No. Just no. The one kid is right - "Well that's not kind."

This isn't a prank. It's cruelty. There are a few rules that help you distinguish between the two and the first rule is that the person being pranked had better be laughing. If they're not, it's not a prank.

I'm sorry, but how is purposefully reducing your child to tears funny? Shocking, amazing or even frustrating someone, sure, but generally speaking, when you make someone cry it is usually considered going a bit too far.

Well, after thinking it over, I guess y'all are right. If somebody told me that they drank up all of my bourbon and vodka I'd cry too...and then I'd try to kill 'em.

This is not funny. It is stupid. I am no one's parent (carried full term) but I can see ass hole behaviour from a mile away.

And hence forth little Republicans are made; those people that were so traumatized as children when their candy was taken away that they no longer are willing to share anything with any body, ever.

Most of these kids were about 4 or 5. They cry a lot about anything. It's not like the parents carried out the joke for hours and didn't quickly admit they were kidding.
I find it more of an insight into how the children will eat and behave as adults. It's not cruelty.

I couldn't be past the first two. This is an incredibly cruel joke to play on your child. I don't know how any parent can sit there and hurt their children in such a manner and not stop themselves. Kimmel does so funny things but this is downright cruel. As cruel as the mother who horribly sings to her baby to make the baby cry. Talk about scarring a child for life, this is a sure way to do that.

I come from a family of teasers... if Jimmy were around back when I was growing up, I'm sure my parents would have done this to us.
To those that think this is cruel: lighten up. It's a rough world out there--people are going to pull pranks and these kids better be able to handle it. There's nothing worse than a poor sport that can't laugh at themselves.

That was too funny. Thanks for posting it!

Jimmy Kimmel has gotten folks to pull some funny pranks over the years. These kids are not going to be scarred for life. It's also interesting to see how kids react. Most throw a fit, but some actually see beyond themselves and say, "that's ok", since they figure their parent needed the candy more, even if this is communicated through tears and immediate disappointment.

I love how everyone becomes a concerned parent on this blog. "The class of people who watch Jimmy" Really? F that, thats so rude. Having a little bit of fun and joking around helps kids laugh after heartache. KIDS ARE GOING TO HAVE HEARTACHE. Better to have them understand it and talk to you about it. Just watch Steel Magnolias. "Laughter through tears" Assholes.

I came from a family that wasn't afraid to stand around a corner and scare you, or wasn't ashamed to accidentally pee ourselves from laughing too much, or poked a bit of fun at you when you're acting like a terd.

I think that little girl is a bit young to be using the b word. LOLs. While I would not do this to kids in my family, it is funny when others to it to their kids.

I love these!
To all the "concerned" parents commenting, Calm the F*CK down...I'm sure this will not scar them for life.
