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.

The Curse of Age
My dear old Nan, who seems to be going battier with each passing year, has dropped a fair few clangers in her time... but Christmas this year became all the more of a hoot when she announced to us that she was glad that nobody has received Wine Gums, Jelly Babies or Liquorice All-Sorts for Christmas, and that she never wanted us to buy them again.

"Is this because of Grandad's diabetes Nan?" I asked, innocently. "No." came the terse yet sincere reply. "If you buy those sweets you're helping Osama Bin Laden. He owns the factories, and the profits go directly to the Taliban."


I didn't have the heart to tell her, as she wolfed down her family-sized chocolate bar, that Cadburys are owned by the self-same confectionary group as the others...
