We've all been there. We've heard jokes we didn't get, we've been on the outside of inside jokes, we've failed to understand a meme, etc. So what are some things that you guys didn't get for the longest time, and now that you do, you could kick yourself for not seeing how obvious it was.

For example: for the LONGEST TIME, I thought this was supposed to be like a dude air-guitaring. As in "this post is the kinda shit that, were it translated into music, I would air-guitar to." IDK, just an embarrassing little moment of mine.

What are some of yours?

When I was younger, a family friend named William owned a Concreting business.

My whole family would laugh and joke about it, and I never got it.... then it happened...

William The Concreter...

Now I find it hilarious. Such are shitty "in" jokes

Same here. I have never been really aware of internet shorthands and all that either. Like - I think this was 6 years ago - I couldn't figure out what <3 was, and girls kept typing that to me on aim, and I'd be like 'ummm yeah... ok' I'd be thinking what the hell is "less than three" supposed to mean. When I finally got it there was a facepalm heard round the world.

Until like 6 months ago, I always thought submarine was 'suMBarine' and I've pronounced it that way and written it that way all my life until recently.

Also it's not me, but a friend of mine only recently realised the ex AIC singer was called Layne Stayley and not Layne Stanley. Pretty bad one there!

I know of a concreting company with that name. It's even more amazing because they're actually from Hastings.

EDIT -
When I was 6 or 7 years old, my dad told me that yellow combine harvesters had to have black bits on them to stop them from getting lost in corn fields. I believed that for a good 2 or 3 years.
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

Surely, being raped and enjoying it doesn't really class as rape any more?

It's the simple stuff that people tell you like that that you believe for ages.

We were watching "The Thomas Crown Affair" with a family once. Thomas hides the suitcase under one of the benches in the museum in order to steal the painting. So my father noticed that and told me that there is one extra leg. Even after rewinding it, I couldn't figure out what leg he was talking about.
Some months later I remembered it and decided to watch it again. It took me ages to see that extra leg under that bench!

Anyways, my father and I were listening to the radio when I was younger, when one of the hosts said something about cameltoe. I promptly said, "DAD WHAT'S A CAMELTOE?!"

Around the same age we watched a wonderful film called "The Jerk," a rac(ial/y) comedy featuring Steve Martin. He played a naive man who had just moved out of his house in the sticks. He fell in with a rough young woman named Patty who worked as a daredevil in a circus. He would write letters home to his family about his life and send some money along. In one letter he wrote the following: "I may be able to send more money soon, as I may be getting extra work; my friend Patty promised me a blow job."

Once again: "DAD WHAT'S A BLOW JOB?!"

Now that I'm older and understand these things I'm having a wonderful time going back through all of those old movies and really appreciating the humor and often laughing at myself.

The "man in the coffee beans" picture. I literally never found him by myself, I spent at least 10-15 minutes looking for it. One of my friends found him in less than 5 seconds when I showed it to him though.

A man walks into a bar with a newt on his shoulder.
"Bartender, give me a pint of Guiness, and a shot for Tiny"
"Why did you name your newt Tiny?"
"Well...he is my newt"

I heard that joke when I was 8. I got it when I was 17. It still wasn't funny.

^Haha, that reminds me, one night when I was sitting at the dinner table back in like 6th grade, keep in mind I was a bit weird back then, I said loud and clear:

"Welcome to dan's car wash, we offer spit shines and blow jobs!" (Not knowing what that was, keep in mind.)

The room just fell kind of silent, and my mom said "Lucas, do you know what a blow job is?"
I shook my head.
"Okay, I'll have a talk with you after dinner about what it is, and homosexuals."

I figured it out pretty quickly after that.

Uh... Hovercars... I can't believe we don't have those yet...

Hoverboards... Can't believe we don't have those yet...

Soma... Can't believe we don't have that yet...

I never understood the fascination with hovercars. They don't fly. They merely hover above the ground, so they effectively travel exactly like cars with wheels. I'd imagine that due to the lack of friction, they'd be difficult to steer precisely.

If cars could fly, any collision would be even more lethal than it already is.

I remember something I didn't really understand until I was about 18. It was way back when I was about 7, in infant school. We were sat round the carpet, and for no apparant reason, I was sucking my arm to make a red mark. People started to copy me, and the teacher told me to stop. Naturally I did it again, and I was told to sit down outside the circle.

I was unaware until I thought about it over a decade later that I'd done anything wrong, and at the time was sure I'd been handed some kind of treat.

I once wrote a song called Narrow Facade, and it was only after writing all the lyrics, using lots of lines in which words rhymed with facade, that I realised it was pronounced "fassahd" and not "fuckade".
