VerbEdit

popcorn (third-person singular simple present popcorns, present participle popcorning, simple past and past participle popcorned)

  1. To stand up or jump up quickly.
    • 2000, Dale L. Sigler, A Grown-up's Guide to Guinea Pigs, iUniverse, →ISBN, page 58:
      Popcorning behavior is a fun sight—as long as you know what it is. Otherwise, it can scare you. During this action a pig runs around very fast and suddenly leaps straight up in the air, twitching and squeaking. It then lands and takes off again, often in another direction. This activity shows pure joy. Babies start to popcorn when they are about two weeks old or so—they may try it earlier, but they usually fall down instead.
