Parents Share The Hilariously Creepy Things Their Kids Have Said

“Mommy, who is that man in the red jacket by the stone house?” - A child pointing at an empty cemetery.

Kids say the darndest things, it's true. And sometimes the things they say are a bit more alarming than adorable — in any case it's usually still hilarious. Kids simply have no filter. They can be a bit too honest at times, and they typically say things we all think but know not to say out loud (like mentioning that weird smell in the elevator). 

While their unpredictable mouths can be entertaining sometimes, they can also be strangely creepy. Kids are just too smart for their own good, and it can be hard to gauge whether or not they're being serious. Over on Twitter, writer Mikki Kendall sparked a conversation on the topic by asking parents (and other adults who deal with kids on a regular basis) to share the creepiest thing their child has ever said to them.
