My grandpa used to tell me that eating pickles would make me grow hair on my chest. I am a girl, but I loved pickles so much I couldn't help myself! After eating a few, I would always run to the bathroom to see if I had grown any hair.

When I was a child, my friend told me that if I ate pickles regularly, I would't get the hiccups. I tried one while I had the hiccups, and it worked. Used to think that was the reason.

When my husband was little, his grandfather used to put a pickle in his bag of dill pickle chips. Everytime he got near the bottom of the bag there was one in it. After his grandfather passed away, he began to think that they didn't make them that way. When he was 18 he mentioned how dill pickle chips used to have pickles in them and that's when he finally found out that he had been tricked as a kid

My sister used to tell me that at night her and her friends would go to the grocery stores and pee in the pickle jars and that's what made them green. I believed that from the time i was 8 until I was 11.

until i read here that gherkins were the same things as pickles, i always thought they were a mythical creature like a gnome, or an elf or something. i never heard someone call a pickle a gherkin, or vice versa.

Until about five minutes ago, I did not know that pickles and gherkins were the same thing.

I thought gherkins were like gnomes.

Once, when I was like, 4, I asked my mom why there were "tails" on pickles. (By "tails" I meant the piece of the vine you get sometimes on the end of pickles.) She told me that pickles were little animals that run around and when people catch them, they pull off their arms and legs and put them in jars. Then she said that if you listened closely, you could hear the scream for help. So, at the age of 4, I could often be seen holding pickles against my ears.

When I was about 5, I always liked to eat Pickle-flavored chips. It became my favorite food. One day my Aunt Trisha told me that if you eat too many, you would turn into a pickle. I believed her... odd thing is, I kept on eating them, hoping each day that I would turn into a pickle.

My dad told me that if I ate pickles before I went to sleep I would have really bad nightmares, but I have always loved them ever since I was little, and still do.

When I was little I loved to finish the last of the dill pickles & then I'd drink the pickle juice from the jar. My Mom caught me every time & would pull it away & lecture me on how the juice would make my blood dry up inside me. I always believed that theory. I still tease her about it today now that I'm 32.
