    I was working part time at a hot dog joint with some friends from Mexico & a bunch of kids from the Midwest came in and ordered hot dogs & pop. My Mexican friends had no idea. I just said, "What kind?"

    They said, "Pop!"

    I said, "We have Coke, Pepsi, Sprite..."

    and the kids got it, and so did my coworkers.

    Asking for "pop" or "soda" is like going to a bar and ordering "beer."  What kind?
