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.

when I was about 5 or 6 I was in the living room while my mum was watching the evening news. Not sure what the report was about, but somebody mentioned lesbians, which provoked the question "mum, what's a lesbian?"
She thought about it for a second then replied with "it's someone who comes from Lesbia. You know, like if someone comes from America then they're American?"


For my next birthday one of the presents I got was a world atlas. I spent a whole day looking through it trying to find Lesbia. Eventually I asked my dad.

"dad - do you know where Lesbia is?"

dad - *confused look* "Lesbia? Never heard of it"

"Well mum told me that's where Lesbians come from!"

dad - "let me just go and ask your mum about it"

*Hushed conversation in the other room*

dad - "you shouldn't be spending all your time looking at maps. How'd you like some Star Wars figures instead?"

So I forgot all about Lesbia for several years!
