There was a big uproar last week about Subways' footlong sandwiches being only 11 inches long. Many people took to the web to show them measuring the subs and all of them were about 11 inches. Subway took all week and weekend to release a statement about it and when they finally did, it was lame.
Subway says that the term "Footlong" is just the name of the sandwiches and not meant to be a measurement. Lame right? Good cover Subway. Well we found some more things that aren't what they say they are!
You have been lied to!
#1.) If you buy a TWO-BY-FOUR at the lumber store, it's not really two inches by four inches . . . it's one-and-a-half inches by three-and-a-half inches.
#2.) PEANUTS aren't really nuts . . . they're legumes.
#3.) A KOALA BEAR isn't a bear . . . it's a marsupial, like a kangaroo.
#4.) A STARFISH isn't a fish . . . it's something called an echinoderm.
#5.) A PALM TREE isn't actually a tree. It's a type of grass.
#6.) And if you have SWOLLEN GLANDS, your glands aren't swollen . . . your lymph nodes are.
