My wife gets a real kick out of this, when I was young I believed that if you ate frozen bread you would get worms. She uses frozen bread to cool soup for the kids.

There are so many foods when I open the freezer. So I used to believe freezers can produce food.

When I was five or six my dad told me that if I ate the hole in the donut I would get a hole in my belly and the donut would come out. I loved donuts and would eat as close to the hole as I could with out breaking it. I did this for about five years even after many people including my dad told me it was not true. I remember being very scared the first I ate the entire donut.

I'm not sure what age I was, somewhere between 6 to 8, & was watching telly and got an incredible shock to see bananas been picked of trees. I had somehow got it into my head that bananas were made of milk and the banana skin was the packaging!

When I was little, I was sitting with my siblings eating bacon when they began to tell me that bacon came from pigs I became quite distraught and insisted that it came from the grocery store.

When I was around 7, my stepdad told me that the sausage used on pizza was really rabbit droppings. I only believed it for a couple more years, but I think it affected me subconsciously because sausage is still the only pizza topping I don't like.

I used to believe that cookie monster actually ate all of the cookies really fast. When my parents pointed out that he would just break them up and throw them all over, I was crushed.

I used to believe when I was three that when sausages sizzled it meant they were farting.

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!
