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.

Concorde's Nose
I was watching an Airshow on TV a few years ago (i.e. at the age of 28) and Concorder was making a visit, doing a flyby then landing etc.

As it was taxi-ing along the runway with it's pointy nose down I remember this thought entering my head along the lines of:

"Ah, it'll be needing to have a drink in a minute"

Rewind the clock to me at the age of six asking my parents why Concorde had a bent nose and my dad told me - after a long pause - that it was so it could drink water through it.

This fact was duly filed away, uncorrected, for 20 years until that day!
