Corn Burning Fool
Since the pop vs soda topic came up, here is a poll>
I have called it a "market" since I was growing up. Sometimes now we say "super market" or even just say the "H-E-B"Does anyone else call the grocery store the "market", or is that just an L.A. thing?
Oh, that is from a song that plays on the radio non-stop over here (oops, I didn't see that I spelled it wrong!). Probably didn't make it over to NZ yet - or maybe people over there have better taste.JNL said:

They're called "Devil strips" in Ohio too. Haven't the foggiest why.Jen said:Another one, that strip of grass, between the sidewalk and road was called a "devils strip" by my parents. Weird! Anyone heard of that one before?
And I never encountered a "party store" until I moved up north.

As for the whole "awnt v. ant" debate, my wife and I have come to a compromise - by virtue of the fact that she's a New Englander, hers are "awnts," and mine in KY are "ants."

Hmmm.... don't remember W-pop. But my favorite Western NY beverage (aside from Visniaks Cherry Soda) is Wegman's "Mountain Woo", their mountain dew rip off. hee!Yodan731 said:Sprinkles it is, but the crazy people at my local Dairy Queen seem to think they should be Jimmies.

W-Pop Wooo! It's Dynamite. Anyone from New York remember those ads? Or what they were about?
