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.
Until very recently, I believed that pickles were cucumbers that had gone bad. I'm 22. A few years before that, I thought they were a separate veggie that grew on their own, until a family member corrected me otherwise. My friends and fiance has not let me live it down since!
i used to think these were snakes that u put on your thumb, then i went to my dads office party and there was picking the gerkin out of the jar. i later got told that when i was about 1 i had eaten a huige gerkin, i used to think that i had a huge snake swimming around in my tummy.
I used to believe (until I was 14, actually) that a gherkin was a type of shaggy goat.
Up untill about a year ago I thought that pickles grew on a pickle tree or something!! I had no idea they were actually cucumbers, untill my mother told me.
One day as a child, my mother and I were sitting down to eat in a small diner. I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich which came with a pickle. I picked up the pickle and asked my mother, "Mommy, what animal do pickles come from?"
i thought gherkins were chinese mens brains with fish in them? i dont know? i was i phyco child
until 5 mins ago i didnt no gerkins and pickles were the same thing i thought they were completley different..........
I was in the car reading a book out loud and one of the words in it was gherkin. I pronounced it "jerkin".
Further to Debbie's misbelief about wally (gherkin) I can confirm that she was right. In certain parts of the country a gherkin is indeed a "wally",as the article below mentions briefly.

Hope that helps.
A wally really is a name for a pickled gherkin! That girl wasn't lying and is indeed wiser than you!!
