You'll Love This Account That Documents The "Real Names" Of Everyday Objects

The English language can be so stuffy. It's bad enough English speaking countries expect the rest of the world to learn how to speak our native tongue without expecting people to know how to pronounce the word "colonel" or know when the hell to put an "i" before an "e."
Thankfully, there are some people, like Twitter user Mark Dempsey, who know how to have a little fun. Last November, Dempsey created the Twitter account Correct Names, which he uses to tweet out photos of everyday objects. Instead of using the items' dictionary-approved names, the British funnyman puts his own twist on their titles, and the end result keeps his 46.4k online followers rolling. For example, why would anyone say "butter" when they could say "bread moisturizer?"

Since starting the account about nine months ago, Dempsey's tweeted over 150 different photos of everything from a glass of water and a bathtub to a trumpet and a lawnmower, all with names that are somehow simultaneously ridiculous and totally logical. Recently, BuzzFeed caught onto the craze and gave the attention Correct Names deserves. Now, we too, are obsessed.
Here are just some of his side-splitting creations:
