The Word on the Street Is . . . Pogo

 

Tack on the word stick and for most Western Canadians, this is a toy you bounce around on until the obnoxious squeaking drives your parents crazy and they take it away.

In Quebec, it’s what I grew up calling a corn dog.

Warning: Google’s translation of corn dog as chien de maïs is just so wrong—but the image it brings to mind is quite amusing.
