Pop vs. Coke ~ The General Public Has Spoken
WHAT: Fun | WHEN: June 16, 2008
|I can't tell you how many times I've had this conversation over the years:
"Hey, whaddya say where you come from, pop or Coke?"
"We say, 'You wanna pop?' "
"Down here we say 'Coke'. Pop must be a Midwest thing."
"Huh, dunno. I wonder what people everywhere else call it?"
