I thought if you found a really long fry in your Happy Meal, you could turn it into McDonald's for money.

When I was little, I used to believe that anything that was "sugar-free" or "diet" would give you diarrhea, cause I thought the symbol used for those things looked like a toilet flushing.

my aunt told me that if i put a pickle seed in the ground that it would grow into a pickle tree, so my best friend and I planted one and waited for the longest time for our pickle tree to grow .....needless to say, it never grew

My parents convinced my sister that haggis was a scottish creature. There were two types of haggis. The low-land haggis was long and thin with short legs so they could hide in rabbit holes when being hunted. The highland haggis was round and fat with the left hand legs longer than the right. The reason for this was so the haggis could stand on the side of hills comfortably and the way you would catch them is by chasing them from in front so that they'd turn around and fall over and two men would be waiting at the bottom of the hill with nets to catch them.

Around the age of six, I got a piece of gum stuck in my hair... my mom got it out using peanut butter. This made me jump to the conclusion that peanut butter was NOT a food, but gum-remover. I was shocked to see my best friends eating 'hair remover' sandwiches at lunch the next day...

To get me to eat my veggies, my mom told me that rabbits could see really well in the dark, like night vision, because they ate so many carrots. I would watch my pet rabbit, Ozzy, at night to see if he did anything special with his night vision. His eyes glowed red so I got very excited.
The next day I ate a ton of carrots and stayed up past dark trying to see if my eyes would glow red.

When I was really young I used to say "Are we going to Bob Heavens?" So now instead of saying Bob Evans we just say Bob Heavens

When i was about 6 i used to love weetabix. then an older friend of mine (i think she was 7-but she seemed like a grown up to me) told me that they put ants in it to make it taste nice. i have honestly never touched the stuff since (and im now 19)

I once believed that there was a man in the toaster who "bought" bread and paid for it in toast. I thought the wait was so he could inspect the bread before paying. Once, our toaster broke down and I thought the man stopped buying from us because the bread was in bad condition.

I used to believe that "Old Dutch" potato chips were called "Old Ouch" because the old-style "D" looked like an "O," and words that have "tch" are pronounced the same as "ch." I never even noticed the T. I believed it until, one day in sixth grade, I was telling my mom something about them, and I said "Old Ouch" and she didn't know what I meant. She still teases me about it sometimes.

Sometimes, when you order pizza, the pizza makers put something in the middle of the pizza that sort of looks like a little table. To this day I have no idea what it's for, but when I was little, I used to believe it was a table for a dollhouse, and was included with the pizza as the meal's free toy!

When I was littlle my favorite food was Roast Beast! I would order this anytime we went to a restaurant much to the delight of my parents and the wait staff who were always laughing at me. I always imagined roast beast came from a very large purplish animal with a horn. When I finally found out it was "beef" the meal was never quite as exciting again.

When I was young, my mom told me that in order to eat chinese food, you had to use chopsticks. I didn't think this was right, but hey, if mom says it, it has to be right. I tried to learn how t use chopsticks, but I couldn't. I tried to learn every day until my fifth birthday. That night, I woke up at 10:00 to get a glass of water, and my mom was eating sweet and sour chicken with a fork. I cried for 2 hours because my mom lied to me. I never eat chinese food now or else I will break into tears. I miss chinese food, but I don't miss my mom

My mom used to use a ricer to mash potatoes. The potatoes come out in a thin stream, and I thought that you cut the stream in little pieces and that's how you got rice.

I used to belive that to make icecream you had to feed a snowman whatever flavour you liked, murder it and scoop out its insides.

I sometimes have trouble hearing so when I was young I always thought that grill cheese sandwiches were called "girl" cheese sandwiches. Since both girls and boys like them, I didn't understand why they called them that.
