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.

"I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine."
That's a line from "One Night In Bangkok" (from the musical, "Chess"). When I heard it in the car one day (aged about 7), I asked my Dad what it meant.

He told me that in International chess matches, the players sometimes kicked each other under the table to try and put each other off...

I grew up thinking chess was a contact sport.
