Children’s creativity knows no bounds. And it’s not just them having much fewer limitations on a social and psychological level, but also the fact that they think differently altogether.

And this different thought has spawned a Twitter thread where people share instances of kids calling various things names that either sound similar, but are actually different, or calling them a completely different thing that makes much more sense not just to them, but to us adults as well.

It’s things like deodorant being called armpit makeup or a freezer being called an ice cupboard.

So, take a look at our neatly curated list of some of the best tweets of kids calling things other things that are actually hilariously entertaining below! And why not leave an upvote and a comment on the submissions you enjoyed the most.

LOOOOOVE IT!!! Reminds me of a human "talk to text" program. I can just picture the little one (having heard mom refer to a "clementine") attempting to decipher and learn the word that quickly escaped mom's lips without hesitation in order to know what to request next time.

Well, the word avocado is derived from the Nahuatl word for "testicle" so cockamole isn't too far off!
