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.

Mister Whippy
My mom told me that when the Ice Cream van was playing music, it meant that the owner had crudely assembled a broadcast quality microphone and a 12V car amplifier into a wind up musical jewellery box using Sellotape and Blu-Tack, and it was all bundled into a Nabisco biscuit tin and riveted under one of the refridgeration units. Imagine my suprise when I grew up and discovered there were actually professional, commercially built units available!
