another way some around here refer to the sack/bag is actually "poke" or "poke sack"! Appalachia has all kinds of sayings like that.

Yeah I think topper, runners and biro are exclusively Irish terms. At least I haven't heard them being used anywhere else.

Like in the US we usually call all facial tissues "Kleenex", even though that's a specific brand name :)

Same with band-aids :)
reply

Yup. That's why bandaid commercials say "Band-Aid brand", to keep the same thing from happening to their product that happened to Kleenex :)

Damn, calling a bag a poke goes back hundreds of years, if I'm not mistaken. That's like medieval terminology.

Although very rarely and only by a few people I know, mostly in the mountains. It's an old saying for sure.

I'm with you on these, except my first thought was faucet, not spigot. But I think spigot is the correct term.

I am from the south. I will say I am going against the grain around here. I did live in Colorado for a while so perhaps that affected me a bit.
