I was going through a crate of old memorabilia today and came across a box that once held “Dixie Pops”. Apparently they’re some sort of cheesy firework (“WARNING: DO NOT PUT IN MOUTH”), made in China in 1986. The box is empty now, so I can’t tell you exactly what it once contained.
What I want to know is whether the word “pops” is a verb. Because it seems to me that Dixie is going to start poppin’ pretty soon — at least here in the Old Dominion, if Governor Coonman has his druthers. A little poppin’ here and there, both north and south of the James River.
A fun trick! But see side panels for cautions.
