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 6, I got bitten by an aphid or a ladybird or something. My cousin told me the only cure was to eat dog biscuits. I was a fat, omniverous child too - so unfair.

When I was pushing 19, my family was having a discussion about childhood pets, specifically my rabbit - 'Bill'. "You do realise Bill was a girl rabbit, don't you?" says Mum, as the rest of the family nod conspiratorially. "We didn't want to tell you in case you got upset."
So to my ex-girlfriends, it's not my fault. Relational issues? THEY TOLD ME SHE WAS A BOY!

PostScript: 'Bill' didn't "go up to rabbit heaven peacefully in his/her sleep". The poor, androgenous bunny contracted an infection that ate its genitals.
