When i was a kid in Brooklyn we called it a Johnny Pump..Soda in the New York area is called POP In some parts of the country...

    In Atlanta, when you ask for a Soda or Pop, you ask for a Coke.

    If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

    I grew up in Minnesota (correctly pronounced "Minnasoda":

    Rubber band is a "Rubber Binder"

    Lend is Borrow. as in "Borrow me a dollar"

    Casserole is the (usually glass) vessel in which you cook "Hotdish"
    Q.E.D. - casserole (the food) is "Hotdish"

    A snack or dessert (usually) baked in a flat pan, about 1.5" thick or less cut into bite size pieces are "Bars."

    "Could be worse." is the response to How are you? instead of good, fine or well. If you are in exceptionally good spirits, it is proper to say "Not too bad."

    The song ends with "If one of those bottles should happen to fall, I'll be there to drink it all" instead of Take one down, pass it around, 98 bottles of beer on the wall.

    The game is "Duck, Duck, Gray Duck" not Duck, Duck, Goose
