You can tell the Pudu is not from New England or he would have called it a “soda.”
On the other hand, the Rule of Funny would make him say “Pop” anyway (I really can’t see panel 3 being as funny or adorable with him saying “Soda! Soda! Soda!”)
How about “So-da-pop!”?
Also, I know Dee is always clinging to Ted like that, but in panel 4 today, she looks like she really got scared
@maarvarq, too true!
@Frank, so-dee-pop, might work. Gives it flavor. And yes, I imagine the pudu might be terrifying to small children. :)
Never mind espresso…I’d love to see the Pudu on Red Bull. ;) I haven’t tried it – the coffee that’s currently next to me is more than enough – but I’ve heard Red Bull is rather, well, potent!
@ Jill: It’s not called “A stroke in a can” for nothing…
When we lived in So. Boston, the locals called it ‘TONIC’, which was _really_ confusing until the adults sorted it out for me. But then, I arrived (in fifth grade) with four years in the Ozarks, so ‘tonic’ was the least of my challenges… Lotsa time in the library that year.
This info is very lame, but anyway: While people from Argentina drink “gaseosa”, and others drink “soda”, we chileans drink “bebida” literally, “drink”.
BTW, maybe you have not noticed it, but Vachel and the Pudu loos very alike the Condor and Huemul of the chilean Coat of Arms. Even more fun for me!
