I used to think that baby chicks were removed from the eggs we eat, replaced with yolk and whites, then glued back together. Since I didn't understand the idea of conception yet, it was the only explination!!

I am 25 years old and I just found out that Key Lime Pie is not made with kiwi's and lime, but actually a yellowish lime that grows in South Florida called a key lime. It made sense to me that "Key" was obviously short for kiwi.

I am very dissapointed, because the only reason I liked Key Lime pie was because of the kiwi...

Yesterday my 12 year old daughter informed me that they now make popsicles for adults only. I told her that popsicles were for everyone, not just kids. Then I realized what she was talking about. The "shards-o-glass" anti tobacco commercial? She thought it was a real commercial for real "adults only" popsicles.

When I would go to restaurants I thought the people in the back would eat the food i didn't. So I would never eat all my food, so they could have some.

When I was little my mom told me cashews were named after Johnny cash and his shoes. I believed her for awhile and when I asked her years later she told me she had never told me that.

When I was little I asked my dad what the HOOTERS (the restaurant) was. He told me its where you go see the owls. I found out when I was 17 that was not the case!

When I was little I heard my mom say she had lost her serial code and therefore could not register some software on her computer. Wanting to help, I ripped all of our boxes of cereals apart, waiting for a cereal code to fall out.

I used to think that if I mixed my ice cream around until it was liquid and then baked it, it would turn into a cake.

Growing up back east, we often had cold-cut sandwiches of tongue. It was my mother's favorite. One day I asked her, "Mom, why do they call it "tongue" - that's kind of funny, don't you think?" When she told me that it really was sliced tongue from a cow, I stopped eating it. Years later I realized it was because I couldn't bear the thought of tasting something that was tasting me back!

When I was about 8 years old, my mom sent me to the hardware store to buy some cheesecloth. That day she made cheesecake. And for the longest time I would not eat cheesecake because I believed there was cheesecloth in it.

When I was younger I used to think that if I broke food in half all the calories would fall out. I wish that was true..

I used to think that the orange and green tictacs gave your special powers. the orange ones would make you stronger and the green ones would make you faster. so i used to eat some green ones and run around my lounge as fast as i could, then eat the orange ones and try to pick up the sofa. i wish it were true!

My dad tricked me into eating cabbage, by telling me, if I ate it I would become big and strong! So strong infact, that I could sit on any chair, grab the bottom of the chair, and pick it up! Thus floating in the air... Still doesnt work

My little brother thought that grilled cheese sandwiches were "girl-ed" cheese sandwiches and would refuse to eat them. He did however eat mom's special "boy'd" cheese sandwiches with the rest of the family.

in about 1st grade, my friends convinced me that chicken patties were made with fish. since i hated (and still dislike) fish, I never ate them again! I didnt realize this till a few years later, and I felt so dumb!
