Kool-Aid's Jug o' Fun

Anything else you want to know, just ask. I promise I'm not quite like anyone else you've ever met...

The Invisible Borders That Define American Culture

One of the clearest regional differences in the U.S. can found by tracking the words people use to refer to soft drinks, which is in fact the map you saw at the top of this story. Pop or soda, or even Coke, these small linguistic differences are not as small as we might think. While “soda” commands the Northeast and West Coast (green) and “pop” is in between (black), “Coke” reigns in the south (turquoise). These small distinctions can often act as touchstones for larger cultural differences.

Wait…some Americans don’t call it soda?…

Nope. I live in New York and whenever I go to Ohio to visit my Grandma, I hear it called pop. It’s hilarious to me. Even sometimes my dad (who’s also from Ohio, that’s his mom I mentioned) will drop back into his roots and say pop.

Lol. Because it’s called ‘Pop’

Lol. Because some people are too dumb to understand that the product is made from SODA water and syrup. Therefore, it is SODA, or Soda Pop at the most. Calling it “pop” is just retarded. That is all.
