Watch: Jimmy Kimmel Makes Children Cry at Halloween

It turns out American children really, really love candy.

It is a known fact that watching small children cry over lost candy is highly entertaining. Late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel, who is known for acts of cruelty towards children, is well aware of this fact and once again has obtained a bounty of video footage for the sadistic masses to enjoy. The kids' reactions to discovering that their parents have eaten all of their Halloween earnings range from denial ("No! You're gonna make me cry again!") to violent outrage (screaming and throwing soda bottles). One child falls instantly into a state of pure melancholia, collapsing to the floor — for without candy, what else is there?
