As a child I believed that hamburgers were called handburgers because you held them in your hands. After my sister corrected me, I then decided that the meat must be ground ham. Made sence to me!

Because my brothers tormented me, I thought that blueberries had worms. They would squeeze the blueberries just right and they would ooze and kinda look like worms were coming out. I refused to eat them and hate them to this day!

My mom used to cook whole, shelled shrimp (heads and all) in soups and stuff. And I always thought their eyeballs were what made peppercorns.

When I was five, I told my mom my theory that sausage meat came from lions. She just went with it and I think I held that belief for a while.

When I was little, I thought chocolate mousse, was chocolate mouse. I remember the first time I ordered it I told my mom I wanted the head, because I didn't think mouse tail would taste good even when covered in chocolate.

When I was younger I used to believe that broccoli was tiny trees that little elves cut down. Because of that it was my favorite food. I wanted the little elves to always have a job. Even now knowing broccoli is just a veggie grown its still my favorite. I am definitely going to tell my kids that they are still tiny trees :)

At the age of four I decided that I wanted to be a vegetarian, so my parents told me that all meat came from animals that died of natural causes. I was also told that liver was a vegetable and that it was only called liver because it resembled the organ in question. I believed this until I was about ten...

When my brother and I were little, we believed that lemons were sweet because any time we had something with lemons in it, it was sweet. We believed that until our Dad brought home a lemon and gave us a slice. I took one bite and accused him of injecting soap into it!

When I was little I heard my mom say she had lost her serial code and therefore could not register some software on her computer. Wanting to help, I ripped all of our boxes of cereals apart, waiting for a cereal code to fall out.
