Who uses "laconic"?

Ever since the dictionary post, I wanted to be aware of when I come upon a word I don't know. Tonight I was watching Jeopardy and one of the answers was laconic. That's a word I've heard of, have never used (which is good since I have no idea what it meant), but if I had to guess, to me laconic sounds like it means sad.

That would be my guess, but my guess would be wrong.

What it means is using few words, being concise. Now that I know what it means, I still don't think I'll ever use it.
