ROROLAS WITH RECIPE FOR ROLLED LIVER FRITTERS

(fr rorro), 1. sucking child, tiny child, baby. 2. “ro ro ro” a sound in Spanish to put the baby to sleep. 3. roly poly, an  alteration and duplication of “roll,” as rolled liver fritters. Roly poly sounds better than “lullaby liver fritters.” See arullar.  [ES: Lord-Williams. “arullar “ Nov 24, 11; Nola 1989:xlii-4].
