These Tweets About Kids Renaming Everyday Things Prove They Should Be In Charge Of The Dictionary

English speakers may dominate America, but it’s one of the hardest languages to learn. Just think about how hard contractions and tenses are to figure out if you’re not born into an English household. English even throws in curveballs like tear and tear, which mean two totally different things depending on how you pronounce it.

Luckily we have our children to save us from the complicated English language. Parents shared tweets of words their children used for everyday things, and I have to admit, they’re way better than anything humans have thought up so far. Seriously. Why didn’t I think of “flamingo witches”?

Halloween Eagle Sounds Way More Intimidating

I never had a problem with the word crow until I heard a way better name for it like “Halloween eagle.” A group of crows is called a “murder” so it only makes sense that they have an equally intimidating name.

It might get a bit wordy though if you have to change scarecrow to “scare-Halloween-eagle.”
