If the sun was called Poppy Seed, things would be different — that’s for sure.
Your mother might warn you to take the “poppy seed-screen” with you before you went to the beach. If you didn’t, you’d probably get a “poppy seed burn” — which sounds horrific when you really think about it. Classic songs would suddenly have new song titles like “Here Comes the Poppy Seed” and “Poppy Seed-shiny Day.” People would be confused when others told them not to look directly into the poppy seed or risk going blind.
Scientists would freak out all human beings by predicting the day when THE poppy seed would explode and destroy Earth.
Humans would quickly decide they’d rather go out and frolic on a cloudy day, simply based on the fact that no one would want to go play outside on a poppy-seedy day. Fans of the band Midnight Oil would probably no longer be interested in listening to their awesome CD, “Earth and Poppy Seed and Moon.” And no one (and I mean no one) would want to “run to the poppy seed.”
Probably not a good idea if the sun was called “poppy seed.”
