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.

how about lies your teachers told you
our chemistry teacher - in order to reinforce the "waft and sniff" method when smelling chemicals - went up to my friend Gary with a bottle and said "have a sniff, it's perfume". Gary has a big whiff and falls off his stool. "That was ammonia," says teacher as Gary's eyes are streaming and he's gagging on the floor, "so remember to waft it with your hand rather than sniffing it directly."

Mind you, Gary did let the locusts out of the locust box, so he had it coming.
