‘Oh, So That’s What That Means’: The True Meaning of Many Common Words
Think you know what common words like cell phone, bacon and calories mean? Think again.
Tumblr “Oh, So That’s What That Means” has hilarious alternate definitions – or some people would argue the true meanings – of these and other words. For example, bacon isn’t just a delicious strip of pork but is actually “the main reason you are not a vegetarian.” Calories are really “tiny creatures that live in your closet and sew your clothes a little bit tighter every night.”
And this Tumblr not only has the real meanings for common words but also for websites, brands and stores. For instance, the meaning of Target is “Wal-Mart for winners,” Nutella is “the only reason to buy bread,” and Web MD truly means “something that makes a mild cold into a disease that will kill you in the next 24 hours.”
The true meanings of words aren’t always what you think!
