If you leave four or five circus peanuts in a ziploc bag in your truck on a summer day, they become soft and very tasty by the end of the day.

You goddamn sumbitch. Going to make me drive to Walgreens for a bag of those.
Was at Kroger picking up some popcorn for movie night and spotted them. I can't resist.

I tip more to the saucy side, but I'll give the business to ANY authentic wing.

Macarons

 

Popular opinion: they're beautiful, aesthetic desert

Unpopular opinion: they're not tasty.  just colored sugar.

I refer to all of my sports teams as “we”. I realize I don’t play for them, I don’t wear jerseys or jorts, and I fully accept that my fandom has no outcome on the game. Having said that, my teams are “we” and “us”. If you don’t like that, we think you should go fuck yourself.

for the most part, sausage is overwhelmingly mediocre. 

 

its left over meat products, ground up and squished into a casing so theres no original texture left, and blended with just enough spices to make it palatable. 

 

you can have it as a side, but theres no instance where anyone should want it as a main dish.  not chorizo, not sucuk, not haggis, not boudin, not kolbasz, not polse, not kielbasa, not morcilla, not hotdogs, not wurst, not even if its smoked by Aaron Franklin.

I hate the clown that says “oh, oh I’m sorry. Are you on the team. Ha this guy said we.” Fuck off, dude. Although i will admit, I say a lot more “we” and “us” when we’re winning lol.

Just because your team won, it doesn't mean you're not a loser.

Do you want me to say "coke"?  I'll say "coke" when I'm talking about Coke.

"Soda" is for people who are trying to impress you with their faux sophistication.

Well, "soda" is what it's called. "Sodey-Pop" makes you sound like an 8 year old from the 50's. And "Pop" makes one sound like a backwoods redneck, based on its use here in rural Oklahoma.

Why can't people just be adults and order the beverage of their choice using the correct proper name of said beverage?  

You want a Coca-Cola?  Ask for a "Coca-Cola" or "Coke" 

You want a Sprite?  Ask for a "Sprite" 

You want a Root Beer?  Ask for a "Root Beer" 

This soda/pop/coke thing is geographically cute and all but it's for children.  Be a fucking man and order what you want using the fucking name of the drink either printed on the menu or on the soda dispenser labels.  Jesus, every fucking year we have to go through this because grown men entrusted with 6,000 pound trucks and assault rifles can't be fucking bothered to order a soft drink by name.  What the fuck people?  

You want a Big Red tough guy?  Don't say "Coke" or "Soda Water"...just say "Big Red"...you'll be wildly impressed when one is delivered to your table 3 minutes later you fucking child.

I'm basically a hick/redneck with an education that doesn't hate people who are different than them.  So, I'll wear this one.

No one I know will "order" a Sprite by saying "give me a coke".

Now if you are at home you might say "let's go get a coke" and you may get a sprite when you get there.

Fair point, but has any adult ever, in the history of this timeline, ever been sitting at home...looked at another adult and said, "let's go get a coke"?  If my wife said that to me, I'd call an attorney. 

Now, I have had friends over the years look at me in their home and said, "let's go get some coke"  But that was a totally different group of friends 20 years ago.

This is the worst day of the year on social media. Jingoism as performance art coupled with heaping scoops of "how can I turn this national tragedy 20 years ago into something that focuses on me?"

I can say this having lived in Iowa and Texas that coke and pop are the generic terms used to describe drinks in the garage or other area (like covered porches in Iowa in the winter). It’s basically “they’re cokes/pops in the blank” meant to tell you where to find whatever variety they have. Nobody says give me a coke/pop without saying what kind at restaurants or fast food places. Midwesterners may ask what kind of pop they have but will then state what they want. Texans assume coke products plus Dr Pepper and look confused when Pepsi products are offered.

That assumes alcohol at my house.

“Coke” is carbonated sodawater usually from a drive thru, possibly random fountain.
“Sweet/shake” is a malt, shake, float, blizzard, soft serve, etc. Possibly dine in during the before times, but likely from a fast food place.

Same here. I'd never suggest to another adult that we go out for a soft drink.

I don't think Texans should be confused when Pepsi products are offered. Applebee's, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, KFC, Golden Corral, iHOP, Buffalo Wild Wings, Quiznos, and Furr's.  That's a whole lotta shitty restaurants that serve Pepsi products to a whole lotta Texans.  Millions in fact.

You know coke products are more popular in Texas and I’d argue that Pepsi products are more popular in the Midwest. And I only eat at KFC occasionally from the above list had no idea those restaurants were Pepsi places. Taco Bell and Pizza Hut I did know, but never got drinks from either when I did go there. That’s a pretty shitty lineup of places to eat lol.
