You might think you know the correct names for everyday objects and animals. But you don’t. At least, you don’t according to Twitter account Correct Names, the owner of which has taken it upon themselves to look at the things we interact with daily using some lateral thinking, and give them their actual proper names.

And by ‘proper names’ for everyday objects that means you might eat a bowl of ‘bagel seeds’ (Cheerios) for breakfast or sit under a ‘wooden broccoli’ (tree) for some shade. Are you beginning to see his logic yet?

Sure these Correct Names have something of the totally absurd about them, but then that’s the point.

Mark Dempsey’s ‘Correct Names’ Twitter Account

Everyday Objects Correct Names 02.

The comical account is run by Mark Dempsey from the UK and he’s seen it as his duty to share these new descriptions and words for everyday objects and animals that we are all familiar with, both ones that people have sent him and his own imaginings, of things we thought we knew so well. but now we see how wrong we were.

Often they feature puns, others time they reflect the purpose of the everyday objects in question. So the correct name for a coffin is a ‘human bin.’ Or butter becomes ‘bread moisturiser.’ While a jet ski becomes a ‘boatercycle.’

Some of these everyday objects might make you pause for thought, but mostly they’re just very funny. Check out some of our favorites below. And then make up some of your own to amuse/annoy/worry your friends with.
