Haggis is a real animal. They live on hill sides in Scotland, they have two legs shorter on one side so they can stand up straight and not roll down, some have agacent sides shorter so they can face their friends.The leaders have tartan fur so they all know who the boss haggis is.

Thanks dad!

My sister carried on believing this til she was 24!!!

Sometimes, when me and my family would go camping, we would bring along Nutter Butters, as they were my favorite treat at the time. One time, I think it was on the way back from the trip, I got full and said I couldn't eat anymore of the Nutter Butters. My dad, who was driving, then told me to give the remaining ones to him so he could feed them to the "pink elephants" we were going to pass by, but that if I watched I would scare them away. Little did I know that when I looked away, my dad just ate the cookies himself.

While on a car journey with my grandparents when I was about 6 years old my nan told me that you could tell how much milk a cow had inside them just by looking at how white they were. So obviously a cow that was mostly white was due for milking and a cow that was mostly black had recently been milked.

I beleived this for years!!

When I was little i asked my dad why the dinasours were extinct. He told me that a large meator had fallen from the sky and caused dirt to fly up and block out the sun so they dies. WEll, i missunderstood meator and thoght he said "meat eater" so for the longest time i thought a giant t-rex fell off the moon and killed the dinasours.

When I was a kid I believed that a cow lick was the result of my grandpa carrying his children and grandchildren out to the cow barn where he would allow a cow to lick our heads. Hence why my aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, and I all had the same cow licks.

I used to believe that if you held guinea pigs up by their tails their eyes would drop out. I couldn't test this as I could never find their tails.

For several years I believed that if you stuck your tongue out near a horse, it would try to bite your tongue off. I thought that my riding teacher told me that. Turns out, she said that I shouldn't stick my tongue out while riding because I might accidentally bite it.

I new a girl in highschool who thought that lobsters could speak. Apparently, as a small child her biological father hid behind a lobster tank and repeated everything that she and her sister said, like a parrot. Later, after she was adopted, she would run up to lobster tanks at the grocery store and speak to them, earnestly expecting a response. It took her adopted folks a while to figure out why.

When I was little, my mother use to tell me that Kidney beans came from hamsters. That was why there were so many hamsters- they were being breed so then we could harvest their kidneys. I still cannot get myself to eat kidney beans.

I used to believe that warehouses had werewolves in them. That made me scared to go to warehouses.

When I was little I used to love the My Little Ponies and their human friend, Megan. Since Megan's appearance would change in some episodes/movies, I used to believe that every girl that owned a horse or pony was named Megan.

I used to think that all skunks were male because my older sister once told me only boys stink, and girls don't

When I was young there was a mouse in our house. My mum and my brother had seen it and I asked what colour it was. They said it was green with purple spots and I believed them and I was amazed.

This isn't my belief, but my younger cousin's. My aunt (her mom) works in a video store, and loves horror, so my cousin was exposed to all kinds of monster movies at a VERY young age. When she was 4 her and a friend were playing in a field near a cow pasture, when they ran inside bawling. When ask what was wrong, they claimed that the cows were zombies in disguise, because they went "Murrrrhhhh...." like a zombie instead of "Moo." She is still slightly suspicious of cows, three years later.

When I was little I was trying to catch a squirrel and my mom said that they were bad for you to touch. I spent many years thinking that squirrels were covered in a deadly poison and you would drop dead if you touched one.

When I was young my parents took us on a cruise. We were going snorkeling but I have always been terrified of the ocean. I was terrified that the hammerhead sharks below were going to hurt me when my dad told me that hammerheads were vegetarians. I have always believed everything my dad said as true. It wasn't until I was in my twenties that I realized that he had lied. The sad thing is I believed it so wholeheartedly I had been telling people that same thing for years. Now all the weird looks make sense to me.
