When I heard of the last name Armstrong, I thought it was the name given to people with strong arms and that last names involving body parts were common, for instance a woman with big eyes might be called "Molly Eyebig".

This is not me, but my father. We live in a small town with a volunteer fire department and so whenever the fire department is needed, a siren goes off.

Well, one day, I heard a siren that sounded like the normal siren only distant and my father claimed that the neighboring town had a "shark siren".

My mother thought that sounded a bit weird, and then my father realized that he'd probably been lied to as a kid and bought it all his life! (He's 45, so he'd be believing the lie for decades!). He suspected either his parents, or this one friend he's had for a long time were the ones to lie to him.

I used to believe Monty Hall was a place instead of a man. Let's Make A Deal was before my time and I only knew Monty's name from the Monty Hall problem. I thought "Monty Hall" was the building where the game show took place.

too much game shows

I was born at a hospital named after its founder, who had the same last name as me (not related), so I used to believe there was a hospital for each family name.
