A weapon used by law enforcement and other miscellaneous groups. It may consist of a straight or T-shaped rigid stick, or a collapsible version in both aforementioned forms. They are either made out of steel, wood, or polycarbonate. Contrary to popular belief, batons are NOT made out of rubber, except rarely as in the grip. Common manufacturers are ASP, Monadnock, Fury Tactical, and Smith And Wesson. Some examples are the PR-24, the Monadnock AutoLock, and the ASP 26".

a sport where young-in-shape bodies do hard tricks and manuvers with batons, but make them appear easy so nobody is really interested. The "twirlers" wear way too expensive sparkly costumes in attempt to draw more attention to them then their competitors. Usually suffer from head,fingers, and sometimes face trauma. Pay hundreds of dollars to win a few trophies and hang out with friends. Give good-luck gifts to people they dont even like to be a "good sport". They spend more time practicing or in a gym then they do living normal lives, and usually they love it.
similar to gymnastics or dance.
I practiced for 6 months and so i got a really big trophy at my baton competition!

A girl who gets passed around from guy to guy, whether by choice or simply because she might have daddy issues, like in a relay race.
Yo, so remember that baton Jessica? Well she slept with Josh last night (Adam's roommate) and the week before she hooked up with Josh's little brother. She might even be at Olympic baton status.
