A Kiwi toddler's foul-mouthed response to a visiting goat has gone viral, despite her mother's insistence that the animal was "just a goat".
Christchurch mum Sophie Smith was at home with two-year-old daughter Ivy when the intruder appeared.
She used her cellphone to record the scene as she exclaimed: "It's a f****** goat!"
Not missing a beat, her daughter copied her and said: "A f****** goat's outside".
Attempting a correction, Sophie replied: "It's just a goat," but Ivy was convinced.
"No, it's a f****** goat."
Smith told Stuff that she initially shared the clip on other social media before being urged to send it more widely, so she uploaded it to TikTok - and it exploded.
The cheeky clip soon racked up more than five million views.
Smith said she was stunned by the response.
"I've had a lot of really positive comments from people who have said that it's just made their day and all they needed was a laugh and that they're really appreciative that I shared it ...
"And then I've also had quite a few hate comments of people saying really negative things," she said.
Much of the criticism came from other mums, critical of Smith swearing in front of her children.
