When he was little we took him to Disneyland Paris and he fell in love with Chip from Chip and Dale....

He followed them around got their autographs and was besotted with Chip...he didn't like Dale

Upon leaving we went to the giftshop to buy him a cuddly chip toy, only they were all out of Chips and only had Dales left.

So I bought the Dale and told him it was Chip .....the difference is in colour of their nose

For years and years this soft toy has been his bedtime companion he still cuddles it now......

Then on Thursday he went to the Disney shop with his girlfriend to buy her baby cousin a present and he wanted suggested a Chip

thing is he's now gone of the's lying in the middle of his bedroom floor and normally it's always on his pillow.

I think he might have thrown Dale at the wall in disgust on discovering he wan't Chip

I have some black nail varnish, should I colour his nose now or is to late to make amends?

My mum told me when I was 8 that my dog Pepsi was going to become a police dog and that's where she was taking him.

I only found out the truth a couple of year ago at 20 that he was been taken to be put down.

For years I was proud I had a dog good enough the police wanted him and even told people blush

Me and DP both LOLing at "Marty Marty Marty Marty" grin

Oh god, I'm worried now. We had a book for ds1 with loads of animals in and we made up some of the sounds. He will be horrified to learn that camels don't say 'my humps, my humps, my lovely camel humps, check it out' grin
Actually we made up loads. Moles say 'I am a mile and I live in a hole'
Whales say 'alright boyo'
I think I'd better go and explain before its too late.

SP I had a dog called Pepsi best name for a dog ever

TessCorpseDissect Sun 28-Oct-12 14:03:42

grin @ Convert having to go and explain before it's too late.

KelperRose Sun 28-Oct-12 14:15:11

I make up loads of stuff but I'm now regretting it all given the Dale situ

I think the worst one was I told my son the train 'The flying Scotsman' was how planes got invented.

it was called the flying Scotsman because it had to go really really fast and sort of 'took off' to bridge the water between Scotland and Wales..

Hence the invention of planes

He actually told his teacher this and convinced his primary two class that this was how planes were invented

Kelper he was a great dog but looking back there was no way he would have made it through police dog training! He was a bit taller then a Jack Russell grin

I remember the day my brother 18 now found out our dad was infact not the man in the barney costume! He was 15 when he found out and had believed it since he was 4/5 grin

He was not happy with us for allowing him to believe it

ZombTEE Sun 28-Oct-12 14:22:34

Oh your poor son. How could you! sad

Only...has he never watched any of the movies or TV shows?

Not laughing. Swear I'm not laughing. Or racking my brain to think of lies I've told my son that I'd better straighten out. Of course, he's only 3.

Marty Marty Marty!! grin Classic!

TomsBentPinky Sun 28-Oct-12 14:26:15

This really cheered me up.

Marty grin

TheHairyDieter Sun 28-Oct-12 14:28:08

Then when he saw the Chip and they Dale he said 'this shop has chip and dale mixed up'

That is so tragic grin. I do feel guilty for laughing, though...

VerityClinch Sun 28-Oct-12 14:42:24

Well that's just the point, isn't it, I DON'T KNOW WHAT FUCKING SOUND A PINE MARTIN MAKES DO I?angry

It sure as hell doesn't go Marty Marty Marty Marty though.

Stupid stoat/weasel/ferret type thing.


VerityClinch Sun 28-Oct-12 14:42:40

And breathe...

WofflingOn Sun 28-Oct-12 14:47:14

Happy to help!
Here's a very annoyed pine marten

Superabound Sun 28-Oct-12 15:14:07

I thought a pine marten was a bird blush

WofflingOn Sun 28-Oct-12 15:26:45

House martins are birds. Pine martens are large members of the weasel family.
I wonder if there's a pinemarten pokemon? That would say 'Marty Marty Marty'

My parents told me that my dad used to be a stripper. I believed them until I was about 28. Their Laughter faded a bit when they realised that I'd told all my friends, whose parents were their friends!

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sun 28-Oct-12 17:22:51

Just tell him
"well at least I didn't buy you a Dale Wilton doll " and let him deal with it.

But I am deeply ashamed of your dreadful lying tendancies too.

<<Tsk Tsk>>

Awww poor boy :-(

FrankensteinWippery Sun 28-Oct-12 17:37:02

I'm surprised you have been brave enough to start a thread about this. Undeniably cruel. He will be scarred for life. How can you sleep?

I once told my dp that my hamster had lives for 11 years. Dp told me that was impossible so I got all the pics out and showed him "Sid" who lived until I was 15.

He went on the Internet to peovee wrong so next time I was at my dads I asked my dad to put him right.

Turns out Sid was actually about 6 versions. Each time it died they replaced the bloody thing. Until I found it dead myself.

I'm blush at the amount of people I have proudly announced to about that bloody hamster.

He also told me haggis was little goats type animals that lives high in the Scottish hills. Hills so pointy that you can't stand on them. When I asked how the haggis stood he told me their right legs where shorter than their left legs.

I believed that until I was 27. The look of delight on dp face as I matter of factory informed him of the haggis goats.

I'm too gullible.
