"Pop-bellied" for "pot-bellied"

A truly impressive pot belly looks like it’s going to pop. Examples:

I bet you if the truth was known, there is more pollution of our water ways caused by the pop bellied, beer drinking, whiskey guzzling, tournamant throwing fisherman out there than there is the power washers.

Myth: The main population of Africa is comprised of poor, malnutrition, pop-bellied, children and adults with AIDS dancing in the streets in loincloths.

Personally for example I don’t care if they are overweight , flat breasted , pop bellied and bold legged , as long as they have a cute face , its an extra weakness that has also tended to keep me single .
