Squirt is grapefruit soda not lemonade

[-] BaumGeist@lemmy.ml 5 points 1 month ago

In some dialects, "lemonade" is any citrus soda

[-] CptEnder@lemmy.world 2 points 1 month ago

And doesn't hold a candle to Ting

Squirt isn't lemonade, it's a citrus soda. And also pee.

[-] RainBlast@startrek.website 38 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

In the UK lemonade is a carbonated soda. I thought that was the root of the joke, with a cultural confusion. The other commenters seem to think it's a pee joke? But if it was, it wasn't funny so I think I'm right.

That said, my interpretation isn't funny either? What is this post?

If anyone is afraid of that link, it's to urban dictionary.

[-] lseif@sopuli.xyz 2 points 1 month ago

to anyone who doesnt believe this reply, look for a 'view source' option on the comment, or if on mobile consider using URLCheck

[-] ericatty@lemmy.ml 3 points 1 month ago

It would be hilarious if your link was a rickroll.

The "View Source" option is also on Jerboa mobile app, but I had forgotten about it.

You can use Copy -> Select Text in Boost for Lemmie app to see the source

Citrus soda is lemonade in certain parts of the world. Australia for example.

[-] KazuyaDarklight@lemmy.world 9 points 1 month ago

What is the word in such places for the non-soda drink?

[-] ASeriesOfPoorChoices@lemmy.world 6 points 1 month ago

doesn't exist.

a true tragedy.

closest they get is cordial. flavored sugar syrup concentrate, add to water at a 1:7 to 1:9 ratio to make a drink.

Similar to those frozen cans of lemonade you add to a big jug of water, but not.

[-] lseif@sopuli.xyz 1 points 1 month ago

still lemonade. maybe 'homemade' or 'traditional' lemonade. but more often 'lemonade lemonade'

[-] LilDumpy@lemmy.world 1 points 1 month ago

Decarbonated citrus soda.

[-] Imgonnatrythis@sh.itjust.works 4 points 1 month ago

You saying I drank pee in the 90s?

[-] HeyThisIsntTheYMCA@lemmy.world 4 points 1 month ago

Ah, Jolt but worse.

Squirt is a grapefruit flavored soft drink, here. Come to America if you want Squirt that's not just regular lemonade. ;)

[-] gedaliyah@lemmy.world 12 points 1 month ago

Someone will have to explain that one to me, but I have a feeling is something gross.

[-] makeshiftreaper@lemmy.world 30 points 1 month ago

I think the joke is that "squirt" from women is pee and people do a lot of mental gymnastics to avoid saying they're getting pissed on. Like an equivalent to a yellow snow joke. It also hinges on the fact that Squirt the beverage is a grapefruit soda that also doesn't taste anything like lemonade

[-] Death_Equity@lemmy.world 11 points 1 month ago

The porn industry's marketing is pretty wild. They rebranded watersports and made a generation think that losing bladder control during sex was a desirable outcome and that it wasn't pee.

What is sad is that it worked because basic human anatomy is not common knowledge.

[-] f4f4f4f4f4f4f4f4@sopuli.xyz 4 points 1 month ago

It isn't urine, at least, not all of it or not always. It has a certain smell and it's not the scent of urine.

I'll tell my wife that I need more data (taste, etc.) Double-blind testing this is going to be... interesting...

[-] Death_Equity@lemmy.world 0 points 1 month ago

Look at female anatomy in a textbook and tell me what gland or organ excretes that much fluid from the urethra that isn't the bladder.

You are into piss play. There is nothing wrong with consenting adults having fun with pee, the problem is calling piss something else and pretending that it isn't piss to preserve a porn marketing induced delusion.

[-] f4f4f4f4f4f4f4f4@sopuli.xyz 4 points 1 month ago

I've heard a bit about the "Cowper's gland"; female version of the prostate?

Like you say, I'm fine with it, pleasuring her until she loses control is my kink and it's less messy/dangerous than scat. 😂

Marketing's job is to warp reality. 🤪

[-] Death_Equity@lemmy.world 2 points 1 month ago

You are probably thinking of Bartholin's or Skene's glands, located by the vaginal opening on both sides towards the bottom and top respectively.

The Bartholin's are about the size of a pea and produces a few drops of fluid, like precum, and is analogous to the male Cowper's that produce precum. The Skene's are about the diameter of a pea but a couple centimeters long and produce a few milliliters of fluid and is analogous to the male prostate, that produces the majority of seminal fluid.

Thanks for the info! The more you know, the more you realize how much more there is to know. 💦

[-] Twinklebreeze@lemmy.world 3 points 1 month ago

Losing control of bodily functions can be hot in some situations. But in porn they aren't even trying to make it look natural. They just pretend to cum, and take a piss. You can see them pushing it out; it's not sexy or appealing. It's fake.

[-] Twitches@lemm.ee 7 points 1 month ago

Squirt soda is delicious. Coulder the better, great summertime drink.

[-] match@pawb.social 2 points 1 month ago

I've fucked around and made some pussyhavers cum before but only one time did one of them decide they wanted to "show off" by squirting. It was not my favorite

[-] lseif@sopuli.xyz 5 points 1 month ago

the first 8 words of this comment are very powerful

[-] LodeMike@lemmy.today 1 points 1 month ago

The post isn't funny at all. The "joke" is urine.

[-] Imgonnatrythis@sh.itjust.works 3 points 1 month ago

I prefer fart jokes but it's a slow joke day.

[-] pixeltree@lemmy.blahaj.zone 4 points 1 month ago

I know calling lemon/lime flavored soda lemonade is a regional thing, but I don't remember what country it's from. Australia, I think?

[-] lseif@sopuli.xyz 3 points 1 month ago

at least australia, and england too i believe

[-] fakeman_pretendname@feddit.uk 2 points 1 month ago

Basically all the countries except those in North America, I think?

[-] pixeltree@lemmy.blahaj.zone 3 points 1 month ago

Wow, I had no idea it was that widespread. I don't look down on it or anything, languages be localised and all that, it just seems odd to me from a practical perspective, because what I call lemonade and lemon-lime soda are super different to me and lumping them under the same name seems like it'd make it difficult to specify which one you mean, but maybe it's kind of like sparkling water, it's still water but with bubbles? Idk flat sprite is still a lot different from lemonade but still vaguely lemony... I think it's one of the neater differences in terminology between countries tbh.

[-] fakeman_pretendname@feddit.uk 2 points 1 month ago

In the UK, you can generally still find what you'd recognise as lemonade, but more likely under names like cloudy/flat/traditional/homemade/US style lemonade, then double check the ingredients for carbonated water. If it's just called lemonade (or cherryade, limeade, orangeade etc), it's fizzy.

The other way round, I used to be mystified how Calvin & Hobbes or Bart Simpson etc managed to sell lemonade on a table in front of their house, without a CO2 canister :)

[-] Audacious@sh.itjust.works 1 points 1 month ago

Reminds me of Pocari Sweat drink, which doesn't taste like sweat.
