Another enjoyable, informative story.


My son didn't understand why lollipops were called "suckers." "You don't suck them," he said, "You lick them. They should be called "lick-ers." And, yes, he loudly demanded a "lick-er" in the grocery store. Even at 3-years-old, I think he knew it was funny.

Crossing guards in the U.K. are called "lollypop ladies" – because the stop signs they hold resemble lollypops.

As a copywriter for the big toy company, I worked on the See's Barbie® dolls. We re-created a mini store counter for the package.
