    Honestly idc if it's a joke or not. I'm the kind of person who will yell at you if you don't call a Softdrink, Pop. It doesn't make a Soda soda sound. It makes a Pop pop sound. So why call it soda. Regardless if you call it Soda or Pop I think both sides can agree on that calling all Softdrinks Coke is retarded. *looks at the south*

    Fun fact British did colonized Philippines for 2 years but they gave our country independence just end up being the hands of Spain.... Bruh moment at the end They did conquer Manila, but can't at other regions since people in the forest who tried to defend the Philippines back in the day are stealth hunters. So yeah.. Bummer
