Just because it makes that sound

2018-02-02 15:59:27 UTC  

But you might call a song about being shot bang bang

2018-02-02 16:12:22 UTC

An entire culture doesn't call it "boomstick"

2018-02-02 16:12:55 UTC  

You don't go into a gun store and ask to buy a boomstick

2018-02-02 16:16:19 UTC  

Here we go

2018-02-02 16:18:07 UTC  

Ah yes

2018-02-02 16:19:11 UTC  

The "common name" for an old anti-tank weapon coming from an instrument which barely actually exists definitely proves it

2018-02-02 16:19:27 UTC  


2018-02-02 16:19:29 UTC  

In Cali

2018-02-02 16:19:33 UTC  

It's called soda

2018-02-02 16:19:39 UTC  

In the north it's pop

2018-02-02 16:19:43 UTC  

They used to say

2018-02-02 16:19:45 UTC  

Soda pop

2018-02-02 16:21:14 UTC  

Two differences are that it's still not based on the sound it makes though (although the original instrument might well be) and that the *official* name became bazooka (despite it also being used informally for big guns you hold on your shoulder)

2018-02-02 16:21:28 UTC  

Which means that at that point, it has nothing to do with soda being called pop

2018-02-02 16:21:39 UTC  

Or with a gun being called a bang

2018-02-02 16:21:43 UTC  

The bazooka is also related to some ways with the boomstick

2018-02-02 16:21:58 UTC  

Boomstick is a shotgun

2018-02-02 16:24:21 UTC  

Or with a piano being called a plonk or a guitar being called a twang

2018-02-02 16:25:28 UTC  

Blunderbuss is only called after a sound in Dutch with "thunder pipe"

2018-02-02 16:26:11 UTC  

The Dutch are a strong and industrious people.

2018-02-02 16:26:13 UTC  

Which, considering it's from the 1600s, is like calling a gun today a "firearm"

2018-02-02 16:26:33 UTC  


2018-02-02 16:26:44 UTC  

Do you think people call snorkels snorkels

2018-02-02 16:26:51 UTC  

On account of the snorkeling sound they make?

2018-02-02 16:28:42 UTC  

Considering it's a very unique sound that will *only* be made with a snorkel, maybe

2018-02-02 16:29:06 UTC  


2018-02-02 16:29:07 UTC  

Considering you posted a video of a beer bottle being opened, it sure doesn't seem like the same applies to "soda pop"

2018-02-02 16:29:38 UTC  

It is exactly why that is.

2018-02-02 16:30:08 UTC  

If you search for "soda pop sound" you will not get a beer bottle being opened

2018-02-02 16:30:21 UTC  


2018-02-02 16:30:25 UTC  

You'll get a sound now

2018-02-02 16:30:35 UTC  

If you open a glass bottle, a can, and a plastic bottle, you'll get three different sounds
