Linguistic What-Ifs

What do you suppose the person who invented the walkie-talkie would have called other things if he (or she) had invented them?

Postage Stamp = Lickie Stickie

Defibrillator = Hearty Starty

Bumble Bee = Fuzzy Buzzy

Home Pregnancy Test = Maybe Baby

Bra =Breastie Nestie

Fork= Stabby Grabby

Socks = Feetie Heaties

Hippopotamus = Floaty Bloaty

Nightmare = Screamy Dreamy

Any other suggestions? Leave a comment.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

If they call flies "flies", why don't they call ants, "crawls?" or something?
