Hi Guys - I want to understand the poem "Jinglejangle" by Haryette Mullen. I`d really appreciate any kind of help.
In the poem, several persons, places & expressions are mentioned -unfortunately, only a few sound familiar to me. What I`m interested in, in particular:
Which of these person- / place- names & expressions are commonly used in the US?
Which of the nicknames refer to real persons - which ones are used as collocations or in an idiomatic way in everyday language?
Which (brand)names do actually exist? Which word-combos were probably made up by the author?
Thank you in advance :)
