Kids don’t always use the correct words to describe the world around them, but they often come up with hilarious ― and arguably superior ― terms.
Many parents tweet their kids’ funny descriptors and malapropisms, including “chocolate jello” (pudding), “sneeze gravy” (snot), “finger skaters” and “statue of puberty.”
