How... very French *where is that duck-and-run icon?*
–verb (used with object)
1. to bother persistently with petty annoyances; trouble: Don't pester me with your trivial problems.
2. Obsolete. to overcrowd.
[Origin: 1530–40; perh. aph. var. of empester, impester to tangle, encumber (though pester is found earlier than these 2 words) < MF empestrer to hobble, entangle < VL *impāstōriāre to hobble, equiv. to im- im-1 + pāstōri(a) a hobble, n. use of L pāstōrius of a herdsman or shepherd + -āre inf. suffix (see pastor);
I guess the English nicked it from you guys, but I wonder where the hobbling herdsman comes in?
Seriously though, do a thread/poll. I'm sure there's enough creativity in this community to come up with something really cool.
