I call it pop. And a milkshake is only referred to as a malt if it is malted, like malted milk balls...

I also call it pop.  I thought it was a Canadian thing.

We used to have a Malt Stop in a mall near my house growing up.  Man those were awesome.

Pop is not so much a Canadian thing as it is a northern thing.  My Minnesotan bretheren call it pop as well.

Yea, a frosty is a malt.  I used to have a friend that would always order his frosty with extra malt.

It's way too thick to be considered a milkshake. You can't drink it with a straw unless you let it melt, yet they serve it in a cup.

Malts are served in cups. Get over it.

If your poop is that lite, I would suggest you probably see your general physician.  Seriously...if a frostee or malt is thicker than the poop after saturday morning breakfast, that's not good or you need to lay off the Mexican omlette.   Grin

Frosty's are malts. I concur with the MF!

And while we are speaking of fast food, are there any fast food joints that are solely Canadian?

Is that a chain?

I can't think of any others.  We've been properly invaded by the USA.

Noticed this interesting ambigram when I was running THX Optimode on the T2 Blu-ray. It was located at the very edge of the screen, in an area of the screen that would normally be overscanned in most displays. Luckily, my new TV has an 'Unscaled' picture option that turns overscan off. I set the picture mode to 'Widescreen' and overscan turned back on, completely erasing the image. Just a neat little easter egg that I figured I would share. There's also a code next to it, I left that part out because it's not interesting.
