I used to believe a cornucopia was corn on the cob with many other vegetables around it, because I misheard "horn" as "corn" when I was learning what it was, and I think the name didn't help, either.

corn of plenty?

My brother used to believe that you can't eat veggies because they have bugs in it!!! He saw a bug eating spinach and the supermarket and got freaked out so much that he called for the nearest employee to whack the bug with the leek he had in his hand! He was 4 at that time!

My mom told me that cannoli had earwax in it, so i wouldn't eat all the cannoli when we ate out. This backfired when my brother asked the waiter why there is earwax in cannoli. The waiter said there is no earwax in it and my mom was trying to scare us into not eating it. Then my brother threw canolli at her face and we started eating lots of it.

I used to think that spaghetti had poison in it that could only affect little kids. My mom told me this so she could eat it all herself. I believed it for many years.

For some reason I used to think that Spam (canned meat) was manure in a tin. I became very confused when someone told me that they had eaten Spam and hated the taste of it, because I couldn't think of any reason why they would be eating manure.

Random little tidbit as i'm eating my fav type of pudding over here...it's tapioca--i'm really a sucker for anything vanilla flavored, but anyway--different tangent, haha...my Grandpa Jones, back when i was a kid, told me once that the tapioca pearls were frog eggs...i remember how blown my mind was that i was eating them...To this day, anytime i eat tapioca pudding I think of the nostalgia tied to it...Oh memories [3!

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.
