A four-year-old boy left his mother mortified after he spent his nativity play swearing at the audience.
His mother, Mary Anne Campbell, said her ‘comedian’ son, George, was innocently flashing a ‘V’ while singing about two shepherds last year.
The cheeky boy then started sticking up his middle finger after having seen his mother use the gesture as a joke to his grandfather.
The 27-year-old from Shropshire said: “He was singing a song about two little shepherds then it went down to one little shepherd. He put two fingers up, which was to do with the song.
“Then when he got to one little shepherd he first used his index finger then slyly stuck his finger up on stage at me, he knew exactly what he was doing.
“He did that, not once but twice, after he saw us laughing. I just remember thinking ‘oh my god’.”
The mother added: “When he stopped doing it he carried on singing and laughing. I didn’t bring it up afterwards because I didn’t want him to start doing it again.
“George is a bit of a comedian, if he thinks something’s funny he’ll carry on.”
The hilarious video shows the young boy in an angel outfit and wings happily singing along to the Christmas song.
“He was in reception and he was very excited to be an angel in the nativity play,” Ms. Campbell continued. “They had two nativities last year but parents could only go and watch one.
“He had stage fright and was a bit nervous and upset during the first show, he didn’t really do anything or sing so I asked if I could go and watch the second one too.
“He was more into it during the second one and that’s when he stuck his finger up.”
“It’s a fun family joke that when I pass my dad in the car I flash my headlights and I flip the bird. When we’re driving in the car I’ll go ‘oh there’s grandad’ and all the fingers go up in the car,” she explained.
“I’ve no idea how it started, it’s been going on for years and years, the children just copy and join in. it sounds awful but that’s just how it’s gone.
“He knows not to do it to anybody else, it was just one of those moments, I don’t think anybody else saw him.”
