The treat is in the trick

Becca showed me the second of these videos yesterday, and I have to post them here because I could not for the life of me believe what I was seeing.

Now, I get that from the ages three to eight there are few things worth living for besides a stash of candy begged off people’s doorsteps on Halloween night. But that is NO EXCUSE for these children to scream, cry, flail limbs, throw things or beat their mothers, as it were, just because they think they have been deprived of the sweets and calories some of them clearly do not need (see the 2:18 mark in the first video).

That said, some of them did seem quite docile about it, like the last four children in the second video. The rest I just want to beat against a wall. Repeatedly.
