Must be a Yank, they always put Z's in place of the British S.
ouch. I'll pass the Blame to Noah Webster for that...
and speaking of dictionaries:
NOUN: A sudden vigorous pull; a jerk.
NOUN: 1. A sudden abrupt motion, such as a yank or twist. 2. A
jolting or lurching motion. 3. Physiology A sudden reflexive or
spasmodic muscular movement. 4. jerks Involuntary convulsive twitching
often resulting from excitement. Often used with the. 5. Slang A
foolish, rude, or contemptible person.
Anyway you cut that definition, none are complementary, the brit's
have been calling us jerks for 300 years... and we seem to "ok" with
it, even taking the title on as if it was something cool! They being
the "yank"ers we being the "yank"ees.
What's up with that?
