Or, in Britain, they're soft drinks.

...Which makes just about as much sense as either of those names

no.. it's pop
User avatar #528 to #4 - whygraine (03/11/2013) [-]
Yes but no one calls them that, it#s 'fizzy drinks'
User avatar #527 to #4 - milthyfoustache (03/11/2013) [-]
Call it pop up north duck.
#474 to #4 - schlemmons (03/11/2013) [-]
It's soft drinks because they don't contain alcohol. You don't hear them called it often or anything, but alcoholic drinks are "hard" drinks.
User avatar #449 to #4 - paintplayer (03/11/2013) [-]
"Soft" refers to the fact that they lack alcohol, as opposed to "hard" as in Mike's Hard Lemonade, which as you may know contains alcohol.

Yea as opposed to hard drinks.
User avatar #278 to #4 - kolsinder (03/11/2013) [-]
I always say 'fizzy drink'.
#248 to #4 - jaysim (03/11/2013) [-]
or you know, pop or whatever we're drinking...in my town if we need some one to pass a drink over it's " 'ere giz that drink over mate, cheers!"
User avatar #208 to #4 - mintea (03/11/2013) [-]
Well, I can't speak for all of Britain but I know we English folk call it pop, and I'm pretty sure the Scots call it "ginger"
User avatar #477 to #208 - newmanchamp (03/11/2013) [-]
I've lived in Ohio my whole life. I've always called it pop. So does everyone else in this little town.
#250 to #208 - jaysim (03/11/2013) [-]
I've heard jocks calling Coke/pepsi Juice...I was in a chippy in edinburgh and some bloke wanders in and gets a battered mars bar and a can of juice...I was confused
User avatar #317 to #250 - mintea (03/11/2013) [-]
Wait wait wait
Battered...mars bar?
._.
I am curious now.
#319 to #317 - jaysim (03/11/2013) [-]
> Take a mars bar
> Deep fry it
> Have a heart attack
This Chippy advertised the fact that they would deep fry anything...ANYTHING
#558 to #319 - mattkingg **User deleted account** (03/11/2013) [-]
My chippy deep fried me a dount covered in broken curly wurly wrapped in an english pancake, **** was amazing
User avatar #320 to #319 - mintea (03/11/2013) [-]
Anything you say?
I've got some sick things in my head right now.
User avatar #200 to #4 - TheSchwartz (03/11/2013) [-]
Or in Japan, where they're called "Juice"
#191 to #4 - jakeleefromtheuk (03/11/2013) [-]
I'm British and i can confirm that we refer to them as a can/bottle of wizz-pop-wizz-bang-feel-the-bubbles-go-down

Anyone who actually lives in Britain (like myself) will tell you we call it pop, not soft drinks
User avatar #197 to #188 - cakershaker (03/11/2013) [-]
what? no way! it's called a fizzy drink.
User avatar #199 to #197 - lordmoldywart (03/11/2013) [-]
Or that, pop and fizzy drink are the most popular here, but pop is used more often
User avatar #420 to #199 - bigmanfifty (03/11/2013) [-]
Your probably one of those Isle of Man weirdos they warned us about in school
User avatar #572 to #420 - lordmoldywart (03/12/2013) [-]
I've never been to the Isle of Man, but I assume they say pop there too. Everywhere in the UK people say pop more than fizzy drink
User avatar #574 to #572 - bigmanfifty (03/12/2013) [-]
Really? I said 'pop' in London (where I live) and my mates were like 'you want music, what?'
#96 to #4 - pastttttt (03/11/2013) [-]
Go back to Britain... with your spotted dick and dead baby!
#24 to #4 - anonymous (03/11/2013) [-]
It's called a soft drink since as opposed to a hard drink they have no alcohol content ergo soft drinks makes total sense.
User avatar #22 to #4 - monkeytiger (03/11/2013) [-]
In britain I thought they would be called something like 'fizzy-dizzy carbo-liquid flarghle barghble' or some ****
User avatar #568 to #22 - bilall (03/12/2013) [-]
wah? are you talking bout the bubbly wubbly?
#559 to #22 - hargleblarg (03/11/2013) [-]
Not quite my name, but close enough.

'sup.
#454 to #22 - anonymous (03/11/2013) [-]
I'm British and I very much enjoyed reading that, bravo sir!
#407 to #22 - anonymous (03/11/2013) [-]
Not to far off , in london their just called fizzy drinks
#323 to #22 - cakefaceify (03/11/2013) [-]
I call them fizzy drinks and I'm English. I hope this makes you feel a little better at least.

P.S. Blarghel.
#276 to #22 - anonymous (03/11/2013) [-]

#88 to #22 - anonymous (03/11/2013) [-]
some people say fizzy drinks
User avatar #16 to #4 - douthit (03/11/2013) [-]
That's what it is here in the American South, too. We say "soda" around Northerners so we don't confuse them.
#13 to #4 - anonymous (03/11/2013) [-]
No we still call it pop
User avatar #6 to #4 - daisynomnom (03/10/2013) [-]
I asked for lemonade in Chicago and they looked at me like a had two heads.

Wait, what do they call it?
User avatar #10 to #8 - daisynomnom (03/10/2013) [-]
Soda or sprite. I asked for soda whenever I wanted lemonade from that point and I always got it.
User avatar #11 to #10 - smalltimelime (03/10/2013) [-]
ohhh I always wondered what soda was actually defined as
User avatar #51 to #11 - jimimij (03/11/2013) [-]
Soda actually implies carbonation. as in "whiskey and soda" I dont see why lemonade would be called "soda"
User avatar #229 to #51 - ningyoaijin (03/11/2013) [-]
Lemonade is carbonated...
User avatar #61 to #51 - evenx (03/11/2013) [-]
It's a chicago thing
User avatar #5 to #4 - daisynomnom (03/10/2013) [-]
Fizzy drinks too
User avatar #7 to #5 - smalltimelime (03/10/2013) [-]
Oh yeah...
Well, that one makes sense.
Though usually we kinda call it what it actually is?
