Soda Vs. Pop

This arguement has been going around the blogosphere for a long, long time. I remember seeing many a post about it. What do you call soft drinks? Is it soda, pop, coke, etc. This arguement has even gone on outside the blogosphere. I know many of my friends and I have had this debate.

Someone has taken this debate to a new level and actually did a survey to find out. Then they made a map based on the answers. Finally we have the Soda Vs. Pop map.

Click to enlarge.

They also have a breakdown on to how the map can be read over at Strange Maps. Looking at this map I have to conclude pop is the most used term!

It's Coke dangit.

That was dang cool.

And it is 'drink.' Not Pop, not soda, not coke.

"You want a drink?"

"Yes. Whatcha got?"

"I got coke, pepsi, diet coke, dr. pepper, and tea."

Now- the tea careful- if you like it sweet, you better tell them. And vice versa.

A "drink" is alcohol.

"Wanna drink?" is never asked by someone who's *not* drinking booze of one sort or other, but "Wanna soda (or tea, coffee, etc.)?" is asked by folks who are *not* drinking.

Uhh... yeah!
