Benevolent Misanthrope: Snapper Carr: Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: WTF is pop?

[i.imgur.com image 850x508]

They forgot "Dope".  As in, "Hey, hand me a Dope."  I kid you not, that's the word my grandmother and her siblings used in Middle Georgia (think Middle Earth, with rednecks in place of hobbits).  I've also heard of it in other areas of the South (the Virginia Piedmont, Coastal North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina).


The last time I was unfortunate enough to get dragged into a Cici's, I heard a particularly mulletacious mother ask her carnal participation trophy, "Do you wont tay, or do you wont drank?"

And the rat-tail-adorned germ incubator said, "I wont drank, muh-muh."

"Wut kinda drank?"

"Co-co-a!"

jfarkinB: Psycat: Cola-based beverages are for the Pod People (TM), Mountain Dew is for aspiring meth heads, and Dr Pepper is for the hipsters who *think* they're cooler than the coke heads...

And which drink was it, again, that's for the people who categorize others and bolster their own superiority based on what kind of carbonated sugar water they choose?

/If you say pop you are an alien to me.

When people say "soda", it makes me think of Arm & Hammer baking SODA in a glass of water. BLEAGHH!

Pop is a verb, not a noun.  But if you use carbonated beverages as a mixer, they become more pop-u-lars-ulrich
