“Regional Terms for
Carbonated Beverages”

[xkcd, February 7, 2019. Click for a larger view. Original here.]

The mouseover text reads “There’s one person in Missouri who says ‘carbo bev’ who the entire rest of the country HATES.”

Today’s xkcd makes me think of my son Ben’s childhood soda-language: “co-Coke” (cold Coke), “kid-Coke” (caffeine-free Coke), and “man-Coke” (the Real Thing itself). See also Things my children no longer say.
