When I was younger (BTW I live in Canada) I used to believe that the last line of "O Canada" was
O Canada, we stand our guard, and pee!
When really it was
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
"And to the republic, for britches stands" was what I thought it was. Someone told me the real thing, but I never found out what britches were.
"...and to the Repulblic, sandwitches stands..."
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the nation for Richard Stands, one nation, under God, invisible, with liberty and justice for all."
In pre-school, receiting the Pledge of Alleigance let me to believe that there was a very powerful man named Richard Stands ("and to the republic, for which it stands") who controlled the country, or possibly had the country founded as a gift to him.
When I was in 2nd grade I had a boy in my class that tended to ask many questions. One morning before we said the Pledge Of Allegience, the teacher asked us to put our hands over our hearts. The boy turned toward the teacher and commented,"Mine isn't as big as yours."
I am canadian, and when I was 10, I moved to washington DC. everyday at the begining of school, we said the pledge of allegiance, and my dad made me believe that if you knew it by heart, you automatically became American. I actually started crying because I liked being a Canadian and didn't want to become an American. (I was and incredibly gulible child)
I used to think the pledge went "And to the Republic for *Richard Stands*, *Wanation*, Under God, with Liberty and Justic *Frall*"
In Elementary school I though one of the lines in the pledge went....."for Richardson, one nation, under god, with liberty and justice for all!"
Funny thing is....Richardson was the name of my Elementary school!
In The Star Spangled Banner, when I was little I thought the first line was "Jose, Can you see?" instead of "Oh Say can you see?" I thought they were singing it to a Spanish boy...
in first grade i thought the pledge was "...and to the republic, for riches stands..." and i remember getting so mad at the girl next to me for doing "which it stands". i found out in 3rd or 4th grade i was wrong all along.
I thought the Pledge of Allegiance was "to the United Steaks of America," and that we were saying it to cows.
When I was in kindergarten to 2nd grade, I used to think that pledge was "And to the republic, where witches stand". Then, finally in 3rd grade, I realized that is was "And to the republic, for which it stands"
When I was younger, I thought the words "Under God" were "Underdog" I always thought that meant something about the U.S. being younge.r then other countries. What's even worse is, when I went to visit my cousins, who don't live in the U.S., I took my flag and said the pledge, very wrong, every day!
I used to think the pledge went: "and to the republic, for which it stands, under dog, invisable...". I always wondered why they mentioned dogs!
I used to think that the pledge of allegience was '.. and to the republic where witches stand (one nation) under God...' I though that a country of witches lived in the space under God's chair!
This isn't my story, but my friends little sister's story. Anyway, she's about 9 years old and she thinks the end of the pledge goes something like this: "With liberty, and justice for all. You may be seated." She thinks that because when they say it over the intercom at school every morning they always say "you may be seated" at the end.
...And to the republic, for Richard stands...
My teacher in first grade or kindergarten informed us that we had to take off our hats (Except the girls didn't have to because of some rule that women's hats went with their outfit so they didn't have to take off their hat.) This was in about 1990.
I believed this for a few years and, upon deciding whether or not to wear a hat that day, I would always decide, "No, I'll save this and wear it for the flag salute."
GREAT STUFF Up until about 2nd grade, i thought the pledge procceded something like this:
"I pledge alegence, to the frog, of theUnited States of America, and to the wee public, for witches hands, one nation, under God, invisible, with a little tea, and just rice for all!"
