(Example of 1.) Despite being called "lead," pencil lead has no actual lead makeup, and is instead a mix of mostly graphite and clay. The phrase originates from a misunderstanding where graphite ore was mistaken for lead ore. (Being exposed to that much actual lead for your entire school life could kill you.)
