Jimmy Kimmel's Halloween candy prank videos are now legend, with parents eagerly torturing their children for our late night TV pleasure. Also, why are Boston sports fans such crybabies?

The gimmick: Tell your kids that you've eaten all their hard-earned Halloween candy and let the meltdown begin.

Kimmel points out that if you have too much Halloween candy, you can donate it Operation Gratitude, which will put the candy into care packages for U.S. troops.
