This is a question Lies Your Parents Told You

I once overheard a neighbour use the phrase "nig nog". I asked my father what it meant. As quick as a flash he said, "It's a type of biscuit. A bit like a hobnob." Can you beat this? BTW: We're keeping this thread open for an extra week as we're enjoying the stories so much.

Not a lie by my parents but by a primary school teacher.
This happened when I was 7 or 8.

We had this right old battle-axe of teacher for religous education.

She explained why there were black and white people in the world was that in the Garden of Eden there was this pool for the 4 children of Adam and Eve to wash themselves.

They all got filthy dirty and the first two used up all the water so the other two were left black from then on!

This was back in the un-PC and "unenlightened" days of the 60's so the attitudes behind it seem all the more appalling as we did have some Afro-Carribean kids in the class!
