Well, this is awkward.

One mum’s nighttime routine with her children took an unexpected X-rated turn recently.

Mum-of-three, Stacey Brown, shared the hilarious incident on Facebook, and it’s made others admit they’ll “never unsee” it.


She was reading ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’ by Julia Donaldson when she noticed the rude detail in the illustration, reported the Manchester Evening News.

The picture of the giant’s sock-covered foot sticking out the end of the trousers went viral after she shared the post online.

“How have I only just noticed this in our favourite bedtime story?” wrote Stacey on the popular Family LowdownFacebook page.

Her post has attracted a lot of attention as other parents admired the illustration by Axel Scheffler.

Her post has racked up hundreds of comments from parents, with many agreeing the foot does indeed look like a different body part.

One woman joked: “And that’s how giants are made…”

Another commented: “Omg!!!! Penis Foot!!! I used to read this book to my kids.”

A third said: “I can never unsee this! It’s my son’s favourite Julia Donaldson book as well.”

One mum joked: “I noticed that and thought how could this be legal!!”

But another correct assessed the situation, writing: “You people have been in lockdown too long. Just looks like a sock to me.”

Mum-of-three Stacey said she was ‘hugely surprised’ by the response to her post.

She said: “I thought it was just me and my dirty mind. I’m so glad it raised a lot of laughter though. People will never look at it the same again.”Follow @MirrorWeirdNews
