    There’s no explanation, it looks like you spit out a bunch of random words, and then gave it a bad name with a "?" emote.

    I assume you want to know "Do you say "Pop" or "Soda" or "something else"? and it follows the same system for the other 2 "topics".

    I hate the word hoagie----I moved from Brooklyn to the pa sticks as a teenager and all the hicks said things like Pop and Hoagie. It made me feel as tho I was in a hardy boy paperback. We can sneak some Pop down at the olde saw mill if pa does not find us,maybe we will find ole doc pritchards boy down there and he'll let us diddle him.

    This thread is already hilarious! LOL

    I didn't vote on the subs/hoagies one, b/c I couldn't figure when I use the term outside talking about Subway. Then, I realized I call them all sandwiches (I even call Subway sandwiches "sandwiches").

    So, the poll's missing an "other" vote. Forgive me...I can be slow.

    I call soda "soda". I was grown before I realized root beer was soda. In my life, there had always been: soda and root beer. They were completely different entitities.

    Sneakers are tennis shoes. Everyone knows that. LOL

    Running shoes are called sneakers as well. (Basically any athletic shoe without cleats) Squeakers, when wet.

    Sub.

    Coke, anything else is just pop.

    subs if they're real subs. otherwise, sammiches.

    i grew up in california and it was always soda.

    i've lived in texas for 7 years and I now hear myself say, "D'ya want a coke? What kind?"
