Word of the Day 05/02/15 Busker

Busker (verb)
busk [buhsk]


verb (used without object)
1. Chiefly British. to entertain by dancing, singing, or reciting on the street or in a public place.
2. Canadian. to make a showy or noisy appeal.

Origin: 1850-55; perhaps, if earlier sense was “to make a living by entertaining,” < Polari < Italian buscare to procure, get, gain < Spanish buscar to look for, seek (of disputed orig.)

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
