Absolute ignorance is no impediment to holding strong opinions.
I already posted one really tasteless twerking video, which is one more than I ever planned to post… but this was too funny to pass up.
The Grunt of Monte Cristo, who is not generally prone to understatement, describes this one as “terminally cute” — which is actually rather apt.
I wasn’t going to post this one at all, since it is a reprise of what I labeled the meanest practical joke ever, and I felt bad enough about posting part one. What changed my mind was the three clips at the very end of the montage, where the children who think they’ve just been swindled out of all their hard-earned Halloween candy exhibit a spirit of forgiveness and generosity that is truly heartwarming. The contrast between these sweet little kids and the ones who threw the screaming tantrums is… well, watch for yourself:
Just for the record, I strongly disapprove of practical jokes that involve actual cruelty, especially if they involve cruelty to children. So I feel kind of guilty about posting this video, because by doing so I’m encouraging other people to do what I did — which was to laugh out loud (repeatedly) at what was undeniably a very cruel prank. But the kids’ reactions are so hilarious that I just couldn’t resist. I’m sure that once the parents dropped the deception they compensated the kids for their emotional anguish… at least I hope they did. If not, I’m sure the kids found some creative ways to get even with them.
