Prank or no prank, the annual Jimmy Kimmel tradition of having parents videotape their kids’ reactions to finding out their parents ate all their Halloween candy is just plain mean. The first thing they’ve ever earned in their entire life, and you TAKE IT AWAY FROM THEM? Well, of course they’re going to lose it.

Is it funny? HILARIOUS. As long as it’s not my kid, because I would reveal the lie as soon as I saw the first bottom lip tremble. I am powerless against the sadness of children.

Those parents are MONSTERS.
