Just imagine that you're sitting on a park bench feeding a few pigeons when a mugger suddenly jumps out to steal your bird seed. As you hear the wailing guitar solo of Jimi Hendrix on your new mp3 player---you suddenly feel some tugging on your seed bag---you pivot off the bench---see the mugger--- and taze him, bro!

You know what a bother it is to carry both your MP3 music player and your Taser gun? Worry no more.

Today at CES, Taser International introduced the Taser MPH -- the first combination hand-held music player and Taser.

The player, which has a 1-GB capacity that can hold about 150 songs, is embedded in a holster that slips on your belt. Feel the need to zap someone and you can unholster the Taser, use the built-in laser pointer to aim, and blam -- a couple of darts carrying 50,000 volts hits your victim.

I hear CES International wants to re-record Mr. Hendrix big hit and call it: "Purple Taze! <snark> It give new meaning to the phrase, "that song was electrifying!" So can anyone Taze you now?

Can you help us out?
