When I was about 5 or 6 and my sister was about 16 or 17 she had a lot of friends who came over for slumber parties and what not. Well one, who was a rather tall girl, at least 6'0 or so use to tell me that I was so cute that she could eat me up. She used to kiss me sometimes too and I thought this was her either her tasting me or trying to eat me!

I would hide when she came over. Being the small boy I was I thought that she could have easily swallowed me whole!

When i was younger i was unaware of soybeans. This lead to the idea that soy sauce came from... elephants! Specifically, it was a byproduct of when they farted. So it was some mans job to stand at the elephants rear and bottle this stuff. It never concerned me and i didn't stop eating it. Ah, the young fertile mind.

When I was little I knew that it was illegal to drink & drive, however I thought it was illegal to drink anything (pop, water, juice, etc.) which also made me think that it was illegal to eat & drive. so everytime my praents and I went through a fast food drive through and ate in the car I would get really scared we'd get arrested.

I used to believe that "tentacles", like on a squid, were pronounced "testicles". I mortified my father one night at a restaurant. He was eating Calamari and I loudly asked him, "Dad, don't the testicles get stuck on your teeth?". It was a very crowded restaurant. Several tables around us started laughing and he turned bright red.

When I was about 5, I thought that apples were made in factories. Every time I would eat one, I would first examine it and try to find a seam in the skin. It was the most baffling thing to me. My father later told me that we went to an apple festival where I watched the apples go by on a conveyor belt. Apparently that's where I got the idea. :)

On the peanutbutter stood: expirationdate: see botton.

So I thought when I was 3: If you use the peanutbutter and you scratch with your knife on the bottom (so you could SEE the botton), the peanutbutter wasn't usable anymore.

I used to belive that BBQ Ribs came from humans. When my older sister and dad ate them i closed my eyes, thinking of the person who gave up a rib for them to eat. I though all the way till i was 12!

I used too believe that if after you ate a bowl of ice-cream, you stirred the empty bowl very quickly with your spoon, that more ice-cream would magically appear. This was based on information given to me by my friend who was two years older than me and obviously winding me up!

Almost forgot about this one. As a child, I hated the tastes of both coffee and stuffing. Sometimes when my sister and I were misbehaving, my dad said, "You know what? I'm going to take you to the Coffee and Stuffing resteraunt!" I thought for years that such a place existed!

I used to believe that grilled cheese sandwiches were actually called "girl" cheese sandwiches. I thought it was so unfair that restaurants didn't have boy cheese sandwiches too.

I never had a problem with green beans until I saw a Jolly Green Giant can. After that, I thought it was grass in a can. I didn't eat it for years, and now I still don't like them, even though I know it's not grass.

I used to believe that waffles were made by tiny elves scooping holes out of pancakes. I also thought that's where doughnut holes came from.

I used to think that the author, Steven Kellogg, who wrote children's books such as "'Pecos Bill", "Jimmy's Boa", and "Applelard and Liverwurst", was in any way related to a certain cereal company of the same name. This also lead me to believe that, maybe, if you bought one of his books, it would come with a coupon for a free box cereal.
