People magazine is all about the ‘boozy popsicle‘ today —

watermelon mojito pops‘Boozy’ as in popular popsicle flavors spiked with alcohol — like the watermelon mojito pops garnished with mint pictured at the left.

Looks cool and refreshing, yes…and perhaps a bit lethal for the younger set.

But, I’m sorry.

Every time I hear the phrase ‘boozy popsicle,’ I think —

What a perfect stripper name.

Or maybe even the name of a band (depending on what kind of music they play). Let’s not forget that one, folks.

Fourth obviously meaning “force.”

But what’s not so obvious — who decided the near rhyme “fourth” was worthy of this great franchise?  Why not one of the other available near rhymes for “force,” awesome words like:

  • farce
  • hearse
  • quartz
  • sparse
  • verse

I’m sure we could find fun everyday words and phrases that use these words, too, and shove “force” right in there.  And we could use them on any ol’ day that we pleased.  Phrases like…

  • bedroom force (farce)
  • smoky force (quartz)
  • Bible force (verse)

Yeah…maybe it doesn’t really matter who picked “fourth.”

Happy Thorsday

Now I’m following Twitter users whose sole purpose is to post new #hashtags for people to play — often 7-8 new ones each day. It’s all wordplay and all in good fun….

And I love it.

Any free time I have, I’m hatching new #hashtags. I have new followers — and am following new folks on Twitter — who share my addiction. And when my #hashtags are ‘liked’ or re-tweeted by friends or persons unknown, the game is even more fun.

But I’ve got it under control. I mean —

I did stop to write this blog…right?
