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.

Insurance scam
Reading caldini's story just reminded me, we had been moving house on a rainy day and when the removal van arrived at our new place we found that the roof had been leaking and soaked our sofa and a lot of other bits and pieces.

The removal guy was very apologetic and had said that he would vouch for anything we needed to replace on insurance. My dad being the crafty bugger that he is decided that a new television was in order, despite the fact that it seemed untouched by the downpour - and to make it more convincing he'd given it a tap with a hammer, cracking the screen.

All was well and good and my parents had taken Polaroids of all the ruined items, ready to send off to the insurance company. Luckily, I asked to see them just before they went in the envelope and they all looked good in the photos, no problems at all - except for the large sledgehammer resting against the side of the cracked television. My dad the criminal mastermind.
