Kids are great, aren’t they?  Not only can you mold them to dislike the things you dislike, and make them do the menial crap around the house you don’t want to do, they’re also the easiest people in the world, outside of hillbillies and the Kardashians,  to pull a fast one on.  They are so innocent, so gullible, so dumb, that pranking them is as easy as making emo teenagers depressed.

Take this wee Penguins fan, all resplendent in his Sidney Crosby jersey and Pittsburgh Penguins helmet.  He obviously loves the Pens, and wants nothing more than those he loves and trusts the most, his parents, to pledge their allegiance to his favorite team as well.  The parents, on the other hand, take this as an opportunity to play a little joke on their Penguins obsessed son, by telling him they choose to root for the Red Wings.  This, of course, sends the kid off on a tantrum of epic proportions, crying and screaming his head off, much like the real Sidney Crosby might do when he a call doesn’t go his way.

Ba-zing!

Video follows the jump…

I swear my eardrums shattered at the 0:12 second mark when that kid let go his initial blood-curdling scream.  And what’s with the parents anyway?  I mean, does anyone else think it’s a tad harsh to pull a stunt like this on their kid knowing he’ll have a freak out like that, then videotape it and post it on YouTube? Even I wouldn’t stoop so low and do something like that to my kids, and I was warned by numerous medical experts never to breed.  Oh well, to each his own I guess.

As for the kid, buck up little buckaroo. One day you’ll be able to exact revenge on your parents for their cruel little joke by taking all their money and sticking them in the worst nursing home ever, like the kind you’d see featured on 60 Minutes or Dateline NBC.
