You know the movie 5th Element with Bruce Willis and Chris Rock? Theres a character thats all blue with tentacles and sings like its at an opera. When I first saw the movie, during the solo, I yelled out really loud, "Eew look at those testicles!!"

I still get teased for it.

Once I was watching Blockbusters and a clue came on, "What T is the name for the limbs of an Octopus", I didn't hesitate in shouting out 'Testicles', my mother found it extremely funny but I was not the wiser, I was only 9 at the time!

When I was about ten or eleven, I somehow mixed up the words "lesbian" and "leprosy." I used to be afraid of catching "lesbian" after that. One day I overheard my mom on the phone; she was talking about some woman she knew who was a lesbian, and I freaked out and started screaming at her to get away from me because I thought she'd picked up "lesbian" and I didn't want to catch the disease too!

Needless to say, I felt very silly when my mom explained my mistake.

when i was little, my mom, my little sister (6 yrs) and me were watching, "fiddler on the roof" in the part where it shows the army on horses, my little sister said, " mommy, are those the gay people?" i started laughing so hard, but my mom LIGHTLY slapped my leg, trying to hide her laughter. obviously, she didn't want to explain being gay to a 6 yr old, so she just said, " no" and went back to watching the moviee. :)

I thought that people who couldn't hear were called "death" people and that was not a very nice name for them. They couldn't hear, but they certainly weren't dead!

I thought the holiday was called "Merrychristmas" so I would tell people "happy merrychristmas"

I used to be afraid that when I have a kid I won't be able to teach it how to speak English and it would just grow up never knowing how to speak.

When I was about 10 I first came across this work "fuck" and had no idea what it meant, just that it had something to do with love. So, when we were doing a story in class in which a boy and girl meet, I told my friends afterwards, "I bet they'll fuck."...meaning, "I bet they'll fall in love and marry."

When listening to CasyKasem on America's Top 40 while growing up, I thought he always talked about such-and-such band's 'day view' album. It wasn't until my 9th grade English class that I learned d-e-b-u-t was not pronounce dee-BUTT, but in fact day-BEW, and that it wasn't a 'day view album' but a 'debut album.'

Ugh.

I used to read the dictionary. (I was a bookworm as a little kid.) One day I came across "orgy" and wouldn't you know it, I had one of those prudish dictionaries that for some words didn't go into much detail... it said something about wild parties, unrestrained, etc. and so I took it to mean just what the dictionary said - that's what the book's for, right?

O, the look on my poor dad's face when, in a particularly happy unrestrained moment of glee, his 6 yr old daughter shouted out, "let's have an orgy!"

I used to pronounce choir as chore. It was until my 5th grade teacher corrected me when the whole class was reading the passage together. And the worst thing was, I was sitting right in front of my teacher the whole time. Imagine how embarrassing it was when she had to peer out from under her book and correct me in front of everyone.

One time I got in trouble for picking up a phone without asking at my grandmother's house. She yelled at me and said," You need to ask for permission before playing with things!"
I had no idea what "permission" was. I figured that it was some kind of lotion. I thought ," Why would I need lotion to play with something?"

I always thought the old saying "spare the rod and spoil the child" was a set of two instructions rather than the warning that the child who does not get whacked occasionally will be spoiled. I much preferred that they both spared the rod AND spoiled the child - if the child was me, at any rate!

My two best friends were shopping and we passed a stand called 'The piercing pagoda' and one of my friends proclaimed "It's the Piercing Padoga!" She honestly thought it was called this. It wasn't just that she read it or said it wrong- She actually beleived the word Pagoda was pronounced Padoga.
