When my dad was watching TV, sometimes people would start to curse, but then that bleeping noise would blank them out. I asked my father, and he said that the people on TV were saying naughty things. The next day, at school, we had a fire drill. The alarms were really loud and made an almost identical noise the the TV edits. I kept asking my teacher who said naughty things, which she thought was hilarious.

this isn't mine, it's something cute my sister told me a few days ago- when she was small she believed that the words in a text marked by the asterisk* were words that the author liked best of all.

When i was younger (around 5), i was with my sister in our room while she read a book to me. I dont remember why, but the book mentioned the word "formal". When i asked my sister what it meant, she hesitated. You see, we had a thing going at that time where we were trying to outsmart each other. Well, not wanting to lose, she said it was a bad word we call the "F-word". a few weeks later when my mom had a party, my dad told my sister "Tell your mom I'm in the bedroom right now and im trying to get dressed very formal" Well, when my sister told me to deliver the message, i hadn't exactly heard what my dad said, so i rushed in where my mom was sitting with her friends. I said, "mommy, mommy, daddy has a message for you" she asked what it was, and nervously i said "i'm sorry mommy, but i didn't hear him too well. All i know is that he said something about the bedroom and the F-Word." You can imagine the look on my mom's face!

I used to think that "giving someone the finger" ment to litteraly give someone THE finger. I really thought that there was a golden finger being passed around! So, when someone said " You better stop or I'll give you the finger!" I was overjoyed !

when i was about 6 or 7 i heard someone say the word "f**k" and later on asked my mum what it meant. She told me it was another word for poo....which was a bad idea really considering the next day at school i informed my teacher "you've got f***ed on!" in my innocent childish way, after observing that a seagull had pooed on her....

When i was in kindergarden, my family moved (military), so i went to 2 schools for kindergarden. Anyway, when i got there, the first thing they did was recess before school started. I met this kid, and he told me that the middle finger meant hello. So when we got to class, i walked in and flicked off everyone. I spent the next 5 weeks in a corner.

When I was little, my older brother told me that "ditch" was a swear-word. I used to call people 'stupid ditches' under my breath (stupid was also a really bad word)

I also believed that 'Fuddruckers' was a curse-word. (Fuddruckers is a restaurant, just in case you didn't know...)

i used to think that while all the kids were at school, the adults would all come out of their houses and scream curse words at the top of their lungs.

When I was little, I used to get "bastard" and "mustard" confused. I thought "mustard" was the insult. As a result, if I wanted to insult someone, I called them a "mustard"... this led to a great deal of confusion. Now, about 12 years later, me and my friends use "mustard" as an insult to people who don't know the story ("You're a mustard!").

When I was seven, I was in swimming lessons. I was getting changed back into my street clothes in my 'cubicle' when I saw the f word written on the wall.

I thought F*ck was a funny name for some kind of mushroom.

I repeated it until I was scolded by my parents and my sister and we got out of the building asap. I finally learned that f*ck meant something radically different than a mushroom.

My cousin used to babysit alot and watch MTV, refering to some of the girls as whores. I thought this was a reference to Frankenstein or something (HORror movies). I was watching a monster movie with my dad one time and called the monster a whore. He almost died laughing.

This isn't mine (seriously!) but I knew a guy who, when he was about 12, still thought the word "fuck" just meant the same thing as "shit", as I discovered when he told me a bird had fucked on his coat.

when i was about 6, my friend and i believed that there would be terrible consequences if you said a swear word. ( you'd be grounded for eternity, or you'd blow up, of the swear elves would come at night and sew your lips together) we decicded to make our own swears and not tell them to anybody so no one would be able to punish us for saying them. As i recall we had one swear for every letter. Once, we were given a time out by the 1st grade teacher, and we were so shocked that she didn't react when we called her the j,k,b,t,y,w,e,and r words.

"I'm disapointed in you two. usually you remember to use indoor voices"

"Juktre kupds, you bhugfes tyuer."
"Yeah, your a ympos werfen rebmez"

my friend used to think "dumbass" was pronounced literally, so she went around calling people a "dum-bass" right up until she was 16. She only figured out then that it was acutally "dum-arse" but a hell-of-a-lot of people thought it was hilarious when she said it!

my 2 cousins thought the words 'bad word' was actually a curse. they'd go to there mom and say 'DJ said a bad word' or something like that and she'd go crazy tring to figure out bad word

ex.

"Mom he said badword"
"What badword"
"Bad word"
"Which one?"
"Badword"

Its so funny if they argued theyd say "You little bad word!"

When I was a kid (actually, until about two years ago), my dad, my brother and I used to go skiing together almost every weekend. Well, on one of these outings, we were at the top of the hill, trying to decide which run to go down, and we noticed that one of the runs was called "FLICKER," written exactly like that, in all capital letters, except the "L" and the "I" were a little too close together, so my brother's eyes lit up as he pointed to it and said "Hey Emily, look what that hill's called!!!" My dad almost killed himself laughing. It was even funnier because, at this particular ski place (which catered to families), there were signs all over the place that said "No foul language," with a big red X through a picture of a tough-looking guy with cartoon expletives coming out of his mouth. So, my brother couldn't understand for the life of him why the people at the ski hill would break their own rule by giving one of the runs such a "vulgar" name, lol.
