Just because we looked up to our parents as pillars of morality while growing up doesn’t mean they always practiced what they preached. If your parents were anything like mine, lying was an offense that would send you to your room without dinner and no visits from friends for a week. Little did we know, many of our parents were telling white lies that looked much darker once the truth was brought to light. u/skadarski asked the Reddit community to unpack all the secrets their parents hoarded until they reached adulthood. With nearly 4,000 responses to the post in r/AskReddit, enough beans were spilled to have us eating burritos for a lifetime, and we’re here to give you a taste of some of the juiciest secrets in the thread.
This Chucky was One of the Good Guys
We all had our favorite plushie to snuggle up with when we hit the sack after a long day of school and play. For most of us, those cuddle buddies were sweet teddy bears or Disney dolls, but there are a handful of kids who drifted off to Dreamland with the likeness of horror movie villains.
Unfortunately for this Redditor, their beloved’s resemblance to the knife-wielding terror of the Child’s Play series was too much for their mom, and she chucked the doll. Little did she know the rumored real-life inspiration behind Chucky looks far less menacing. He goes by Robert the Haunted Doll and is locked up safe in the Key West Museum.
