Angloromani[edit]

On the English Wikipedia, it says that “lollipop” comes from Angloromani for candy apple. I'll look into it and I hope that you do too.--RayquazaDialgaWeird2210 18:35, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Omission?[edit]

Isn't "lollipop" also a slang term for the result when you add, onto the roof of a straight-sided building that had no setbacks before you started, a tower of a somewhat-smaller (or much-smaller) cross-section, perhaps in the center of the roof (set back on all sides) but not necessarily so? The top-right corner of the photo below is a building's facade. Moving along the top edge from that corner you get to a stripe of sky. The next thing to the left of that sky is the office-tower that was added to the roof of Saks Fifth Avenue long after the original building was finished.

It seems to be at the back of the roof rather than center. Isn't such a structure referred to as a "lollipop"? If so that ussage is missing from this disambiguation-page.69.86.131.90 (talk) 22:53, 12 October 2012 (UTC)Christopher L. Simpson
