ids can be cute, but we don't talk enough about how damn creepy they can be. Kids have no filter, so they often say exactly what's on their mind, and sometimes that stuff is scary enough to spook you into next Tuesday!
It's also been said that some kids know things... things they shouldn't know.
Maybe because they haven't been jaded by the world yet they are more in tune with the spiritual realm. Whatever it is, it's terrifying, and when I have kids, I super hope they scare the pants off of me with their ghostly knowledge.
Twitter pot-stirrer Mikki Kendall asked the Internet to share the creepiest, weirdest things kids have said to them.
Why not creep yourself out? she asked while including possibly the most unsettling GIF of all time. Thanks, Mikki.
The Internet delivered with more than 1,000 responses, and I’m going to share the best/worst ones with you because I cannot be alone with my terror anymore.
Eat You Up
Thinking about it, it is kind of messed up that we say, “I’m going to eat you up!” as a sign of affection. That’s some cuteness aggression right there. But we never get more specific about how we’re going to eat you up. That’s when it gets creepy.
They Come at Night
Well, this is the cold open of the scariest movie to hit theaters in years. There could be so many explanations for what this kid said. Maybe it’s dreams. Maybe he’s talking about how his dreams take him — Nah, I can’t. He’s super talking about aliens.
The Man in the Red Jacket
OK here’s the thing — I love ghosts. And I want to be able to see and communicate them. What I do not want is for a two-year-old child in a cemetery to point to a ghost that I cannot see and say, “He’s coming over to talk.”
The Blue House
What what WHAT. The kid gave driving directions to an abandoned blue house where his “other” grandparents lived. Cool. Not creepy at all.
