I call it Coke!

When reading old posts on Lindsey Noble's blog (a new treat I discovered this morning) I ran across a post about regional differences in vocabulary, like backpack vs book bag. And Coke vs. all the other incorrect words. The best part. She posted a link to this map:


It shows what word is used county by county in the US. How awesome. From my limited perspective, it seems to be accurate. Shelby County is listed as a Coke county. And that's what it is. Coke!

My old roommate, Sarah (Michigan) and I (Washington) - both say "pop" and we used this map a couple years ago to demonstrate to the world at large that we are RIGHT! because the majority of people say it. :)

Awesome map, Sarah! I want to know what the "other" names are...and what's up with all the variety in Alaska. Thanks for sharing!
