What creative genius named these things?



1. The White House

2. Waterfall

3. Orange (the fruit...I mean they weren't even trying when they named this)

4. Jump rope

5. The Band

6. Shorts (some super clever genius decided to name long shorts Capri Pants...I hate him even more)

7. New York ("Hey...this reminds me of York")

8. Underarm (not. even. trying.)

9. Campfire.

10. Basketball.

These are some of the LEAST looked up words in the dictionary.

Others?

6. Outer space

Go, Cake, Go! I was gonna rip you off by posting the 100% fresh entry "Blueberry," but abstained. Kinda.

Hmm. Jim Shooter, Drew Barrymore, Papa Hitler, and Barney the Dinosaur. Lotsa celebrities are posting today. Woulda thought it would be tough for Barney to type. Giant, meaty purple paws and all.

Ah...The White House...

Just remember, we burned it when we kicked your ass in the War of 1812.
