A sucker is part of the population that increases by one every minute. A lollipop is candy.

Oh, I'd rather suck on a lemon drop
Than try my luck with a lollipop
'Cuz a lollipop I always drop and it gets all over icky.

Oh, it makes me sick the way it smears
And gets all over my hair and ears
With a jelly bean I'm always clean
With a lollipop all icky.

I've tried, and tried, but still I can't find
A lollipop that's halfway refined...

So... I'd...
rather suck on a lemon drop
Than try my luck with a lollipop
'Cuz a lollipop I always drop and it gets all over icky.
Icky,
Icky Icky Icky BLEAGH!!!!

Those words refer to two different things - they are not two words for the same thing, so I cannot choose between them.

No, you didn't. But knowing celticmom1967, she meant the question in the same vein as soda vs. pop.

Indeed. They are terms that refer to the same type of item in some folks verbiage. Just like soda vs. pop that could also be two words that are not for the same thing if you think of pop as a slap or punch. Some folks DO use the above words interchangeably; personally I think it is regional like the soda vs. pop choice and using the term coke for any carbonated beverage in the south.

Where I am from sucker & lollipop are interchangeable. It actually never occurred to me that someone wouldn't think of them as such! (Not that it matters for Question of the Day, of course. Which, after all, is the beauty of ? of the Day... )

I think it's a matter of shape. Flat ones are lollipops, spherical ones are suckers.

But aren't all day suckers usually flat?
