#ICYMI: Burrito Blankets, Abandoning Instagram, & What Your Name Says About You

We’re having way too much fun with words this week. Welcome to the third installment of In Case You Missed It, MarketSmiths’ roundup of our favorite writing-related content from around the web.

► We love these hilarious (and occasionally poetic) reinventions of everyday words. Donuts = sugar bagels. Feather = bird leaf. Aquarium = fish museum.

► A word is worth a thousand ‘grams? You might want to ditch social media on your next vacay. When one writer goes on an exotic vacation, she discovers the depth of putting pen to paper in comparison to the shallow faux filters of Instagram.

► Names are just handy labels—a rose by any other name, right? Guess again, Shakespeare. The data journalists over at FiveThirtyEight have figured out how to tell someone’s age just from their name.

► Meanwhile, the reporters at The Atlantic found that companies with short, easy-to-remember names achieve more success.

Stay tuned for our next edition of #ICYMI!
