Unpopped popcorn from Hannah

Dear Snooper of Words,

In that book you wrote it says in the section on palindromes that popcorn goes POP when it pops. (Which is a palindrome.) But sometimes popcorn doesn't pop. What is the word for popcorn that doesn't pop? Is it a palindrome too?

I am waiting for your answer.


Dear Hannah,

(Aha! I know why you liked the section on palindromes H A N N A H)

Unpopped popcorn is such a sad thing. It needs a sad word. I don't know if there is a word already for it, but we could make one up.

How about - UNPOPNU.

What do you think?

from your snoopy old friend, The Word you-know-what
