    Zip and Zag

    Hi All,
    The context is "Twenty flame jets zip and zag in complicated sequences creating mesmerizing patterns through 30-metre-high aqua displays"
    what does the expression "Zip and Zag" mean?
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Zip and Zag

    It looks rather strange to me. I would expect either "zig and zag" (or "zigzag") or just "zip".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
