Name Calling

My daughters haven't had an opportunity to learn any bad words yet. They're creative though. Without any swear words or really naughty terms to use, I heard my 3yr call my 5yr, "You scratchy stinky head!" Doesn't that just make you shiver from fear, ready to go to any lengths to avoid being called such a horrible name? Sadly, it doesn't work on her sister, who responds with words just as fearsome, like "You bad goosy-goose!"
While name calling is still unacceptable in our family, and corrected with explanations of why it's not allowed and what a better solution to the problem might be, sometimes I have to hide in the next room until I'm done laughing at the names they come up with.
