You know, around where I grew up, we played both.

It's what everyone not from Minnesota plays.

And sorry for breaking the news to you. I remember how devastated I was when that day arrived.

It is great that our pro sports teams are so bad they required prescription medication.

Although I took a double dose of Lexapro today for unrelated matters.

I had to wait until college to find that out. Was shocking. Same with Oregon is not actually pronounced Or-a-gon...

Like pretty much everything else, the rest of the country uses phrases that make more sense and/or are less juvenile.

Duck Duck Grey Duck vs Duck Duck Goose...I guess if you're not smart enough to differentiate between a duck and goose?

Pop vs Soda...pop is a noise. Soda is a drink.

Minnesota vs Minny...Minny's just way easier to type.

Breezers vs Pants...unless you're three years old, they're pants, not breezers. What is with Minnesotans naming things after what they sound/look like versus what they're called?

It's pop. And Duck, Duck, Gray Duck.

And I've never heard them not called breezers. Everything else sounds weird.

This has to be some Twin Cities vs rest of Minnesota thing cause I think I MIGHT have played "duck duck grey duck" ONCE, but I'm not sure, but I can remember "duck duck goose" all the time when I was a kid.

And I have never heard them called breezers. They are pants.

And either soda OR pop is acceptable.

And no one up here says "Minny" either.

You've got most of that backwards:

Duck Duck Goose is for those who could possibly mistake a goose for a duck, otherwise you wouldn't need to differentiate.

"Soda" is a reference to "soda water," more specifically, it's a reference to a time where carbonated beverages were manually created by mixing pure soda water with a variety of flavorings. This is not the case, and the entire concept of "soda water" is more or less obsolete. "Pop" is a reference to the sound made when a pre-mixed container of flavored carbonated beverage makes when opened. When distributed in a can, this is still the sound it currently makes, albeit other delivery vehicles result in a different, either clicking or hissing sound. Because of this, the term "pop" is accurate, descriptive, and relevant in the modern world. The term "soda" is childish, meaningless, and obsolete.

The sound of the name "minny" does not ever occur in the proper pronunciation of the state. No one calls Wisconsin "Whiskey," and anyone attempting would likely be mocked for such behavior. Why would it be different for its neighbor?

Breezers vs Pants...well I really never cared about that. However "pants" is such a completely non-descript term that does nothing to differentiate from other items, requiring additional descriptors that would be alleviated by assigning a single name to a specific item. Essentially, Breezers is the Rhombus to Pants' Quadrilateral.

Duck duck grey duck is a tongue in cheek version of duck duck goose, meant to be humorous /made up.

Soda is a relic from the 60s, whenever I hear it I think the person is from Pleasantville. Sodapop split into two words and pop is clearly the superior one.

I just type MN.

I went to college in cheeseland and found a few differences:

pop - soda
drinking fountain - bubbler
keg - barrel

oh the good old days, beating the roomie in baseball on his Sega Master System. Yeah, I'm a relic.

I always thought Duck Duck Grey Duck was a smarter children's game because it required you to use your imagination rather than just saying duck or goose.

Duck duck goose you clearly differentiate one child from the group, forcing them to chase you around or be stuck to the outside of the circle like the goose they are, how dare they be different from all the ducks, we don't want any geese around here! Promoting Xenophobia.

Duck Duck grey duck however promotes racism.

Clearly.

So much knowledge to take in.

Also breezers are the only thing I've ever heard anyone call hockey pants.

When I came to college here in MI was the first time I have ever heard someone call breezers anything other than that

It is pop, not soda, and most definitely not,"I would like a coke", "what kind of coke would you like?"

And maybe it was a northern mn thing but what I refer to as a hunting shack, is called a "camp" over here in the U.P. When I think camp, I think of tents but maybe I'm just strange.

Camp for me is any temporary accommodations, and by temporary i mean the place itself is temporary, not just the time spent there.

IMO it's a hunting shack when the structure on the property is indeed a shack. If it's just a spot of land that a bunch of guys meet up on with pickups... then it's a hunting camp.

The land I've hunted on is definitely considered a shack. It was a one room structure, made mostly out of chipboard and had a serious fly problem. Turn on a light, hang fly paper from it... flies are able to land on the bodies of their dead brethren within 5 minutes. It was disgusting... but apparently a lot better than in the past. They used to put raisins in the oatmeal so you wouldn't notice an errant fly or 2.

A shack and a camp are very different. As someone noted, a "camp" is by definition some sort of temporary accomodations. Maybe it's a camper, maybe it's tents, but it's not a permanent, immobile structure. A shack is most any permanent structure on that sort of land, as long as it's not fancy enough to be called a cabin (or if you're weird, a lodge). A shack might be ramshackle, but it doesn't have to be.

My favorite regional saying is in parts of Virginia, instead of pop/soda/coke/soda pop they just say "cold drink." That's it.

According to the wife, in Newfoundland it's "can of drink."

Oh man I just came up with the perfect OT thread title. As in, might actually get picked by Gopher.

Actually got another one too:

"Getting in on the 13th floor"

Gotta remember this one for next week or whenever it gets post spammed up to 900.
