I'm a black woman from Ohio. My parents came from Kentucky. To call a carbonated soft drink "pop" is quite common in both states, among all races. I believe it's come from an old expression, "soda pop". I realize, however, that the rest of the nation isn't familiar with the term. My sis married a New Yorker who had no clue as to what "pop" was. And I worked in New Jersey for over a year some time ago, I would forget myself and walk into a convenience store and ask for a can of "pop", the clerk would be lost!

Country as hell and lovin' it

BTW---I prefer Cheerwine over Coca-Cola

vickster56 is polite and friendly about it so that's cool and no flames will follow.

The rest of you, though, beware. DaShredda is on the loose.

In the town I came from, white folks called all carbonated beverages "coke" and black folks called them "cold drinks."

I'm gone get mes a coke jus'a soon as'a put this here cow in its pen.

Err... I am redneck enough to ID that as a pig.
2005-09-27 11:23:21 AM  
if you ever call them "buffalo wings" while in buffalo, you will be laughed at.... chicken wings are acceptable... we prefer to call them "wings".

Gold Star for you!

In Canada, they call it "gog".

ogre27620: I thought the headline said "chicken wings and poop"

Me three.

As for pop/coke issue... I use pop with one side of the family because if i ask them to pick up some coke they will get coca-cola and coca-cola only.

I use coke with the other side, because telling them to pick up some coke results in a cornucopia of carbonated beverages.

/primarily swiggs Dr. Pepper
//will only drink Coke if it's in a glass bottle (too much foam in plastic or aluminum)

2005-09-27 11:40:35 AM  
dittybopper, that's cool. I'll have to start using it too, now that I know where it came from.

/don't like soda anyway.

//They call it "pop" in Cleveland. meh.

///"sweet tea"?????? WTH is up with "sweet tea"?????? All my friends from the south call iced tea "sweet tea" and they automatically add sugar to it.

Doesn't anyone just call it a DRINK?

"Welcome to McDonald's, may I take your order?"
"I'll have a number 1, no onions"
"What kind of DRINK would you like with that?"

/uses "Soda" too
//You pop open a SODA
///Pop is a verb and an onomatopoeia at that
////Pop just sounds ghey
2005-09-27 12:10:49 PM  
King_of_the_Cows: Oh, and "escalator" is (or was?) a brand name. When was the last time you took the "moving stairway?"

I like an escalator because they never breake, they just become stairs...

2005-09-27 12:11:17 PM  
"///Pop just sounds ghey"

not "ghey", dag-nabbit! It's COUNTRY !!!
2005-09-27 12:12:57 PM  
Pop is most definitely teh GAY!

I'm here in the state of Washington and everyone calls it farking POP! i mean really! its SODA. NOT POP!

Thanks for the clarification on Heroin. I was wondering too.
2005-09-27 01:13:11 PM  
Coke it is, coke it will remain.

If I want to specify Coca-Cola, as someone else said, I will ask for a Co-cola. Otherwise, I will simply ask for coke and be asked what kind. It's just how it is. I don't make the rules.

///"sweet tea"?????? WTH is up with "sweet tea"?????? All my friends from the south call iced tea "sweet tea" and they automatically add sugar to it.

Comparing the poorly-flavored muddy water that Northerners call "iced tea" to the sweet, sweet nectar that Southerners call "sweet iced tea" or just "sweet tea" is similar to comparing scraped-off engine grease to rocket fuel. We add sugar to your so-called tea to make it bearable.

I wash ma'self with a rag on a stick.
2005-09-27 01:47:48 PM  
wow. mr. shredda would make it about three and one half minutes around me and my backward redneck friends.
2005-09-27 02:01:32 PM  

Yeah, I agree. After minute 4 I'd be tied to the back of a beat up Ford pickup, being dragged down a gravel road while you all throw empty whiskey bottles at street signs and blast banjo music.
2005-09-27 02:19:13 PM  
hmmmm. that really doesnt sound like such a bad thing. really.
2005-09-27 02:21:27 PM  
InflatableJesus: You totally should have enabled voting on that pic.

It also marks the first time DaChedda can claim to be anything other than "untouched". By anyone other than himself, of course.
2005-09-27 02:32:18 PM  

I got a Ford Truck, some rope, and 'dueling banjo's' on a cd...
2005-09-27 02:37:55 PM  
Smart Ass

but do you have it on MIDI?
2005-09-27 02:42:39 PM  
You try Shredda, you really do. In the end, you're just a virginal teenager finding an outlet on line.

/Even if you aren't, it's pretty sad that everyone guesses that.

DaSmegmia is living proof that anal sex shouldn't be used for birth control.

/in case you missed it the first time.

/what KIND of coke you want with that, sphincter boy?
2005-09-27 02:51:11 PM  
If you say "pop", you must sound like Susan from the first Survivor.
If you say "coke", you're a moron. It is not like Kleenex. Maybe if there were other flavors of Kleenex that were totally different looking and tasting. "What kind of coke do you want?" just boggles the mind.
If you say "soda pop", you're pretty damn redundant.

/dang, that was too easy. must be a regional thing.

It's tonic.

It's a generational difference, too. my grandfather usually just called it "Cocola", sometimes "sodie water".

BTW, go ahead and make fun of Southern slang; I guess the Northeast doesn't have any odd slang words. Everyone in NYC, New Jersey, Boston, etc., speaks the Queen's English, right?
2005-09-27 05:36:07 PM  

My grandfather called it cocola, too.

/yous guys wouldn't understand
2005-09-27 05:52:56 PM  
Im I the only one who finds it a little retarded that they arrested a 61 year old woman from florida? Chances are she excaped the home, and was running lose, but if throwing chicken and soda is the worst thing that shes going to do, let it go georgia, let it go.
2005-09-27 06:18:42 PM  
I'll settle the pop/cola debate once and for all: it's called "soda," or "tonic." Anything else makes you sound like a hick.

And we don't have any weird slang words. We speak wicked properly, unless we've bought too much from the packie; of course, some chowderheads can get drunk from nothing stronger than vanilla frappes.
