So, in IRC and IMs, we often speak about what we call our soft drinks. I recently found this link and decided to make a poll.

How could you say pop? I think calling it pop makes you sound like a 4 year old. Me, and everyone I know, call it soda... 'cause that's what it is. Soda. The soda isle of the gorcery store, bottle of soda, "what kinda soda you got in the fridge?", etc. Technically, they're both right. It's derived from soda-pop, no?

I call it Coke, if it's Coke. Which it usually is. If it's Pepsi, I call it Pepsi. Red Bull I call Red Bull.

Yeah, but what would you say if you asked, "What kinda *blank* do we got in the 'fridge?"

EDIT: I realize the terrible grammar of that sentence, and also find, to my horror, that I say that quite frequently unsure.gif

Drinks, most likely.

I generally refer to it by it's name, or 'fizz'.

The 'other' responses on there are hilarious, though:

- Tubgirl Juice
- dope
- MARDOC SHALL SMITE ALL PEOPLE WHO CALL POP "SODA"!!!!!!!
- MARDOC IS A LACEPANTS AND COULDN'T SMITE HIS WAY OUT OF A WET PAPER BAG. SODA JERK.
- George W Bush is a moron!
- Ryan from Urban Toronto is a twat
- for the person who thinks that florida uses the correct name by calling it COKE because they're so civilized, just like their friends in alabama and mississippi who also call it coke, i dont think the votes from florida should count. they probably meant to vote for Soda but got confused by the unclear ballot and picked Coke accidentaly. the correct term is SODA
- the only time i use pop is when i pop a cap in someones ass for calling it pop....its soda
- Thank you, this is an extremely important topic, and a concern of mine for many years!! This survey will clear up a lot of issues. I use either one depending on who I'm talking to. Soda, for some reason, seems more formal, pop seems like a slang term from where I grew up in Indiana. I think I started using Soda when I moved to Chicago. When our family lived in Hannibal Missouri, the other kids made fun of us when we said "pop". I said, what do you call it? "Sodie-pop or sodie", they would reply. Most people I met when I lived there seemed to confuse "a's" and "i's". For example, they would say Indiani and Missoura. I never quite understood that. If I use Coke it means Coca-cola but no other soft drink. There, I just used soft drink and I didn't even realize it. I never SAY soft drink, I must just use it when I write. Keep up the good work.
- Hey Southerners. Can I offer you a Ford automobile? What kind? Oh, a Mercedes, maybe a Ferrari. To you guys they're all Fords right? Idiots.
- Dear web designer, you should have put a limit on the number of characters that can fit in this field. It would eliminate a bunch of wordy, mostly irrelevant responses. Like this one.
- Toona dan is such a hick and he always says "pop", so i must conclude that everyone who says pop are hicks. Toona's roommate is very gay also, so if your roommate says pop, then the logic suggests that you are gay.
- Hey, why don't you work on a cure for cancer or something else important.
- Ok, this is the FINAL word on this subject "Soda" is club soda, add a sweetener and it becomes a "Soft Drink", "Tonic" contains quinine, "Soda-Pop" is what northern hicks use and shorten to "Pop" which is someone's father and therefore clearly unacceptable. Colas are cola-flavored SOFT DRINKS and are in the civilized world refered to as COKE since Coca-Cola is the first, largest and most enjoyable drink ever produced. In our capitalist culture the originator gets the credit. So go Xerox some paper and put up some Sheetrock while you read this on your PC. Also, as the chart clearly indicates, the most educated and civilized parts of our country (the East and West Coasts) clearly refer to it as Coke. I grew up in south east Florida (the only civilized part of Florida as well as a bigger mixing pot than NY city or the whole of California) and we ask for Coke. What kind of coke? Hmm..I'll have a Sprite, or maybe a Pepsi (if you prefer that ilk, but you still ask for COKE first). The ONLY exception is if you want a Root Beer or and Orange Soda, in which case you ask by brand name "I would like a Sunkist." or "One A&W root beer please." This is cleary the educated way of ordering a SOFT DRINK and it will get you laid too.

Yey for different names between places!

bel's interpretation...

UK its 'pop' or 'fizzy-pop' or occasionally 'fizz' Otherwise its the name os the actual drink ie Lemonade, Tango, Cherryade etc...

USA its more likely to be 'soda' or 'soda-pop' which in the UK would get you soda-water in the pub or cream-soda or a funny look!

Most of the time all Cola drinks get called 'Coke' regardless of if its made by the Coca-Cola company or not.

I've taken to calling carbonated soft drinks 'soda' recently, mainly to annoy people, same as when I refer to my trainers as 'sneakers'

What we gonna debate next, the 'petrol v's gas' one is good, or the american spelling and pronunciation of almost everything if you really want to start a barney!

Then again I'm in Norwich in the UK where the locals virtually speak a diferent languace and we have a place called Wymondham which is pronounced wind-ham so hey, whats in a name!

hmm, either 'fizzy drink' or its brand name. I like Ginger Beer best, and Vanilla Cokeis another. I never see it any mo' but Root Beer was a favorite too.

Never heard any of those terms. I'm probably far too middle-class, I call them soft drinks.

Never, in my entire life, have I EVER heard anyone call soda 'fizzy'. I mean, there are those little tablets you can get, that when you add them to water they make soda, they're called is Fizzies on the box.

But, I do see how most of the time people call soda 'coke', even when it's not Coke. Unless it's Dr. Pepper or something, in which case you call it Dr. Pepper. I'm thinking way too hard about this.

Petrol v. gas just has to do with which country you're from. 'Cept in Maryland, where the hicks on the eastern shore call gas 'oil' and pronounce it 'earl'.

If I had said "Let's get pissed" there wouldn't be anything to MAKE BIG.

And you didn't start the sarcasm tag, thus it doesn't work. It's like putting [/QUOTE] at the end of this message and hoping it works.

Is that really how you think we talk? *Pretends like it isn't*

Coulda made it PISSED, we just say plastered, or drunk, or f***ed up, or sh** faced, but never pissed. 90% of Americans wouldn't know what you were talking about.

And the stereotype of Americans shouldn't be at the mall stuffing our faces with FRIES and CHIPS and SODA. While a small portion of us do dry.gif it's not on top of most of our priority lists.

Unfortunately, though, I don't have much of a defense, since most of us think the stereotype for the British is everyone with white gloves sipping tea in their living rooms.
