My dad once told me that every potato we had ever eaten was grown in his ear.

When my sister and brother and I where younger our parents would make liver and onions for dinner not mentioning acutally that it was "LIVER". One day we asked them to make that good steak with the onions. To our suprise we had been eating liver and onions thinking it was steak and onions the whole time!

I remember my mother telling me that I would grow potatoes in my ears if I didn't clean them. I didn't want to eat potatoes for a long time after that, for fear of whose ears she harvested them from!

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.

I've been eating poppyseed danishes ever since I was little, and my father used to joke that I was eating a pastry full of ants. I believed him, so whenever someone asked me what I was eating, I declared, "Ants!" I thought I was really brave and cool for eating them.

I had my sister convinced that SPAM meant 'Squashed Pig and Moggy'. She refused to eat spam for a good 5 years claiming that it contained cat. Curiously, she never told my parents the reason why she refused to eat it.

I once worked with a man, who though he was in his late '30's still lived with his mother. One day at lunch he completely flipped out. He had found a spot of mold on the bread of his sandwich, and thought it was a lethal poison. He had never seen moldy bread before, and thought someone was trying to kill him. We calmed him down eventually, but we were a little traumatized, too. We thought he was a little weird before, but the 'mold incident' really blew our minds.

Naive child that I was, my mother convinced me that liverwurst was made from apples to get me to eat it (apples - yum; liver - yuck). She teased me for years about fooling me into eating it and I still don't fully trust her anymore... oh well.

During the African famine of 84 and 85, my mum served me up these ice cream things covered with chocolate. I would not eat them as they looked like tits and thought that the tits were cut off from dead women and shipped over here for puddings.

at some point when I was a kid I looked at a box of cereal and read that it had 454 "germs" instead of grams. I wouldn't eat cereal for a while after that, because I thought I'd get sick.

I thought that Elmer's Glue was OK to eat because it said "Borden" on the label, showed a cow (actually a bull) on the label, and it was white like milk.

My sister told me that Crisco was frosting and I believed her because thier was a big frosted cake on the can, so i ate a huge spoonful of it. After the first bite, I realized just how mean sisters can be.

When I was about five, my sister had a can of Mountain Dew. I tried to sneak a drink, and when she caught me, she told me that it had pieces of lasagna in it. As a kid, I hated lasagna and from that day on, I never drank Mountain Dew again. I was well into my young teen years before realizing Mountain Dew was not actually made from lasagna (and still don't drink it to this day, thirty years later)!

For as long as I can remember I have not liked onions. Since my daddy did he would always try to sneak them into my food. One day, I was about five, he made chicken and fried potatoes for me and mom. When I asked him if there were onions in it he looked me dead in the eye and said "eat 'em, they'll put hair on your butt". For the next few years of my life I checked my backside every night before bed just in case I accidentally ingested a piece of onion. To this day I wont even touch them. I am 23.
