Martha’s Vineyard isn’t just some land that rich people went to that was owned by Martha Stewart.

That guys didn’t have to squeeze their d@#ks to get their pee out.

That IHOP is the International House of Pancakes.

I never made the connection that they were the same thing, so until recently I thought the International House of Pancakes was like a hall of fame-type museum restaurant…for pancakes.

I was circumcised. I never knew I was circumcised until I went to the pediatrician and my mom told the pediatrician that I was circumcised.

That my cat didn’t go back to the pet store when it was sick. I had even heard all the jokes about pets “going to the farm.” Still didn’t strike me till waaay too late.

That the ribs my siblings and I ate as kids were not from velociraptors. My dad and mom had always called them velociraptor ribs for some reason and I guess we just figured our dad was so big and awesome that it made sense that he would often go out and kill dinosaurs for us to eat.

Turns out, they are definitely not the same thing.
