Today's Vocabulary Encore



Blow Pop:  1. (n)  A candy, not a command.




NOTE:  I don't like to do these a whole lot.  Definitely not two days in a row.  But, I saw a box of these when I made a rest stop on the Connecticut Turnpike while driving home from the Native American Casino (where I-as predicted-lost my ass in wampum).  If you giggle, too, congratulations! Your mind works the same way as mine does.  
Off to read your blogs now......

  1. Apparently so.

    Correction: I don't giggle, I chuckle.

  2. A chuckle is MUCH better than a 'titter.' Unless you're faced with TWO titters.

  3. I saw some sweets called Spunk in Germany, it's a lot funnier in England.

  4. @Tony: Spunk. Now that's funny! Almost as funny as what they call cat food in Iceland: Pussi.
    @Gorilla: Oops, sorry. A cherry blow pop is a lollipop with a bubble gum center. Ewwww......... Give me a Snickers or a Twix anytime.

  6. Oh my!I bet he didn't get paid nearly enough to put that on. If he did it for free, I worry for his future.

  8. Al, because of you I cannot listen to Come on Eileen anymore. Now I can't look at Blow Pops either, much less slide one along my tongue.
    Good thing I still love ya.

  10. I think I own a wall in both Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun. Lord knows I've spent many days and mucho dollars in both!

  11. @Yeamie: Trust me, you'll never look at them the same way.
    @Ruth: I actually copied the picture from their website. I wonder if they noticed his right hand, while probably "officially" is pointing at "cherry," looks to me like he's pointing at his crotch.
    @Jessica: I really think there's something screwy in my head that I look at things in this way as often as I do.
    @Robyn: That Come On Eileen is really catchy, huh?
    @Sub-Radar-Mike: The non-English speaker at the rest stop gift shop probably was wondering why I was laughing.
    @Barb: I saw you listed as a major contributor. Right alongside the Penwasser family.

  12. Yup - I giggled. But it wasn't the name of the candy that did it for me, it was the expression on that poor schmuck's face.

  13. @Kid: I know. Life just ain't fair.
    @Anthony: Better than CC (Chortling Creepily).
    @Robyn: I do what I can.
    @Kara: A look which says, "Hey, it's a job."

  19. Blow Pop: 1. (n) A candy, not a command
    Damn you Penwassar, you’ve just ruined my whole “sit on my lap and let’s talk about the first thing that pops up*” routine - at which point I would (or should that be wood) hand them a Blow pop – but now it is out there, that it is not a command but a candy I’m going to need a whole new game plan …

    * Please note that offer is not open to you or anyone else other than Mrs B

    P.S. This post probably should have been removed by the author

  20. @Mama Spaghetti: It's a mind meld thing.
    @Laila: I'm thinking the creators of the candy more than likely had a smart-ass employee.
    @BL: And I didn't even mention Almond Joy and its eunuch brother, Mounds.
