The October study magazine has a great article about not believing everything you read on the Internet.

Now it's confession time  :D

 

Have you ever read something that you thought was true but later found out that it wasn't true?

 

I'd love to hear some humorous stories  :)

Egg on one's face. Not funny! I have learned to check with Scopes.com to see, "fact, or fiction" most of the time. And, if a friend gets caught in the web, I PM them, so they can look it up, and delete it. Being trusting folks does not always work out to our advantage.

I didn't read this on the Internet but many years ago a friend of ours that works as a nurse in a local hospital told us that a woman had two boys, pronounced Oranjulo and Lemonjulo but spelled Orange Jello and Lemon Jello. I shared that with a few friends until I eventually looked it up on Snopes.  :D

Well, I can do better then that! And this is real. I know the poor kids named, "Temptation", and his brother, 'Infallible". I asked the mom what she was thinking when she did this. I can't remember what she said, but, can you imagine?

Years ago there were a father and his son with name Goodenough. Father's name was Nottingham and son was Justin.

 

From a 1981? drama "How will they hear unless there is someone to Preach?

 

 

 

Not Good Enough :notworthy:   and Just Good Enough   :innocent:

 

 

It is Now on the internet!

I knew a young fellow many years ago who was the only one in his family to learn the Truth. His parents could not understand why, when he turned legal age, he changed his name. His given last name was Mas ...... they named him Christ (pronounced with a short i)

 

I also went to High School with a Chinese foreign exchange  student (WOW! That was a long time ago) who could not understand why everyone laughed when he told them his name - in English. I don't remember what his actual Chinese name was, but it translated as "Tampax"
