My dad once told me that the giant rolled-up hay bales that we would pass as we drove through the countryside were elephant poop. I believed that until I went on a 7th grade trip to the zoo.

This isn't me, it's something my younger brother thought:
A couple years ago, my brother said that he liked our grandma's TV, because it had a bigger screen than our one. Why was that so good? He thought that smaller-screened TVs didn't show all the picture, some of it got chopped off. He had lived about 7 years in a house that has a few various-sized TVs and never noticed that the picture got smaller on smaller TVs.
