i’m possibly about to help you with some childhood closure 😏 (it was for me, anyway).
it concerns lollipops and random holes 🍭 … sounds like a surreal plot for a noel fielding novel 😂.
#tdil the reason why lollipops have a random hole at the end of the stick (the one i mean is in the top piccy).
now, there are a couple of myths surrounding the mysterious hole that we’re going to dispel first 👍🏻.
firstly, some people think that the hole is there so that you don’t choke if you swallow the stick #notideal. not true 🙃 to stop you dying, the entire stick is hollow … not just the end bit.
secondly, this one forever makes me sad, it isn’t there (on most lollies … there are exceptions) to be used as a whistle ☹️. i was always under the impression that every lolly was an opportunity for me to be annoying … turns out that i was wrong (there’s no whistle emoji 😒).
so, the actual reason 🙌🏻 … it turns out that the hole in the end of the stick is a super important part of the lolly’s architecture – without it, your lolly would have no sweet ball on the end! 🙈
the hole allows a small amount of the sweet to form inside the stick, subsequently holding the sweet to the end of the stick; without that super important hole, the sweet would simply slip off #awks.
and there we go! 😬 you can now successfully move on into adulthood with complete lolly based closure … you’re welcome ✌🏻.
right, somehow i dragged this out for a while 😅 so i’m off!
laterz 😘 #tdil
