  • Santa, Easter Bunny, the usual stuff.
  • My favorite in this category actually came from my grandmother. She said that if you went outside and sat down on the ground, you would catch a cold (presumably only in the cold months). A companion piece of advice was that if you went outside without a hat on, especially with wet hair, you would catch pneumonia. So of course, to plague her [another one of her expressions], we would run outside with no hats on and sit down on the ground. :o)
  • I was told if I didn't eat my carrots I would go blind.
  • Hmm... My favorite is that chocolate milk comes from brown cows and that it IS possible for someone's face to freeze that way.
  • My mother lied to me about who my father was!
  • That if i bit my fingernails a hand would grow in my stomach and choke me. Seriously.
  • My Dad used to tell me that if I didn't eat the crust of the bread of my sandwich that I would never grow chest hair and shave my face like grown men.
  • That if I didn't clean my ears, potatoes would grow in them.
  • If you cross your eyes they will get stuck crossed.
  • * If you swim in the pool with a boy, you will get pregnant... * Eating a watermelon seed will produce a watermelon in your belly... There are so many more, I can't remember them right now.. my mom was nutty!! LOL!!
  • My mom told told me that Santa Claus ISN'T real...but he is...at least in my heart.... :)
  • The boogie man thing who was hiding under my bed is the only lie I can remember right now.
  • That if i ate the purple colored lettuce, I would turn into a boy! lol, i still don't eat it becuase I was so terrified! hehe
  • That if you turned the overhead dome light on in a car at night the police pull us over and would arrest my father. Truth is, having the light on just irritated my mother. But I believed it was a serious offense up into my 20's Oh......and chocolate milk comes from chocolate cows
  • I remember my sister telling me when I was little (she's 11 years older than me) that if I ate watermelon seeds I would have watermelons growing off my arms. My nieces wouldn't try coleslaw when they were little, so we told them that if they ate coleslaw they'd get big boobs when they grew up. Well, they ate it up every chance they got (so did my daughter) and they all are quite ample! lol Now whenever we see anyone with big boobs, we comment that they must've eaten lots of coleslaw! lol
  • Parents must really want their kids to eat the crust on bread. My parents told me that eating the crust would help me learn to whistle.
  • I think at one point they would tell me any poultry was duck cause I loved duck.
  • Myparents told me that if I didn't brush my teeth everyday, the cavity monster would come. If I was y, and I didn't want to brush them, my mom would knock on the wooden cabinets in to bathroom and say "The cavity monster is knocking!" And I would brush my teeth for like ten minutes straight. I never figured out it was all a lie until third grade.
  • when I asked my mom what the brown UPS truck was for, she told me they carry dead people.
  • Watching TV while lying down on the floor or couch would make my eyesight worse. Getting wet in the rain would give me a cold.
  • When I was young, I accidently dropped a catepillar down a drain and couldn't get him out. My mom told me it would turn into a butterfly and be able to fly out. I believed her at the time...it probably drowned, though. No hard feelings, Mom!
  • Warms? Well that's true, chocolate will get your blood flowing and will make you feel warmer.
  • If I crossed my eyes they would get stuck like that one day. And sitting to close to the t.v. would make my eyes bad. Not sure if that one is true.
  • Mine didn't...Lying like that to your kids is wrong, even if it is to make them eat their vegetables or something, it doesn't matter, it makes kids beleive something that isn't true. It is just really wrong.
  • The toothfairy is real, Eating carrots makes you see in the dark, If you eat too much chocolate you will turn into a mars bar, I am the worlds biggest dwarf, I am the worlds smallest giant, I am the best dad in the world, I am the best mum in the world, You are the cleverest person in the world, You will be the fastest runner in the world because i was when i was younger - you get the point
  • When a man and a woman sleep together the x and y chromosomes go back and forth and make a slight "buzzzzzzz" noise. Depending on what combo and woman ends up with, she gets pregnant with a girl or a guy... Haha
  • My bird died when i was like 7. N my mom thought i didnt know,so she went to the store n bought another 1 n tried to pass it off as MY bird. But i found the box. It was a nice try
  • If I didn't eat my tea I'd fall down a grid just like a kid they once knew. If I went crosseyed, they told me that if the wind changes I'd be stuck like that.
  • "Eat your crusts off your sandwiches, your hair will go curly" heh i'm gullible
  • 1.Don't do that with your face it will stay that way. 2.The Tooth Fairy brings money for your tooth. 3.Santa Claus brings presents.
  • None.. or at least I don't remember any that I believed for one second. They DID try to make me believe that if I played with fire, I would pee in my sleep (I know it sounds weird, but it's one of those things a lot of parents used to tell their kids, at least in Denmark >< ), but I always knew it was just something they said to make me stop
  • I used to walk on my tippy toes and my parents said that I would have to have my feet amputated if I did that for too long. If I swallowed watermellon seeds, a watermellon would grow inside of me. If I made a face for too long my face would end up that way. And if I was bad, a man named Mr. Miaga would come for me (it's a fairytale story about a man who kidnaps bad children, takes them him home and cooks them in a pot to eat them.) Oh, my dad and my brother, who was 11 years older than me at the time of the O.J. Simpson trial,(i was around 7 or 8 at the time) told me that O.J. Simpson killed his family, and he was now coming for me. When the phone would ring, my brother or dad would put on a grim face and be like "that was O.J., he said he was coming for you..."
  • this is kinda creepy Sara but it scared me so bad I still remember her exact words. It was about a little boy who wondered away from his parents at a drive in movie and when his parents found him "there, in a pool of blood, was his peepee! " A stranger had cut it off. Needless to say I hung tight to my parents when we went to the movie
  • If I played with my belly button too much my bum would fall off.
  • My mom told me if I ate enough brocoli and green beans my eyes would turn green like my sisters instead of being just blue.
  • ...that a priest without a head would come out of my wound if i didn't listen to what my mom said ... ...that a plant would grow inside of me if i swallowed the seed of whatever it was i was eating ... ...a ghost would come and get me if i stayed outdoors after 6pm ... hahaha! ;-)
  • my grandpa told me that they remove your tonsils with a wooden spoon - just like the one that you eat your ice cream with!
  • This isn't really a "lie" per se but... I remember once as a child my father had asked me to do a chore of some type and I was not putting the proper amount of strength into it. He told me that I needed to use some elbow grease. Not knowing what that meant, I told him I didn't have any. He then sent me into the garage where, for awhile, I proceeded to look for the "can" of elbow grease. Needless to say I have never forgotten that and it cracks me up when I remember it. As a matter of fact, I hadn't thought of that story for years, thanks for the reminder! :)
  • There are sooooo many. I would die of cold if I went outside with wet hair. I would drown if I went swimming shortly after eating. I would get piles (haemorrhoids) if I sat on cold steps. Sitting too close to the TV would make me go blind. Fairies lived at the bottom of the garden (these would often leave presents for me in my shoes) Swallowing apple pips would make trees grow out of my ears.

  • The Tooth fairy....how many kids fell for that one.
  • &quot;If you do your homework and it's all correct I'll buy you a present." LIERS! I've been having straight A's since 1st grade. My lazy ass older brother has straight D's (for dumbass) and still gets all the presents! -- And a lot more like: "If you keep cracking your ankle like that it'll fall off" and my favorite: "You were a planned baby, and we were never sad that you were made." Bullcrap! I wasn't planned- I was a surprise! My mom was sad that she got pregnant when she finally got 6 packs. ....Either way I still love them (-.-'')

  • When I was younger I really hated getting my hair blow dried. So my mom would tell me a story about this girl she knew who would put up her hair without drying it, and it got moldy. After that, whenever I complained about getting my hair dried, all she had to do was tell me that she could she the mold start to grow, and I'd stop complaining.
  • That our dog ran away.
