I'd never want to be tazed...
Closest I've ever been is a coil or sparkplug wire...
Plulled a coil wire when I was a kid off my dirt bike
when it got jamed at WOT...
Not fun...made me shake for 30 min after and the
hair on my head stand straight up...
lol

I remember plastic chairs at work that were a bit electric: if I slid against the chair as I sat in it, its metal parts gave me a shock and an audible spark from static electricity.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chief_constable

A few years here in England, a Chief Constable (of Lancashire, I think) let himself be tasered in front of a television camera. It may have been to stop people from accusing "How would he like to have it done to him?".

The garage doors I install are separated with a thin sheet of foam paper to keep the face of the door from getting scratched up. During the winter when the air is dry when you remove that protective sheet from the door it generates an amazing amount of static electricity. I've got to take a pair of my vice grips and touch the section with them or I'll get zapped. I've seen a bright blue spark jump 1.5 to 2 inches. I hate getting tagged by that should I forget to ground it first.

Today I saw a television report about a biological expedition to Guiana in South America. It showed electric eels. It called it "a living taser". It showed a caiman (a sort of crocodile) "riding the lightning" after it tried to catch an electric eel and the eel objected, including tremors afterwards like a tasered human.
