One Arizona mum ‘crapped her pants’ and had to check whether her daughter was the ‘spawn of Satan’ after an unintentionally hilarious bathroom exchange between the pair.
Brianna was just brushing her teeth with three-year-old daughter Thea when the young girl, who has never watched Stephen King’s terrifying IT, peered over the drain and said ‘Hi Georgie’.
Bri, who had watched the clown horror film just a month earlier, ‘got chills’ and ‘legitimately had to hold back some tears’ when Thea recited the harrowing line.

Speaking to UNILAD, Bri said:
Well, we got her the Peppa Pig set for Christmas, so I really don’t know exactly how long he was down there. But she and I were brushing our teeth together as we do every night before bed, with her standing on the toilet which is basically right up against the sink.
She leaned over to rinse her toothbrush off and stops dead in her tracks, fixated on the drain. Then she goes (in a creepy singsong voice she’s mastered at the age of 3) ‘Hi Georgie…’
My husband and I had just watched IT about a month ago so the movie was still fresh in my mind.
She looked up at me and I got chills. Like the kind of chills you get when someone is telling a ghost story around a campfire and I legitimately had to hold back some tears.
After plucking up the courage to discover what her daughter was referring to, in the hopes she wouldn’t encounter a killer clown, Bri looked down the drain to find a toy figurine of Peppa Pig’s brother George.
After her ordeal, Bri posted the image and story to Twitter, saying:
My 3 year-old just made me crap my pants when she looked down our bathroom sink and goes ‘Hi Georgie…’ (Keep in mind she’s never seen a scary movie in her life, let alone IT).
Against my better judgement i look down the drain AND ..it’s Peppa Pig’s little brother, George.
…It all makes sense now.
I needed to know at that pivotal moment in time If my child was the actual spawn of Satan, so I slowly brought my face down to the drain with my eyes closed.
When I opened them, I had to laugh at myself being so scared. The stinkin’ Pig.
The thing is, she watches Peppa Pig all the time. Even though he’s referred to as ‘Georgie’ a couple times in the show, she’s never called him that. So her decision to use that name instead of George is all the stranger.
Bri’s post received over 180k retweets and 603k likes, with lots of people empathising with her terror, saying they read the caption in Pennywise’s creepy voice.
Bri later fished out George from the drain to find he had lost both of his legs. To her horror once more, she asked Thea what happened to George’s legs and received the response that they ‘been eaten’.
I feel like Thea knows something we don’t.
