Verb meaning to go, leave, or escape promptly. Usually issued as a verbal command when either (1) there is a small timeframe available to perform the action, or (2) the speaker has an insatiable urge to perform the action.
Originated from the often quickly pronounced phrase, "Let's go" as its verbal sound resembles the phrase, "Ts'go". This verbal mispronunciation was then matched with its closest sounding counterpart, the word, "Scones". Historians cannot pinpoint the true region where the slang term originated, but some argue it was first used by Amazonian tribal chiefs in the 16th century, when the concept of escaping quickly was essential due to their vulnerability to the harsh jungle environment.
Regardless of its origination, it is a term used around the world, typically by college-age Americans, and has recently been linked to a cure for childhood obesity and testicular cancer.
