Some paposecos in real life

Popsic is what PauseUnpause and VintageBeef call Bread in Minecraft. It is a corruption of the word papo-seco (literally "dry throat"), which is a type of Portuguese roll. VintageBeef is of Portuguese origin and likes to sprinkle Portuguese terms in his videos. The word was introduced to Pause by Beef while they were exploring an abandoned mineshaft.[1] Pause popularized the word and its spelling, calling it "the greatest word that [he] have ever learned" and even creating a shirt design for the word.[2]
