“Who made the first soft drink?"/"Adam—he made Eve’s cherry pop.”

"Cherry pop” can mean a cherry soda, but it also has a sexual meaning. An old joke is:

Q: Who made the first soft drink?
A: Adam—he made Eve’s cherry pop.


The joke was popular by at least 1943, during World War II.

Isn’t there a town named China in some Midwestern state?  Anyway, just a couple weeks ago a co-worker from the Midwest asked for a “pop” and mostly got blank stares.  Which reminds me of a joke from junior high: “Who was the first beverage maker?  Adam - he made Eve’s cherry pop!”

Urban Dictionary
cherry pop
When a girl who is a virgin has sex for the first time with a guy. A piece of skin inside of her vagina is moved once the guy has “put it in”. Making her bleed. When your cherry is popped you only bleed the first time.
