She Licked Me Like A Lollipop

2008: The Year of The Lollipop?

Ok, well, maybe not, but Lil' Wayne's smash hit single "Lollipop" was everywhere in '08. I'd go as far as saying it was the biggest single of the year, but you can say "Whatever You Like." This made me think about where exactly did the term "Lollipop" come from. Well when I decided to research the origins of ther term "Lollipop" I chose to consult with my favorite linguist, Marina Orlova.

Who knew?

Notice how I found a way to tie Lil' Wayne to Marina Orlova? Haha, once again it all comes full-circle.
