Wild Wild West - What's a Tank?
When the bad guy introduces his tank-like vehicle, he does call it a "tank". That's a slipup.
The reason it is now commonly known as a tank is when the British created the tank in the first world war, the project was so Top Secret that the people building the vehicle thought they were building a big water tank to carry water from one place to another. The name has stayed the same since.
