This is a question What nonsense did you believe in as a kid?

Ever thought that you could get flushed down the loo? That girls wee out their bottoms? Or that bumming means two men rubbing their bums together? Tell us about your childhood misconceptions. Thanks to Joefish for the suggestion.

"Being attacked very badly"
As a kid I liked to stay up late and watch the news with mum and dad.

A report of a vicious rape comes on the News at 10.

Me: "Mum, what does rape mean?".

Mum: "errmm, means to be attacked very badly".

2 weeks later I was (genuinely) attacked very badly by an Alsatian dog.

Imagine the hilarity when I told my less innocent peers and school teachers that I had been "raped very badly by a big Alsatian dog". I retold the story well into my teens until someone was kind enough to reveal the true meaning.

oh dear.

first post (as a born again b3taean) - be gentle.

My mum told me it was when a man forced a woman to marry him
Which kind of satisfied me, but I couldn't work out how that was possible. I mean, did he have a vicar on stand-by? And surely women would learn to be wary of men prowling the streets carrying large tiered cakes?

Misinforming children for one's personal amusement is ace.

My nephew thinks that sheep come from the woolen "seeds" you find in fields.

You can also tell them
that the black bags you see in fields about this time of year are cow eggs. Freak the little bugger out.

Nice post
Not the rapey bit obviously....but you get my drift.
