Anybody know what "dixiecup" is? Here is some context:

...he had died crumpled like a dixiecup in an alley.

The text talks about someone who was murdered by having his Adam's apple ripped out ... :eek:

Thanks!

    "Dixie" es una marca comercial.

    La casa Dixie históricamente fabricó unos vasitos de papel que se usaban en las oficinas junto con los botellones de agua para beber.

    Cup = taza, vaso -- Dixie Cup = vasito de papel
