Let’s face it, kids say some really freaky stuff—whether or not they know what they’re saying. The parents of Reddit have amassed a collection of the weirdest, scariest, and most random things their kids have ever said, and the results are both hilarious and terrifying.
From alektorophobia (fear of chickens) to apparent brushes with the supernatural, here are 35 creepy stories straight out of the mouths of babes.
Let's start off with this ominous comment:
I was tucking in my two year old. He said “Good-bye dad.” I said, “No, we say good night.” He said “I know. But this time its good bye.”
The real mystery here: goodbye for whom?
Not to me, but to his grandmother. He was cuddling with her and being very sweet (he was about 3 at the time). He takes her face in his hands, and brings his face close to hers, then tells her that she’s very old, and will die soon. Then he makes a point of looking at the clock. –NotTomPettysGirl
This kid is such a Debbie Downer.
What exactly is a 'snake neck'?
While changing my daughter in front of the open closet door. She kept looking around me and laughing. I asked her what was so funny. She said, “the man.” To which I replied, “what man?” She then pointed at the closet and said, “the man with the snake neck.” I turn around and nothing was there. I’m afraid to look into the history of my house to see if anyone hung themselves in the closet. At least she wasn’t scared. – QuagmireDP
The lack of fear has to count for something, right?
When you’re no longer the only child and VERY salty about it:
My 3-year-old daughter stood next to her newborn brother and looked at him for awhile then turned and looked at me and said, “Daddy, it’s a monster…we should bury it.” –Like_I_was_sayin
I wonder if a sibling rivalry ever developed?
My five year old son asked me last week “what do you see through the black circles in my eyes when you’re controlling me when I’m at school?” –jelb32
