    Ya'll don't seem to know your poke from a hole in the ground.

    When you buy a pig, what do you buy him in? A pig goes in a poke for Pete's sake.

    IT'S A PIG IN A POKE!

    Poke. As in "pig in a poke", or a "poke of tobacco".

    Only SE PA calls it a hoagie. NY & Great Lakes - Hero. Deep South - Po' Boy. The rest of the country - Sub.

    Watched a documentary called The Harbor on amazon prime about Aberdeen. Definitely needed subtitles and at times even the subtitle writer just let things go.

    Count me in with the "Other". I call it a sandwich.

    The one that drives me nuts is when people call a pizza a pie. This is a pie:

    Paper sack is only proper when used to describe an event, example. I slept like a mouse in a paper sack!

    That’s right, who would use a paper bag in a sack race?

    I don't know about this. Living in Chicago in the 50s and 60s and Atlanta from 70s on, it's been none of the above, nor a hero either.
    Always a sub.

    My family always used bag for a laundry bag and any thing smaller. Bigger might be a sack. So when my grade school teachers told us to bring a "sack lunch", it always sounded strange to me.:D

    Depends what's in it. Sack - nuts. Bag - everything else.

    If it's paper, it's a bag.
    A sack is where you keep your boys.
