Kids are truly unexpected. They make everything unique by their touch. Even though their views might be completely opposite to reality, sometimes, adults should just give up on them because, believe it or not, they offer interesting solutions. Dillon White—who goes by @dillonmichaelwhite on Instagram—did so a while ago and is happier about it. Recently, he shared how his son renamed a very popular outlet, which took him by surprise for a few seconds. But then he realized it was perfect and smoother to roll out of mouth. The baby's naming expertise touched hundreds of other hearts as well, causing the video to go viral in no time.

At the beginning of the video, White came straight to the point and said, "I have said it before, I will say it again - kids should be in charge of naming everything." They have the unique power to make everything more appealing. Hence, as White puts it, "They should be the marketers of the universe." Once they touch anything with their naming skills, there is no way it turns into a flop. Establishments are losing huge money hiring teams for their labeling efforts when all they need is a kid with a mind as big as the ocean.

The dad then narrates the incident, which brings on the hilarity. He was putting his kids to bed and since it was the weekend, he continued with their adorable custom. This custom involves him asking them, "What was the best part of your week?" The answer just puts a cute little bow on the whole week's adventures. Mason, his 5-year-old boy, speaks up and blows his mind, "I think my favorite part was going to the Strep Throat Lake." The father was surprised because "1. We didn't go to the lake. 2. I don't like water, so that's out of the question and 3. Even if we did go, I don't think there is a place called Strep Throat Lake." So the question was, which wardrobe in "Narnia" did Mason enter and when?

White decided to discuss the matter further because he needed to know whether any fantasy land was hidden in his house. The boy again told him that his favorite part was "visiting Strep Throat Lake" and "it was delicious." At this point, White just decided to burst the bubble and said, "Mason, we did not go swimming this week. It is the middle of the winter." The boy straight up laughed at his father's face and said, "We didn't go swimming. We went to Strep Throat Lake." The father decided that translating Mason was no longer under his expertise and decided to take help from the master of the craft, Riley, his 7-year-old daughter.

Mason gives the rundown to Riley, "Riley, remember, we went to Strep Throat Lake. It was so good with the rice and the chips and the whack-a-mole." It is everything Riley needed to figure out the puzzle. She turns to her dad and calmly says, "He is talking about Chipotle, Dad." Chipotle was too hard for the 5-year-old to pronounce, so he went with 'Strep-Throat-Lake.' Clearly, the latter is a much better name. Easy to pronounce and good on output, what else is needed? Needless to say, Dad was proud.

The comments section was equally delighted by the name. @radio_silence13 shared how her nephew took similar liberties with naming aquarium and wrote, "My nephew once forgot what an aquarium was called, so he called it an 'ocean museum.'" @tamiwas13 completely agreed with White's assertion and commented, "When my youngest was seven, he forgot what question marks were called and termed them 'mystery hooks.' I'm pretty upset it didn't catch on and become official."
