when i was at the age of 6 or so, i went to kids church (kinda like sunday school) and the conversation for that day was not to say Gods name in vein. well it was obviously clear that i didnt know what vein meant... at that point i thought it meant we were never to say it or it would be bad... so when we were at the dinner table saying our prayers my dad ended it with "in Jesus name i pray" and i stopped him abruptly and said "Dont say that! Its a bad word!" he stared at me with a confused look. soon my mom corrected me that its okay to say it but not as a swear word. im teased to this day and i can tell u right now i never say his name in vien :D

wait a gosh darn minute

When I was like 5, I heard the B word and I thought it sounded at LOT like peach so I beleived it wasn't a bad word but it still meant that you hated them. So when I was angry at my Mom, I called her the B word. Then my dad got angry at me and all that. So I found it was a bad word.

I used to believe that every time I said a bad word, tiny invisible elves would walk over and pinch me really hard.

My mother told us that "mousketeer" and "kimosabe" were bad words. This was after we'd driven her nuts recreating scenes from "The Lone Ranger" and "Mickey Mouse Club." We believed her. I can only imagine how ridiculous we looked calling someone a "Mousketeer" in total anger.

At the age of about five, I was in the car with my parents, when someone cut us off. My father called the other motorist an asshole. I asked why the guy was a "donkey hole" and got in trouble.

Later that year, I said "son of a bitch" because I heard my cousin say it...and got in trouble. Since a literal son of a bitch would be a puppy, I was afraid to mention puppies around adults for months.

I used to think that flipping someone the bird was called "f*cking them off." Additionally, someone once told me that "reller" was a euphemism for "sh*t," and I believed it.

I was in primary school but hanging out with the 'older' girls... my little sister came over to me and asked me to play a skipping game with her and I told her to 'F*ck off'. I'd never even used those words before and had no idea where they had come from! But the older girls were saying it... My sister's eyes filled with tears and she walked away but ended up falling over and cut her knee. I felt instantly remorseful and felt like it was all my fault she got hurt. So I swore (pardon the pun) I'd never swear again. I now believe it's biologically impossible for me to swear!

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?

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.
