MILITARY 

A long tubular rocket launcher developed by the US Army during World War 2 as a one man recoil-less anti-tank weapon.

The original bazooka (BZK) fired 2.36-inch in diameter shells that were useless against larger tanks, which required bigger shells with more oompf. The term has been genericised to encompass any shoulder-launched missile.

MOLECULAR BIOLOGY

A synonym for the gene PARD3*.

VOX POPULI

A slang term for massive and elongated breasts

Note: All popular uses of the word BZKs are based on physical similarities (often only in the eye of the original beholder) to the highly portable rocket launcher, which in turn was named after a type of kazoo, a musical instrument with a trombone-like slide popularised by a US comedian in the 1930s
