Jimmy Kimmel Really Isn't Nice to Kids

Ah yes, it's that wonderful time of year again: Pumpkin spice lattés, fluffy scarves, cuddly sweaters...and, of course, Jimmy Kimmel's annual Halloween candy prank. It's a tradition that Kimmel has thankfully kept up for the past few years after it first reached success in 2011, and — I'm happy to report — this year's installment is no less entertaining as the ones that came before it.

If you're not familiar with this brilliant segment that Jimmy Kimmel Live! features once a year, it's basically the collection of videos that Kimmel has parents send in of them telling their children that they ate all their Halloween candy. The results are, predictably, a mix of hilarious and adorable, even with the kids go insane and start throwing things in anger. (But really, it was their Halloween candy: Can you blame 'em for being mad?)

What I've always found most interesting about these videos isn't the kids that throw the giant-sized tantrums when their parents break the fake-bad news, though. Instead, I've felt that the more compelling clips are the ones of the kids who nicely tell their parents "it's OK" or "I'll get more next year" in response to hearing all their hard-earned Halloween candy is forever gone to them. I mean, really, that takes major self-control — something you don't really see a lot in children. I can honestly say those kids are probably better human beings than I am.
