For example, apparently a cornmeal-battered hot dog on a stick is called a corn dog, not a corny dog as we've always referred to it. I blame our dad for this because, of the two of our parents, he is far more likely to have been the one feeding us meat on a stick.
It has also been brought to our attention that the elastic band used to hold hair up off the neck is called a hair tie, not a ponytail as we have been known to call it. A ponytail is the result of pulling hair back and securing it with a hair tie. I still have trouble with this one, but I'm making an effort. Whenever I trip up I can usually halfway save myself by calling it a ponytail holder.
The most recent blow to our collective intellect came in the form of a box of Little Debbies we saw in the store that looked like this:
The answer to both of those questions is: Probably. BUT! A little Google Image search revealed that they used to be called Swiss Cake Rolls on the box, so it turns out we're not really wrong; our information is just a little outdated.
Anyway, I'll see you guys afternow. I'm off to do some computering at the place where I job.
*Stop judging us. Right now. Little Debbie was like a fourth sister to us.
