When I was a child, I was confused by the President's Choice brand. I didn't know how they found out all of the president's favorite things and if they switched them every four years.

I used to sincerely believe that buffalos had small wings... probably until I was about 15.

When I was little, my grandparents used to take me to a restaurant that had buffalo burgers, so I knew a Buffalo was kind of like a cow. I also liked to eat chicken wings but liked buffalo wings better. I was sorely disappointed to learn that a chicken and buffalo wing was the same and that Buffalo (Bison) did not, in fact, have little wings.

When I was little we would sometimes eat at Friendly's, a small restaurant like Applebee's except that Friendly's had all these great ice creams and desserts. I would always order the "Clown Sundae" for dessert... an upside-down ice cream cone in a bowl with the vanilla scoop as the head, the pointy cone like a hat, whipped cream around the back (like white clown hair) and M&Ms & chocolate syrup for a face.

I used to get really sad and cry because I didn't want to kill the clown by eating it. I would talk to it sadly as it slowly melted into a puddle, and once I was sure it was dead and wouldn't feel anything I would eat the candy bits, whipped cream and soggy cone out of the melted mess. It made me sooo sad. :(

I'm not 30 and to this day, the Clown Sundae (and pancakes with faces on them) makes me sad.

I used to be paranoid of finding a baby chick instead of a yolk in my eggs. I got this idea that all eggs had baby chickens inside them. also, we had recently been learning in class about certain animal behaviors such as overprotective mothers. thus, when my grandma showed me an ostrich egg I warned her not to eat it or the chicken's mommy would come get her.

We were talking at the dinner table about the difference between butter and margarine. I asked what margarine was made out of and my Dad replied, "wolf fat". I beleived this until i was an adult!

I used to think that our family of only girls had "girl" cheese sandwiches. While the houses that only had boys had "boy" cheese sandwiches. Later I learned that in Missouri we are lazy speakers and no one enunciated "grilled."

I thought that the peaches and pears in fruit cocktail were carrots and potatoes so I would only eat the grapes and cherries.

When I was little I thought that my body was hollow and when I ate the food would fill it up. When it reached my throat that's when I would get sick and throw up all the food so that I was hollow again!

My mother used to tell us kids that the potassium in a banana was concentrated at the bottom. If we didn't eat the blackish part at the bottom then we were wasting all the nutrients.

I used to believe that if you ate a lot and kept eating that the food would stack up out of your stomach, through your esophagus and then your throat.

When I was little I thought grilled cheese sandwiches were called girled cheese sandwiches and told my little brother that he couldn't eat them. He could have boy'd cheese sandwiches.

Before I could read, I used to believe Pringles were called 'Man Chips' because of the cartoon male face that was on the logo.

When I was 5 I thought 'in a nutshell' meant that you are actually going in a nutshell. Like pistachios and such. Pretty silly.

When I was little I thought fish fingers were human fingers battered hence why I called them "fish-a-finger".

When I was small I thought Shepherd's Pie was made out of dead shepherds! I cried in a restaurant when I was forced to finish my meal!

When I was a kid, I thought that those wooden 'honey ladles' were actually complex devices made out of honey and honeycomb themselves, instead of just being unique wooden utensils.

My brother used to believe that his stomach was divided into alphabetised compartments. This was very convenient when he didn't want to finish his dinner but still had space in the 'i' compartment for ice-cream!
