When I was younger, I used to believe that if I though bad things, like curse words, that my dad would be able to read my mind and I would get in trouble. Silly, yeh?

To all the psychic fathers out there....

when my brother was little before I was even born, my uncle would after giving him instructions say kapiece (sp?) and my brother would respond, "go piss?" so when my dad said kapiece to him my brother said "go piss?" and looked at my cousins like they were to blame

I heard this joke when I was younger and the last line of it said "And my mom's f*cking the turkey" So (being very young) I thought that the mother was standing in my gramma's kitchen flipping the turkey off and cussing at it.

This wasn't mine, but a friend's:

When my mother asked if I had done something and I answered, "Yes, Mom, I swear," he said, "Oo-oo-ooh!" I asked why, and he said, "Swearing is cursing!"

When I was roughly four I used to hear swear words and repeat them. In order to stop me embarrassing her in public places my mother told me the word 'bungalow' was a swear word. I believed this until I was eleven and got very confused when people talked about one-storey houses.

I used to think that when you swore, a beep would come out because the government was watching and they would cover it up just like on TV lol

When I was in elementary school, my grandmother told me that if I showed my middle finger to anyone it means that I hated God. So one day I saw a kid on the bus hold up his middle finger. I said to my friend, "he hates God." She was confused.

I said "Cheeses!" in front of nuns n they askd me to repeat the word so I repeat it and said its Cheeses as in the cheese we eat.
After a few years I came to realize that it was really Jesus! instead of Cheeses!.

I'm thinking I was 3 or 4, maybe 5 at the outmost, but I thought the word "fart" refered to something that looked like a purple kangaroo. I knew about passing gas, but just didn't know that that's what the word "fart" meant.

When I was younger, I was playing with a friend who wanted to tell me a secret. She asked me to swear that I wouldn't tell anyone. I replied that I wasn't allowed to swear.

When I was about 10, I got my first tiny tiny tv in my room. Me and a friend were watching it one morning and it was the Jerry Springer Show and we were hooked! (I know! It was bad to watch that junk so young). After we saw like 5 episodes we would tie our shirts up all slutty and say every cuss word there was because we seriously thought it was cool. But we never did it in front of anyone but the two of us!

i used to think that by saying "shut up" in school the principal would call the cops and then have you arrested. apparently one day there was a gas leak in my neighborhood and i said shut up in school earlier that day so when the cops came to evacuate us i thought he was coming after me.

I used to believe that if you spelled the swear words, it wasn't the same as saying them. I assumed it "didn't count". But just to make sure, I hid under my bed when I said them.
