I'm convinced that these people are mildly retarded.

Most people from the south are, but their use of "Coke" for everything may stem from the corporate headquarters for Coca Cola being in Atlanta.

Since your name is "IlliniLou" and your loc is "University of Illinois" you really should be calling it pop.

I hate it when people call soda, pop. I don't know why, it is just annoying.

I'm sure you knew how stupid you looked to the rest of the world well before this thread.

Soda, all the way. When I hear people say "pop" I want to break their necks.

This is not true. I've had it in NJ.

Edit: Um, Mr. Pibb, that is.

Default None of the above

Well, not entirely true. having grown up in NJ, I call it soda, but I live in New England, where the generic name is "tonic."

There are also parts of the country where the generic name is "coke" as in "What kind of coke do you want?" "I'll have a ginger ale."

I just find this whole thing to be silly. Was I the only one taught that people say different things to mean the same thing? I had a college roommate make fun of someone else for calling a certain cooking utensil a "pan." WTF?

For what it's worth, I generally just call it a "soft drink", sometimes "soda", almost never "pop" (but I certainly know what it's referring to).

I never say "Coke" unless I'm specifically referring to Coca-Cola and I think it's funny that people do. It's like saying:

"I'm going to McDonalds."

"Which one?"

"Burger King."

Oh well, more power to the Coke marketing machine.

first of all i found it humerous when people for the north were speaking for people in the south, "i think the people in the south call it soda?" haha. second i think this poll is borderlind polltard if you don't include "coke" b/c an entire region of our country calls it that.

at home in texas its "coke," when i lived and went to the school in the midwest it was "pop," when i lived in the northeast it was "soda" and when my grandmother speaks its "soda-pop." then if you get into the really thick country i have heard it called "soda-water." yet you include two options...polltard.

Reason I didn't put coke was because I had no idea idiots just called it Coke. It is not Coke, Coca Cola is Coke damnit. When you say Coke, i refer to the days of when Coca Cola used to make Coke II. anyone remember that? or Clear Pepsi? Also Mr.Pibb will never out taste Dr.Pepper, clear distinction, Dr.Pepper is awesome and Mr.Pibb sucks

Then who would we make fun of? I think we should take all the tolerant people out back and shoot them.
