My neighbors belief:

My neighbor's mother and father used to tell her, her two sisters, and her brother that pork was a dirty meat. I'm not really sure why they think that, but to this day not one of them has touched a piece of pork. My neighbor won't even let her husband or 2 boys eat pork.

My older brother told me that the reason apple butter is brown is because the farmers who make it spit their tobacco juice in it while it is cooking. I wouldn't eat apple butter for years afterward.

Another girl told me that vienna sausages had been cut off of little boys. I had younger brothers and it seemed believable to me. Ruined my appetite for viennas, too!

i used to believe that a kiwi fruit was a genetically modified fruit made from melon and banana (the banana being the middle). why? because my best friend told me so, so i believed her, and would never eat it after that... or until I discovered that it was a joke, and then discovered that I am illergic to kiwi fruit!

When I was about 6 my uncle used to tell my 4 year old brother and I that butter was made from snot, I never believed him but my brother being very gullible did. My mom caught him once putting some snot on a piece of toast. :)

When I was really little my cousin told me that tapioca pudding was made from fish eggs. I believed it till like age 15 when I went to Brazil and they showed us the plant the tapioca pudding came from.

when i was younger, i used to eat the top ramen noodles dry / without cooking them. my mom always told me to stop because it was bad for me, but i never listened. one day, she sat me down and looked at me very serious and told me that my doctor called and said i had worms in my stomach and it was caused from eating dry noodles....she said the doctor told her that stomach acid and dry noodles turns them into worms. i can't stand the site of top ramen noodles to this day!

top belief!

When I was younger I heard a song and one of the lines in it went "Starting over, cold turkey". I had never heard the expression 'cold turkey' before so I thought it was saying the person was starting a 'new life' and had no job at the time and could only afford cold turkey as food..

One night at dinner we had tapioca pudding for dessert. I kept begging for more pudding and my parents kept telling me no, you've had enough. Finally my dad said, "Are you sure you want more? Because the little balls in tapioca pudding are made of fish eyes." I believed that for YEARS and to this day will not eat tapioca pudding.

My brother and I were convinced that brussel sprouts were the heads of little green martians that my mom was trying to feed us (for what reason we did not know). Still to this day, twenty five years later we still call them little green martians...and have both passed this legacy on to our kids
