I looked at the documentation for `x-popup-menu':

> Pop up a deck-of-cards menu and return user’s selection.

<C-f2>, as defined above, would only return the user's selection
without executing it. For example, when selecting Help > Emacs
Tutorial, the following is returned:

> (help-menu emacs-tutorial)

I'm not sure on how you'd go about executing that, but I'm sure
there's a way.
