Kids Say The Creepiest Things

I want to peel all your skin off...

Kids say the darnedest things. Don't we know it? But sometimes they also say the most bone-chilling, Hitchcock-like comments, and according to an article in the Globe & Mail, the online forum has captured a few of the downright psychotic things to come out of the mouths of angels. Be worried. Be very worried.

“Parents of Reddit, what is the creepiest thing your young child has ever said to you?” was the question posted on Reddit. Are you ready for some of the toe-curling responses?

  • “I was sound asleep, and at around 6 a.m. I was woken up by my four-year-old daughters [sic] face inches from mine," wrote user psalm_69. "She looked right into my eyes and whispered, ’I want to peel all your skin off.’” (Granted, the user was sunburned at the time.)
  • “My three-year-old daughter stood next to her newborn brother and looked at him for a while then turned and looked at me and said, ‘Daddy its [sic] a monster … we should bury it.’”
  • “My five-year-old at the time had night terrors and would scream in her sleep," wrote user thingsimeantobe. "One night I said ‘mama’s here its [sic] okay.’ She looked right at me still asleep and screamed, “Mama? But who is that behind you?’”
  • “Daddy, remember that time we died?” from user CtrlShiftZ.

And my personal, never-closing-my-eyes-again, Satan-spawned favourite from user GatorMcGovern: “Daddy, I love you so much that I want to cut your head off and carry it around so I can see your face whenever I want.”

Really, who needs Stephen King? We have children (of the corn). Think you can top any of these? Spill away, and excuse me while I go hide in the closet...
