The song, "Let Me Love Open the Door" I always thought was "Let Milo Open the Door". Also, for the longest time I thought "Dream Weaver" was "Jane Weaver". My wife was pissed after I told her this, because now she only hears "Jane Weaver".

Of course there are mini carrots! I grow them. You just buy regular carrot seeds, nurture and feed and water them for about a year till they get really big healthy green leaves, then pull them up, and presto - beautiful carrots about 1 inch long! Never fails!

I just found the origin of the f-word. I read that in England, centuries ago, people couldn't have sex unless they were granted approval by the king. When they got approval and were having their fun, they'd hang a sign on their door that read "F.U.C.K" which meant "Fornicating Under Consent of King"
I read that on an email of 'strange facts' so not sure if BS or not.

One time when my aunt took me out to a corner diner when I was a kid, I ordered a dinner special that came with either a cup of soup or a small serving of salad. But the waitress mumbled out my choices. So when she asked me "Would you like soup or salad?" I said, "Sure, I'll have a super salad!" Took us a couple of minutes to straighten out the fact that they were indeed two seperate items.
Also, I thought the song "Alive and Kicking" by Simple Minds was "I Love Fried Chicken."
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

I wasn't laughed at, but got a scolding one time for this...
I didn't know the other meaning of "penetrate" when I was a kid -- just knew it as like, penetrate your defences; so one day my sister and I raced to the back door of our house, and she got their first, but I managed to wrestle her away. I shouted with glee "AHA, I penetrated you!" and my mom came out and scolded me.
But she wouldn't tell me why she scolded me, so I didn't use the word again for years until I finally found out it had a (violent) sexual connotation.

I was once in a bowling alley near Tampa bowling with my brother. We hardly ever went to a bowling alley. Anyway, I just finished a frame and all of a sudden this old guy comes at us screaming and yelling. I am trying to ask him what is wrong and he just goes ape-sh-t! finally his wife explains to us that you have to wait for the person on the right to go before you can. We had never ever heard of that until that minute. I guess up to that point, my brother and I were the only ones in the world capable of concentrating on the pins regardless of what everyone else was doing.

At my elementary school, there was a creek that ran right behind the school, and we often took mini-field trips to observe the assorted insects, ducks and other organisms that lived there. While doing an in-class presentation on the creek habitat, I talked in great detail about "all the different orgasms I had seen." I can still remember the mix of shock and horror that spread across my teacher's face during that presentation. Needless to say, I never confused those two words again!

As a child, I thought that that "guerilla warfare" was carried out by actual gorillas. I always envisioned big gorillas with machine guns attacking people. Hey don't laugh, "Planet of the Apes" was big around that time.

When I first came to Japan I didn't know the language well but was full of confidence anyway.
To sign your name to anything here you need a small personal stamp called a 'hanko'. One day I left mine at home but suddenly needed it for some work documents. I loudly proclaimed to my boss that I would just pop home for 10 minutes and grab my 'manko'.
Manko is an incredibly crude reference to female genitalia, known I believe as The C word ....
KROC, we know about the Superbowl, we just don't care !
