I thought penis was spelled “Penus”, Like “Venus” but with a P.
I used to believe the word shoes was spelled shouse. It looked right to me...
I was confused by the word "lowly". One of the earliest places I saw it was in a Neopets mini-game where you collected fictional fruits called "Neggs" and the lowest value one was the happy negg, stated in the description as the "lowly happy negg". I thought "lowly" was pronounced with the ow rhyming with cow and it meant "happy".
When I was little I used to believe that URDU is the most spoken language in the world
When grown-ups said "this morning", I thought they were saying "tiss morning"
When grown-ups said "newspaper", I thought it was two words: "new" and "spaper"
But really, my hearing is okay.
I used to believe that cosmic was the same word as cosmetic and wondered how stuff in space was related to makeup and beauty products.
I thought that "ass" was just a rude word for one's body, rather than specifically meaning the posterior. I thought this because of how people say "Get your ass out of here" when they want someone to get out.
I found the term "mad scientist" confusing, as I didn't know that "mad" could also mean crazy, so I was left wondering what all these scientists were so pissed off about.
I thought that "cocky" was a bad word since it has "cock" in it
I used to believe that "tranquilizer" was short for "tranquilizer dart".
