This is a question What nonsense did you believe in as a kid?

Ever thought that you could get flushed down the loo? That girls wee out their bottoms? Or that bumming means two men rubbing their bums together? Tell us about your childhood misconceptions. Thanks to Joefish for the suggestion.

I once got thrown out of art class, without realising why until later on in the day.
The teacher asked "What is name of the technique used for using your fingers to smudge pencil/paint? As demonstrated of this painting? [a picture of women, but I can't remember the name] by [artist name] ?"

My arm shot up. Mr Big Bollocks here knew the awnser, and the teacher was in her late 20s, so some brownie points never went a miss.

"I know miss ! It's fingering ! [Artist Name] has fingered [lady in the photo] in this painting".

The class errupted in laughter and the teacher threw me out for the lesson. I had no idea what I had done wrong, ok, so I got the wrong awnser, that's no reason to thow me out though. When the bell went for the lesson to end, the teacher called for me to come in, and could see that I was quite shocked, not knowing what I did wrong, she said to me "Do you really not know what you did wrong here?",
"I donno miss, it was just a guess, using your fingers to smudge the paint, fingering sounded like an arty thing".
She then went completely red and said "Ok Paul, I'm really sorry, go and ask [one of my more maturer friends], and he'll tell you what happened. I'm really sorry, I thought you were being rude".

When my mate Dan explained it to me, I was horrified at what I said. Oddly enough, people only took the piss out of me for a few days, it didn't really catch on as something to tease me about.

Christ. I hope you've got some big name celebrities signed up.
I wouldn't have risked anything earlier than 2015.
