'All Things Southern' Feature: "Southern Sip"

"Southern Sip"
12" x 4"
Oil on Canvas
So here's the deal.....we don't call it "soda"; we don't call it "pop"; we don't call it "soda pop"....we call it "Coke".  Well, we actually call 'them' "Coke".  If you're asked to bring the cokes to a picnic, you better ask what kind because that could be Dr. Pepper, Pepsi, Sprite, Mountain Dew, whatever.  See, they all fall into the subset of "cokes".  "Coke" doesn't always just mean 'big daddy Coke' aka "The Real Thing" which is often referred to as "Co-Cola", but could be any of these tasty beverages.....which, interestingly, have mostly been invented in the South! (How's that for a long sentence?)
Coke - invented in Atlanta, Georgia
Dr. Pepper - invented in Waco, Texas
Pepsi - invented in New Bern, North Carolina
RC Cola - invented in Columbus, Georgia
Mountain Dew - invented in Knoxville, Tennessee
 Pretty cool, huh?
Thirsty now?
