Someone thinks they found out what ‘Tag’ stands for and the internet melted
You’ll never run after someone shouting ‘Tag’ in quite the same way again.
How old were you when you found out that the game TAG stands for touch and go? Because I was today years old

You what? ‘Touch and go’? Seriously?
WHAT? Mind blown. I never knew this.

Pfft. Hell, I learned all about that nearly…ten seconds ago.
For the first time in my life.
I'm sixty years old.

Ooh. Me too.
Waaaaait a minute. We can’t *all* have missed this. It’s not a thing. It’s just a handy coincidental thingy. Right?

Except lots of people thought it was one of these.
Sounds like a back-ronym

It's called tag because you tag each other ffs. Kids don't make up games with acronyms. https://t.co/41MvTe1I2q

Yeah, whatever, dude. We prefer this person.
How old were when you found out the game TAG is perhaps a variation of Scottish tig "touch, tap" (1721), probably an alteration of Middle English tek "touch, tap" https://t.co/Y6uBPfd1Oe
