Yummy Monster


You'll probably find yourself giggling away at this story. I know I do whenever I think about it these days. But it terrified me when it originally happened!

I'm a bit hazy on how old I was at the time, but I think it was round about when I was 11-12.

It was a gorgeous day, so my friend and I decided that we were going to have a picnic. We grabbed some munchies and my dog at the time (Lucky) and headed to my local park, which was roughly no more than a five minute walk. Once there, we decided to go up to the top of the hill where there is a little ruin of a house (most likely the gardener's, as the park used to be fenced off, there was even a park warden! But that was all before I was even born).

The house was basically hidden away by young (thin) trees. It was a lovely shady spot so we didn't have to worry about the sun. Anyways, we're sitting munching away: god knows what Lucky was off doing, probably sniffing a tree. All was nice and peaceful when I hear "yummy yummy yyyuuummmmyyy" (no kidding) I looked at my friend, kind of shocked and she looked at me.

Finally one of us said "did you hear that?" first instinct: someone is hiding and pulling a prank. Well, one look around and you can see if anyone's there- we saw know one. It comes again "yummmy yuuummy yuuuummmyy" okay, I'm scared (always have been a big wimp) and we bolted leaving everything!

Now we're out on the top of the hill in the open, there is definitely no place to hide. It comes again. This time, only about a foot away from me! "yuuummmy yummmy yuuuummmmmy" Lucky starts going nuts! Seriously, she starts barking and snarling then she starts jumping up and down on the spot like she's trying to attack someone. That just freaked me out and I'm ashamed to say I bolted. I ran to the bottom of the hill to the actual park and dragged some poor man back up to the top of the hill so I could get the stuff back out. I can't remember what I told the guy, but he very nicely came back with me anyways.

My friend was a lot braver than me and had gone back in, gotten the stuff out and waited for me at the top of the hill-with my lovely dog!

I know it sounds pretty unbelievable, and if it wasn't for my dog attacking something invisible I'd have put it down to someone pulling a prank... Still I like telling the story every so often because it usually gets people giggling!

What's strange though is before that happened, I used to go up there by myself all the time, and nothing ever happened. I've only been back there once since it happened a few years back, but I was only brave enough to peak in-sadly, it was covered in beer tins.

lol,that was funny, yet weird.
I think what ever kept saying "Yummy" must have loved the food.

You know, we are usually preoccupied with the dark, evil, and mysterious side of the paranormal. But we never actually take time to think about the cooky and almost crazy side of it. There is extreme evil and then there's plain old goofy. Glad there's something like that out there to counter balance... 😆

wow lol, I wasn't expecting quite so many comments! Guess it was a bit silly for me to be scared, but I was an extremely wimpy child and well it was my first encounter with invisable things! I think it was the sandwiches that did it lol.

Wow, this story actually shocked me a bit. For one reason, I have never read a comedy-type ghost story on here; most of them were full of mystery and horror. And for another reason, you were actually scared of 'it' saying "yummy yummmy yummmmy"?

I'm not making fun of you or anything, but it's kind of weird. Of course you would of been a little freaked, but I thought you would at least let out a little laugh. I mean, it's pretty hilarious!

Plus, maybe it just wanted some of your food. I'm sure it was yummy yummmy yummmmmy! Haha:P

thats actually a pretty cool story because the "thing" sounded very funny 😆
But what on earth are you talking about by saying that the expirience was scary I mean come on that story is hilarious 😆
This is the best "ghost" story on the whole site because before I joint "yourghoststories" I read these stories and I have NEVER read one like that!

Best wishes

That is pretty funny. I do believe that there could be a child ghost saying that because he or she was very funny in life, or the ghost was trying to get attention

YUMMY! That's hilarious! I suspect that it just had to be a friendly ghost! (If it was a ghost anyways!) Of course, if your dog was barking at something invisible, then it was...

Yuuummmy yummmy yuuuummmmmy! 😆

It's nice to know that not all unexplained encounters are the stuff nightmares are made of! This is--or ought to be--a classic of mysterious comedy. Gotta love a critter with a sense of humor, though I'm sure your dog might not agree!
