Here's one that's bound to produce variation: what do you call the carts that
sell junk food at construction sites? Are any of you acquainted with any
construction workers? In South Florida, they were called "roach coaches"; I
think I've also heard the relatively bland "lunch truck"
One of the reasons they are called roach coaches, aside from the obvious
is many had custom horns that playe, among other things, the Mexican song,
In South Florida we also call cockroaches palmetto bugs.
