Grandma Accidentally Buys Adult Book For 6-Year-Old, And Parents Get Hilariously Shocked When They Open It

At some point in our lives, all of us were probably taught to not judge a book by its cover. This story is a hilarious example why. Everything started when one grandma was shopping in Barnes & Noble and spotted a book called “If Animals Could Talk.” She immediately thought that the colorful print was something her 6-year-old granddaughter Emmersyn – who was already an “avid reader” – would love.

When Emmersyn got her present, she and her dad tried to read it aloud together. It started pretty vanilla, about gorillas and bananas. But the next page had a baby chick saying “Aight, let’s tear the roof off this mutha fucka!” And it went on. Polar bears with coke problems, horses proud of their junk, and other inappropriate animals were all over the book.

Emmersyn’s mom, Tifanny contacted her grandma. “I was like, ‘Remember that book you got Emmy, If Animals Could Talk?’ And she’s like yeah. I said, ‘Did you actually open it?’ And she said no,” she told BuzzFeed. “I started reading some of the pages to her, and she was mortified.” Tifanny shared the crazy experience on Twitter, and people couldn’t stop laughing. The post was liked by nearly 250K users, and some even said they had to “wipe tears from their eyes” and “catch their breath” from laughing too hard.

One Grandma bought a book for her 6-year-old granddaughter who loves to read without opening it

With all the cute animals on its cover, the book seemed like a perfect read for the little girl

The inside pages, however, weren’t so innocent

Grandma will have to be more careful the next time she decides to buy a fu*king book for her granddaughter!

This hilarious story was a bestseller on the internet, and people were even wiping tears from their eyes after reading it

And it is not spelled "Weiner Dog" but "Wiener Dog" so no editor or anyone who can spell didn't read it either before publishing.

this CANT be another coincidence. Either BuzzFeed is copying from BoredPanda, or BoredPanda from BuzzFeed. This is definitely not the first post that has literally been copied from one of the sites

Of course not, that's how viral websites work - you'll find content here from imgur, buzzfeed, reddit, other humor sites and artist websites and webcomics. Sometimes the BoredPanda community produces content that will be crosslinked on other sites, sometimes the editors and artists/photographers on BoredPanda create a post.

since she doesn't understand now, she'll forget about it and years later when the daughter finds the book in a dusty old storage and finally understands. oh gramps, wish you were here.

I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that’s cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do... http://cutt.us/1Tmb
