in thread I refer to a non-specified carbonated beverage as a:

Coke - That's a bit specific, you can hardly call a Sprite a coke now can u! That's just stupid!

Go to Atlanta and ask for a Coke at a diner. I'll give 3-1 odds the waitress says something like "OK, sugar, what kind of coke would you like?" -- they really do use it as a generic term (think xerox or kleenex) in that part of the country. It's a bit bizarre if you aren't used to it.
