What did you call the drink you created by mixing all the kinds of pop at the fountain drink station together?
There weren't many restaurants in my town with a self-service drink station, if I remember right. Subway was about it. But when we mixed them together, we usually the drink "Suicide." This would have been central Iowa in the 90s. I heard the same in suburban Atlanta a few years later.
I generally hear "suicide" here in Chicago (an informal survey taken at Burger King showed 100% of participants going with "suicide.") However, a friend who grew up in southern Illinois said it went by suicide occasionally there, but was more commonly known as "swamp water." I've also heard tell of it being called "graveyard" now and then.
My grandmother told me that when they mixed all the sodas together in Iowa in the 1940s, they called it "hoopee water." I always imagine the word being spelled as "whoopy" or "whoopee," but those are pronouncd differently. I'm sure there ought to be a W there, but it's not pronounced so much as implied. Not silent, implied. Anyway --- hoopee water.
My wife called it a "tornado" in Cleveland in the 80s and 90s.
What did YOU call it? Be sure to say where and when.
