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.

Just remembered a lie
and a big one at that. Told to thousands I'd guess, by parents, but mostly primary school teachers I'd guess. The lie of the fake rainbow.
Remember they made us sing that rainbow song? I was horrified when I realised (during AS physics) that I knew 2 rainbows, the real version and the song version, and this had never clicked in my brain. If we were to believe the song then instead of:
red orange yellow green blue indigo violet
we'd have:
red and yellow and pink and green, orange and purple and blue...(I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow too)....
