#SoCS April 6/19

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fab.” Use it as a word or find a word beginning with “fab.” As always, use any way you’d like. Have fun!

The first thing that came to mind when I saw the prompt was icecream!

I don’t know if you have these anywhere other than the UK but here we have ice lollies called Fab!

They are a mix of strawberry and vanilla ice, dipped in chocolate and sprinkles!

Have you had one?

I must admit I am not a big fan, but the kids love them!

Fab lollies are older than me… introduced by Lyons in 1967, to coincide with the popularity of Thunderbirds, alongside another lolly called Zoom which was more rocket shaped for the boys… Apparently girls would have prefered the ‘feminine’ shape of a Fab, rather than a Zoom lolly…

Personally, the ice lolly is more my thing!

    I’d prefer the Zoom one, too! We have ‘Bomb Pops’ which are not much unlike Zoom and I like them.

    No, we don’t have those but similar ones in the shape and colors. The translation is “rocket”. I am not surprised, ice cream came to your mind first… lol!

    Very well solved prompt! I am not wondering about your preference for the ice lolly “Fab”, Sis! You are fabulous, are yourself hot enough. Lol Best wishes for a sunny weekend! Michael

    We don’t have them here but I’d try one … at least once to decide … and maybe another to be sure … cuz I am sure I’d like them 🙂

    I’ve never tried either version – but I’d prefer the rocket one, without the chocolate. Way to soar in a fab way with the prompt for the day! Happy Saturday to you!

    We don’t have them here in the states but I think I’d like one. I like sprinkles. Good job!

    International Rescues’ radio code “F-A-B”, meaning “message received and understood”, didn’t stand for anything, it was just supposed to sound “hip”. In fact, when asked what it stood for, Gerry Anderson once replied, with some bemusement, “Fab,” as though it were obvious.

    In the 60’s the buzz-word was “fabulous”. This was shortened to FAB and used simply as a call sign like ‘Roger’ or ‘Ten-Four’ to acknowledge received instructions. If it was an acronym, then the best suggestion we’ve heard for a potential meaning is “Fully Acknowledged Broadcast”

    Both the above were garnered from the internet – I hereby acknowledge their provenance – and declare they are both ‘fab!’ G:)

    We had something similar to the Zoom called a Bomb pop, same shape, red, white and blue.
