Well the lads over at Foil Arms and Hog have been on the road lately – including a show in Ottawa (sigh) – but they updated this week. Someone let Granny out of the house again and she’s been up to her old tricks.
The word for May 9th is:
Shoplifting /ˈSHäpˌliftiNG/: [noun]
The criminal action of stealing goods from a store while pretending to be a customer.
1670s, from shop (n.) + agent noun of lift (v.). Also in same sense shop-lift (1670s); shop-thief. Both root words seem to have Norse origins.
