  1. Did anyone else’s parents say “if you keep making that face, it will stay
    like that” 

  2. The biggest lie of all is religion

    Waits patiently for idiotic religious people.

  3. All parents in my area said that if you sag too close to the tv, your eyes
    would go square. I believed it for a couple months. 5 years later, my 12
    year old friend came round and I was sitting in front of the TV and invited
    him to sit next to me. He then said “you do know that if you are too near
    the telly, your eyes go square, right?”.

    Spiderman…. #ThanksObama

    sisters money and didn’t give it back until she promised to leave her

    world, talk about memories down the drain.

  19. One thing I love about my parents: They never lied to me.
    They openly taught me about sex from a young age and never lied about
    “where do babies come from?” They never led me to believe in things like
    Santa, Easter Bunny, etc (these things do not exist in our culture anyway).
    They taught me everything they knew and believed religiously, but always
    encouraged me to think for myself and question them.

    toilet, Bloody Mary comes out of the mirror. To this day I’m still
