Yeah, it bothers us when out-of-staters call 'pop' "SODA." But there are some terms used by these 'aliens-from-other-states' that WE have no clue what the heck they're talking about.

Either way, it’s interesting to see the everyday things in Michigan that have different names in different places away from Michigan.....even though we know they're all nuts.

Examples? Aside from 'soda', and according to onlyinyourstate, here are ten more:
