Woman left stunned as she discovers why cheerleaders and backpacks have their names… but not everyone can get on board | The Sun

A WOMAN has been left stunned after realising why things like cheerleaders and backpacks are called what they are.

Emma took to TikTok to share a video in which she weighed in on "words I didn't realise mean exactly what they're called".

"First cheerleaders – they lead the cheers," she began.

Before continuing: "This one's actually mind blowing to me. Dunkin' Donuts.

"I was thinking about it, like I thought it was someone called Dunkin' and Donuts, but no, it's because it's coffee and donuts – Dunkin Donuts."

She continued her list with "tie dye" – "you tie it, like with rubber bands, and then you dye it".

And backpack.

"You guys are going to think I'm stupid but backpack – it's a pack that you put on your back," she said, incredulously.

Emma concluded her list with "fireplace" – "it's like a place for the fire".

And while some people shared Emma's amazement about the words' meanings, others were less impressed.
