    My older brother used to tell me things like that to scare me.

    Reading the subject heading brings Calvin & Hobbes to mind...

    When I used to take my kids on vacation (long car trips) I would say things like "Did you see that tiger back there in those trees?" or "Did you see that elephant on that overpass?" One day my son says "Dad, do you see that lion back there? There really was one honest!" I almost ran off the road.

    You probably confused them into thinking that deer and squirrels were actually called "lions" and "tigers"

    I'm the youngest of 9 children. I think I've heard them all.

    I had to think for a while, but then I remembered "it". We used to have a tree branch/twig on top of the kitchen door. They said we get a spanking with it if we did not behave. We never got the spanking, but we started to bring a new one in ourselves when the old one dried out to be too brittle

    When I was a kid, my mom would tell me to eat everything on my plate, and that if I didn't, I'd get warts on my face when I got older. I think that came from my grandmother.

    They were right. Scratching your eyes will make you go blind!
