Paddle Pops

More proof that everything is upside-down in Australia, as good old Popsicles become Paddle Pops.

Also, as in our previous entry on Gaytime Raspberry Roughs, I could easily imagine someone getting more than they bargained for when they requested a "paddle pop," especially if you went into a sketchy corner grocery store and asked for the flavor known as "dragon popper" and got some amyl nitrate instead.

Orange, apple and grape are not flavors I would expect to compliment each other.

I like being paddled and it often makes me pop. A prize after is much appreciated.

Why not KDP, you eat lifesavers don't you?

I admit that I never developed a sweet tooth, Patty. If I bought a roll of Lifesavers, I would have them so long that they would get all gummy and stuck together before I finished the roll.

I don't think that is a variety pack of pops. That box cover looks like a single pop has all three flavors bound into one.

That brand (swirly heart) changes names more often than I change sox! Every county we get into sells that brand but, always, under a different name!

I think you meant, amyl nitrite, not amyl nitrate.

D'oh! Thanks for the correction, Siggy.
