Up until I was about 15, I thought that the spoons that came with McDonald's Mcflurry's were straws. Needless to say, I was frustrated when, time after time, I couldn't get any ice cream to go up the straw.

I always knew that hamburger was made out of cows, but I was very upset when I found out that the cow actually had to die. Before finding that out, I thought that huge chunks of flesh were scooped off of living cows, and that they survived this procedure.

My sister used to tell me that bananas were grown straight and that they were sent to the north pole and bent by a man known as the banana bender. So when we used to get straight bananas she used to say that the banana bender didn't do his job i believed this from when I was three to six!
I used to think that hummus was made out of eggs because I heard that hummus was made out of chickpeas and I assumed thay were eggs.
When i was a child my parents told me:
"You must eat a lot of food if you want grow and become as tall as your dad!"

For this lore i eated as an insane boy.
Up until I was 10 I used to believe turkey was vegetarian.

Whenever we ate shepherd's pie for dinner my mam would tell me that there was a shepherd in every shepherd's pie so that I'd eat it, since I didn't like the dish. When I was finished but hadn't found the shepherd, my dad would say that he'd eaten it by mistake. This fooled me for years.
