe that was thrown at our President as a sign of disrespect of him and of our country.
Interestingly, the Model 271 is also:
- A baseball bat (glad it wasn’t one of these)
- A screening efficiency tester (what ever that is)
- RS-232 fiber optic driver (RS-232 over fiber? who knew!)
- A nuclear area monitor (I really don’t want to know why)
- A sewing machine (very cute one too)
How many Model 271’s do you know of?
