Kids Hilariously Rename Things, Prove Adults Have The English Language All Wrong

But seriously, why don't we call crows "Halloween eagles"?

Sometimes kids have a way of making adults realize that they have it all wrong. Like, for example, the English language. Recently, author Tessa Dare shared on Twitter that her friend's 5-year-old called a crow a "Halloween eagle." 

"And a child shall lead us. It is known. This is the new name for the bird-formally-known-as-crow. You know what to do, Merriam Webster," Dare tweeted. 


But what Dare didn't expect was that her tweet would go viral, with other people posting their own experiences of children brilliantly renaming things. 

Another person shared that their child refers to Kraft cheese singles as "cheese pads."

And it didn't stop there. Dare's tweet has been met with thousands of comments, some of which had us totally cracking up. Check out some of our favorites below:

1. "A bird and a penguin hugged."

2. "Quesadilla skins."

3. "Circle bread."

6. "Pizza salt."

7. "Snow headphones."

9. "Battle unicorn."
