;D This reminds me... when I was 12ish, my grandma asked me what sort of soda I wanted.. my answer was Mountain Dew. For the entire trip to the grocery store, she explained what a homemade distillery was, and demanded that I tell her who had given me Mountain Dew in the past, and where, and was I by myself, etc.. I remember being so afraid that the stupid little town wasn't stocking it, (why else wouldn't she know?) but when I had proof that I wasn't lying about my sources (Mountain Dew bottles on the soda shelf, YEAH!!), she couldn't believe a company would use such a name and wouldn't buy it.


oh, that's a fun story!

since i had no idea it was a euphemism, i'm guessing it was dreamt up by some guy on madison avenue!

Yeah, that's why there used to be hillbillies on the cans.

be nice to me or zombies will eat you in my novel
