all through my childhood my brother told me that all the grit and sand in the grooves of a bouncy fun castle was actually boiling hot and burned like acid and if you didn't jump around correctly on it that you would burn your feet off..........i only kind of believed him but the result was that i was about 18 before i ever had a go on one!

My mother tells me that when I was about 2 or 3, I came running into the house crying desperately saying "I am NOT a lion! I am NOT a lion!" and I would NOT be calmed down.

She took me outside to where the neighbor kids, all older, were playing in the sandbox.

I had apparently told them it was MY sandbox and they had to leave, to which Edward replied:

"You're lyin'!"

when i was like 5 or 6, and in daycare, this one girl, joelle, told me that she had one of those big nice monster-thingies like in "the never-ending story". hers was named black beauty, and she told me that one of these nights she was going to come around to my house and all my friends' houses (at the daycare place) and we would go for a nice ride on black beauty. i actually packed and told my parents that if the doorbell rang in the middle of the night, it was for me. well, Black Beauty never came. i was absolutely crushed when joelle told me that it was all just a big lie.

When my cousin was young we told him that when he went into grade two he had to get a very large needle in the backside and only boys had to get it. We told him that if he didn't get it the police would take him to jail and he cried. Later that night we had his older sister call the house and pretend that she was a doctor making his appointment with his mom. He was soo upset that he slammed his door and cried. It wasn't until he went to grade two and never had to get the shot did he realize that we were just playing a prank.

When I was about 8 or 9 I convinced my little brother, who was about 6 or 7 at the time, that every time i sung the 'pink panther' tune a kangaroo was coming to chase him. He was so scared and I always tease him about it now!

My best friend from elementary school told us the funniest lie when we were kids, but we all believed it at the time. She was a really tiny girl, short and skinny. It was her distinguishing characteristic. Anyway, one day she told us that her mom had had a miscarriage before conceiving her (true) but that she was the fungus that grew off of the dead fetus, and that was why she was so small!

When I was small, around six or seven, we were talking about groundhog day in school. I drew pics of groundhogs and the like, and for some reason I was really into the whole 'holiday'. I came home from school and we had supper, where my father prepared a special treat: baked groundhog. My father said that that was the reason we had groundhog day-so we could eat it! It was so exciting to eat something new like that. Years later, my mother and I were talking and the truth came out. At the tender age of 18, I was told it was actually hamburger with a bit of rice in it. I was so devestated! LIES, all of it!

"I told your father you'd never forgive him for it," my mother said with a laugh.

To this day, I still have not. And I always bring it up to bug him.

In any case, I feel like a gullible little child...

My brother actually believed this. One day, we watched Pinochio, and my mom told him that when he lied, his nose would grow, just like Pinochio's... well, whenever he would say something, like "I'm hungry", or, "Lisa called me a name and hit me", he would touch his nose to make sure it wasn't growning... and still to this day, every once in a while, he taps his nose when he is talking...haha. He is almost 13 now...

When I was little, one of my favorite movies was the Disney version of Pinnochio...so I grew up believing that if I told lies, my nose would grow. My mom was always able to tell when I was lying because whenever I'd lie to her, I'd touch my nose to try & see whether or not it was growing!

My mom used to tell me that when I lied a black line would show up on my tongue. I checked in the mirror and told her I didn't see anything and she said that only adults could see it. I think I was 5 or something. I beleived it for about a year.

When I was about 14 at school me & my mate convinced this other kid that 'masturbation' meant 'mowing the lawn'. He wasn't quite convinced, so we told him to ask the deputy headmaster, not believing he'd actually do it. Next time we saw him he'd been given detention.

I used to eat FUN FEAST TV dinners alot when I was little. They were little frozen dinners that came with stupid prizes like crossword puzzles and light switch plate stickers. I once had one for dinner and I got a loony toons light switch plate sticker that had Wil E. Coyote lighting a bomb on it. Being a clever 9 year old, I brought my 4 year old sister into the room where I covered the lightswitch and told her if I flicked the switch the whole world would blow up. She proceeded to hit me and say she'd tell on me if I blew up the world. I told her she'd be dead and she yelled at me more. Then I threw the switch and started making explosion noises with my mouth and she began to scream and cry and kick the floor. While she was in hysterics I told her I was kidding. The funniest part was I did it several times after this and always achieved the same effect. Thank God for lightswitch plate stickers!

When I was younger around 8, I went fishing with my dad and his friends. His friend would cast my line, hold my pole for awhile, and then walk back to his. Soon I had a bite. I was so excited, and bragged that I was a good fisherwoman. I'm 26 now, and I just found out last year that the friend was hooking the fish for me, and letting me believe I caught it. I was crushed!

When I was about six my older sister insisted on myself and a neighbour performing her very own "cycling proficiency" test around the streets. She convinced us that she had completed this practically impossible test when she was 5, and now we had to do it, it took weeks and we still never manged to hop over a wall on our bikes or stand on the sadle but were convinced she had!

grrrrr....

When I was about 9 my friend told me that she used to have a twin sister called Abby who dies when she was little, but I couldn't say anything to her mum about it because she would get really sad and start crying. So for many years I believed her and gave her mum a sad sympathetic look whenever I saw her!
