  1. Don’t you have editors? And isn’t it their responsibility to spare us cheap puns like ‘pawpawpopular’?
  2. This isn’t really a worthwhile piece. OK, it tells us there’s a pawpaw festival, which means that it;s very much like (as the author hastens to prove) every other single-item festival anywhere else. We learn nothing about the pawpaw; its nutritional or commercial value, if any; why it seems not to have become popular elsewhere. In short, this is a school-newspaper piece.

it’s ‘pawpawpular’*, bill.

I, for one, am pawpawsitively inspired.
