People Win While Renaming Popular Items With More Apt Descriptions

[rebelmouse-image 18358243 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Sometimes those popular items we buy and use daily could certainly have a better name. The people who named the items simply were not thinking clearly, that's why people have renamed some of those items that clearly have a better fitting name!

ibrabatool asks: If you were in charge renaming things so that their names would be more accurate, what names would you come up with?

Squid goals

[rebelmouse-image 18358244 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

a group of Squids should be just called a Squad.

Totally misnamed

[rebelmouse-image 18358245 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Iceland -> Greenland

Likewise: Greenland -> Iceland

Completely appropriate!

[rebelmouse-image 18353943 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Toilet paper = "crapkins"

Plus, I always thought toothbrush should be "teethbrush" since you clean them all with it.

Apparently thinking in German can really help

[rebelmouse-image 18358246 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Just translate the literal meaning of any German word to English.

Turtle = Shield toad

Slug = Naked snail

Tuesday = Workday

And Finland should be removed from the dictionary.

This is a little small minded, but YAS!

[rebelmouse-image 18358247 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Astronomers become.... Skyientists!

A more fun name for sure

[rebelmouse-image 18358248 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Pregnancy test = maybe baby

Some people already ahead of the curve when addressing this item

[rebelmouse-image 18358249 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Colander = hole bowl

it's not a set of skis,, it's a bike!

[rebelmouse-image 18358250 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd rename jet ski to "boaterbike".

An animal that needs a name to match how ridiculous they are

[rebelmouse-image 18350819 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I would rename seagulls to beach chickens.

When your batteries don't work anymore...

[rebelmouse-image 18358251 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Got this one from a 4 year old, batteries that have expended their charge are flatteries.

Lets go back to basics

[rebelmouse-image 18358252 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

W = double v, not double u

Absolutely backwards

[rebelmouse-image 18348241 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Driveway <==> Parkway

Parkway <==> Driveway

Fingers come in all shapes and sizes

[rebelmouse-image 18356389 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Fries would be potato fingers.

When is it again?

[rebelmouse-image 18344761 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Clocks would obviously be called when machines, do not try to change my mind

Lets be honest here

[rebelmouse-image 18358253 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Breadknife - breadsaw.

This would need some time to sink in

[rebelmouse-image 18358254 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Yesterday is now lasterday

Another German inspired gem

[rebelmouse-image 18358255 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Sorrow Bacon -- Kummerspeck (excess weight gained from emotional eating)

totally fitting

[rebelmouse-image 18358256 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

American football -> handball

We will miss the french flair, but this is basically what it is

[rebelmouse-image 18358257 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A carousel should be called a Horse Tornado

Just call it what it really is!

[rebelmouse-image 18358258 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Public relations - Propaganda Relations

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

And that is... "is just one enough?"

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.

What if your partner wants more cookie dough with your strawberry?

Redditor Pineapple-Status wanted to hear everyone's thoughts on opening the bedroom to others. They asked:

"What would you do if your long term SO suddenly wants to have sex with other people?"

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.

The little things that a truly rich person would not think twice about.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?

Redditor ConAir161057 wanted to compare notes about the things in life that feel like items only money can buy. They asked:
