Last night, Jimmy Kimmel continued his annual tradition of ripping families apart by asking parents, for the fourth year in a row, to tell their kids they ate all the Halloween candy. The results range from wounded tears to straight-up post-Halloween sugar tantrums to being surprisingly calm about the whole thing.
Kimmel's prank is genuinely the scariest thing about Halloween: a dark and twisted fun-house mirror held up to our society on national TV. Is the joke on the kids or on the audience? Has Jimmy Kimmel revealed the cruel side of all of us, the side that finds amusement in children's pain?
Shit, I don't know. That little girl saying "motherfucker" was pretty funny, though.
