    That the ice cream van only played music when it had run out of ice cream. I know now that this is nonsense. It plays different music to let people know if it selling drugs or porn

    Thunder was god throwing spuds down the stairs.
    If you ate a apple pip a tree grew out your bum.
    if you untied your belly button your bum fell off.

    if you swing a guinea pig by it's tail it's eyes will pop out.

    if you keep playing with it, it'll fall off oO , swallow that chewing gum & it will stick all your insides together ! dont draw on your hands as you will get blood poisoning from the ink ! eat your crusts and you will get curly hair, dont go outside with wet hair as you will get pneumonia !

    I've just realised my mum was a compulsive liar

    Chocolates in a box were for adults only, children could only eat chocolates which came in a tube or else their parents would get into big trouble.
    I was also told the ice cream van man played his music when he had run out of ice cream.
