The Midwest says pop because Faygo pop was HUGE so we just kinda refer to every fizzy drink as pop now

There seems to be some confusion about how it works in the South. Yes, soda/pop is often collectively referred to as "Coke". However, when it is necessary to clarify that you are referring to all sodas/pops, typically either soft drink or soda will be used to avoid confusion.

It's just more efficient this way. Chances are you're referring to one specific type beverage anyway, so you might as well specify to begin with. It saves time and energy on everybody's part. Plus, they were all invented in the South anyway, we should be the ones to dictate which terms are used.

We're the most obese region for a reason, we're clearly going to be the superior method for ordering sugary drinks. There are so many other things in the South's history that have terribly wrong, but if there's anything we've gotten right, it's the soda debate. It's the only part of my cultural identity that I have to be proud of, please just let me have this one thing.

Anyway, if you are in a restaurant and ask for Coke, you will get one of the following three responses:
1. "OK sir/ma'am, I'll be right back with that"
2. "I'm sorry, we only have Pepsi, would that be alright?"
3. "OoooWeeee, we gots erselves a fancy city-buoy, Nu-oh, all we gots roun he'a is RC Co-La. Straight from the Good Lo'd His-self"

I can honestly say I've never had a trailer park outside of a trailer park. If you see anything about RC Cola, you need to get out immediately, you've gone too deep into the South and your life is in danger. Know the sign, know the danger.

Anyway, I hope this was both informative and entertaining, and I thank you for reading this unnecessarily long post about geographical linguistics.
