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.

Had to visit Granny..aged 8
Who lived 200 miles away, near Stafford.
Now in the town I lived in at the time, there was a Stafford Road. I asked why we couldn't just go down that road as it would clearly be quicker. I was told that we had to go the scenic route and tell Granny about it.
Fair enough, until I went to visit Granny on my BMX, down Stafford Road, only to end up near a dual carriageway with no signs for Stafford (obviously). And I got told off for going near the dual carriageway!!

Edit : I was aged 8...not granny ;)
