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.

We used to go fishing for fish fingers
And, somehow, I always caught some. I'd stick my fishing net in the water, and after a while my dad would say "You've caught one", I'd pull up the net and he'd quickly plunge his hand into the net, take out something and put it in his pocket. We'd do thi a few times, then stop.

Later, when we were home, my dad would go to his coat and take several fish fingers out of his pocket, which we'd then cook and eat.

Took me years to work it out...

That's quite nice actually.

I like this but
I have a mental image of a fishfinger, bald because the breadcrumbs have fallen off but coated with pocket lint. It's not very appealing.

Then there how your dad's pockets would have smelled and that gives me far more scary images..

I think (cos he never told me)
that he hid the fishfingers in his hand when he went to get them from his cat, rather than taking them out on a daytrip.

He was weird, not insane!

and did he keep the cat in his coat pocket?

Aw that's sweet. Wish my dad had done something like that for me.
