I love the way a good horror story can be created with the right tone and just a few words. For today's Web-find Wednesday, here are some creepy quickies, because one can never have too many...

Ever hear a kid say something incredibly frightening?
From 20 Creepy Things Little Kids Have Said To Their Poor Babysitters. (reblogged from HYCS)
1. A few years ago, I was putting my friend’s daughter to bed for the night.
She was about 3 at the time, and she was fighting going to sleep. She asked me why she had to go to bed, and I said “Because it is late and it’s time for little girls to get a good night’s rest.” She then pointed at nothing across the room and said, “What about that little girl?”
2. Two years ago, I was looking through my elementary school yearbook with my 5 year old cousin…
When we came to a page with a 2nd grade class, she pointed to a boy’s photo and said, “That looks just like Nicolas!” When I asked who Nicolas was she just said “The boy in my closet,” and kept on looking through the pictures. I almost died.
3. Little kids know stuff, man.
My niece is 4 and talks about her “older sister” constantly. She is always talking to her too. She is an only child and has no idea her mother had a previous pregnancy a few years back that was a mid-term loss. Weirds me out something major.
4. I was heading to the bathroom on the second floor of my aunt’s house when I saw my cousin, April, on the stairs.
April was four and very animated. She was busy making funny faces while sitting on the stairs. I asked her what she was doing. She said, “I’m copying the lady with the braid.”
I looked around, there was no one else but us. I asked, “where is the lady, April?” She pointed to a beam running parallel to the stairwell.
I asked April, “what is the lady doing?”
She said, “Makin’ funny faces.”
I started walking up the stairs again when April said something that stopped me in my tracks.
“Her braids is around her neck.”
I turned back and asked April to repeat herself.
April pointed, “the lady is hanging by her braid… She’s making funny faces.” Then April started making a face which I then realize was it someone gasping for air.
5. I was looking after Jack (A five year old) who said a man named Jacob who dressed like a lumber jack was sitting next to me on the couch.
He must have seen the shock in my face, and said “Don’t worry, he doesn’t have any arms.”
