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.

This one was awful
As a small annoying sprog of a child I was completely enthralled by the simple pleasures of ice cream. So much so, in fact, that I was known in our village as the ice cream van chasing boy.

My mother decided to counter this by telling me that when the ice cream van went past with it's nasty horrible jingly tune playing and damaging our inner ears, that the song meant the ice cream man had run out of ice cream!

I did in fact believe this until I was 17 because no-one saw fit to tell me otherwise.

My sister was also told that if she opened the car window she would get sucked out just like in an aeroplane.
