People magazine is all about the ‘boozy popsicle‘ today —
‘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.
It’s a keeper.

Today the truly cool will greet you with cries of “May the fourth be with you” to celebrate Star Wars Day.
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:
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.”
