    Default Okay, weird, weird topic - not for the faint of heart

    Okay, my husband and I were sitting in our kitchen talking about the tomato
    thingy. Florida is now not a state that is exempt from possibility of
    contamination.

    We started talking about the word "tainted" and were wondering how that came
    about. Tainted = E-Coli, Salmonilla. Hmmm. Comes from the nether regions.
    Coincidence? Seriously, we were just wondering. Kind of makes sense....

    Flame retardant suit on.

    1. To affect with or as if with a disease.
    2. To affect with decay or putrefaction; spoil. See Synonyms at
    contaminate.
    3. To corrupt morally.
    4. To affect with a tinge of something reprehensible.
    v.intr.
    To become affected with decay or putrefaction; spoil.
    n.
    1. A moral defect considered as a stain or spot. See Synonyms at stain.
    2. An infecting touch, influence, or tinge.

    I'm curious as to when that particular term slipped into the mainstream
    vernacular. It was always a bit "outside", when I'd heard it in the
    past. Then a couple weeks ago, I ran into it dropped into "Baby Mama"...

    But the meaning as "contaminated" goes back *much* farther.

    err...I don't think so...since tainted is never a noun. You'd never say hey, hand me
    a tainted. It's an adjective at times and a verb at times, but never a noun.

    Wouldn't "a tainted burger" be using "tainted" as an adverb?

    Are you asking about the slang term "taint" as applied to a
    particular human body area? I'm not sure just what you're asking, since
    in with the spoiled-food sense, you mention "nether regions".
