Wrong But Delightful Alternate Names Kids Have For Stuff

Let's get it out of the way right now, kids are dumb as rocks and weird as heck. But that doesn't mean that they can't make decent or at least amusing contributions to the world of linguistic foibles. It means they're pretty great at saying things wrong all the time. The fact that kids are dumb, strange people means that they're an excellent resource for "the wrong thing to say."

Spelling Fails That Beat The Meaning Out Of Words

Alright, fine. Linguistics majors who've taken their 100 level courses will tell you that language is an everchanging thing and that as long as someone has communicated something effectively, it counts as effective human communication. But they're not talking about the extremely dumb spelling fails that we all see every day. Calling a terrarium a "terrorism" isn't a profound shift in language as we know it, it's someone who didn't want to Google "thing my turtle lives in" and settled on the closest bowl of word salad that autocorrect wouldn't slide a red squiggly line under. Here are more spelling failures that really shift the bed.

You could chalk it up to poor proofreading or the state of public schools, but the errors will persist. There's no escaping the impressively creative and dumb spelling fails of the world.

Exciting New Sentences That Went Long Unuttered

Human beings are nothing if not creative, and we have an eye for the particular. Thanks to the fluid, ever-evolving nature of language, and the systems of meaning pre-built into context, our brains are able to word better than words can even word themselves. And because of that, sometimes a patch of words hits you in just the right way, like a spicy rare insult  or a funny tweet or tumblr gem where you go "alright I bet no one ever said that before."
