Pop! | Pastor Chuck Salvo | 12.6.23 | Wednesday | On Fire Christian Church


  1. Pop! Goes the Weasel” is a traditional English-language nursery rhyme and singing game.
    1. Have you ever heard the term “when it rains, it pours”? Well, that is the likely meaning to “Pop! Goes the Weasel.” Let us explain.A spinner’s weasel consists of a wheel that is revolved by the spinner to measure off thread or yarn after it has been produced on the spinning wheel. The weasel is usually built so that the circumference is six feet so that 40 revolutions produce 80 yards of yarn. It has wooden gears inside and a cam, designed to cause a popping sound after the 40th revolution, indicating to the spinner that the work or measurement is done. But in this case, the “popping” is likely not a good thing. If we read back to the verses, so many bad things are going on. Someone is sick, money has to be spent on cheap food, and the like. So, with all these tasks done, what happens next? The wheel breaks! POP!Or, if you want to be more generous, the reading could indicate that in order to afford all these things in life—food, medicine—one needs work, work, work. Get to spinning! Pop! Pop! Pop!The “monkey” referenced is often thought of as money—as in, “monkey on your back.” Therefore, the job of making money is “chasing” you—so, you have to work! And even when you do, things can still go wrong. Pop! Pop! Pop!
