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.

pour homme.
When I was about 7, I remember my dad going to do a job in America(Americans suck with a capital S). He's a joiner and he was fitting some cabinets in a perfume shop. He was away for about 3 days and came back bearing glorious gifts. He had loads of little sample bottles of purfume which i guess the shop gave him(chances are he nicked it)
Anyway...me and my mum recieved loads of differnt samples and I found one that I really liked. It was called Joop. So for ages I wore it untill it ran out. I had some funny looks so i asked my dad if it was aftershave... "Dad, is this aftershave?"
"No, why?"
"Doesn't matter." heard nothing of it untill..
In year seven when I started to study the subject of french. One day we were learning about men and women and oh the irony when my teacher said "Homme means MEN"
Then i went into a flashback... I remembered myself looking at the bottle of Joop...main text saying JOOP and then underneath that it said...POUR HOMME! OH MY GOOD GOD! *END*
