Thanks for a great season, Pick of the Week fans...see you next year at Planet Magic in Denmark, WI!
Red flag raised on their site...is "respondants" supposed to be spelled with an "a?" Apparently not.(Dictionary.com)
And I call bullsh*t on the eastern Wisconsin results. NOBODY up here says "soda." It's "pop," dammit! (Otherwise, how could Random Lake's very own Jolly Good brand ever do the "Jolly Good puts the pop in Wisconsin" jingle?)
Originally posted by DJ RanIt's also important to note the age breakdowns, you know, for next time. Native New Englanders 50 and older are as likely to call it "tonic" as anything else.
Absolutely. Last time I was in the world's largest retirement communtity (aka Waltham) there was tonic everywhere.
"He is the most overrated piece of crap in the league. He bitched and whined after he got his ass beaten in New England last year, so the NFL changed the rules. Then he got his ass beaten in New England again. Every year he's the top MVP candidate. Every year he's supposed to be the best. Every year he's going to carry the Colts to the Super Bowl. And every single year he goes to New England and gets his ass beaten. And his brother's a whiny little bitch." -A friend of mine, on Peyton Manning
What they need to do is throw out a bunch of the other answers. If you look at Wisconsin's answers, for example, http://www.popvssoda.com/stats/WI.html . There are a lot of people there whos answers should be thrown out. Like the 6 people who said "Beer." Or everyone else who gives more than a three word answer.
NOTE: The above post makes no sense. We apologize for the inconvenience.
You should visit the site and read some of the hilarious "Other" responses for your state. Here are some alternatives in Michigan:
“Samsonite” “Dan Woloz’s Penis” “Heroinjunksex” “FIZZWIZZLE !!!!!” “pop is like supper too much little house on the prarie” [WTF???] “Jared’s ass lava”
And 3 people said “vagina”. Sex must be pretty painful for these miscreants.
GREAT. IF YOU COULD ONLY SAY THE SAME ABOUT YOUR FLIPPIN' FANS. "As a whole our team has been pretty modest in victory and respectful of the opposition, especially the Yankees, and focus on what we're having to do. If there's anything personal, I'm sure it's just a blip and it will pass. But I know from knowing our guys that they're very, very respectful of the Yankees and what they've accomplished." - Red Sox GM Theo Epstein
Here's a question for New Englanders and West Coast folks. If you call pop, soda; what do you call soda since pop is soda? Middle America soda as in a milkshake with soda water and ice cream on top, popular with the World War2 generation, but it's hard as hell to find now.
I am a New Englander who relocated to the West Coast, and what I once called "soda", I now call "pop". I also use "chowder" instead of "chowdah". I DO still say "wicked", as in "wicked awesome", liberally in conversation.

Carbonated water or soda water is what I have heard them use. When slumming...
One of the hardest parts of relocating to St. Louis is 1) having to order Sierra Mist everywhere because almost everybody carries Pepsi products instead of Coke and 2) hearing people say pop instead of soda (or even Coke).
Also, I've always heard seltzer, soda water, or carbonated water.
I actually gave notice this week to my job as Director of Ops at a Graphic Design firm that I've been at for 10 years. It's an awesome feeling to leave for a new career in a new field (Investment Banking)
