What would happen if you punked your kids into thinking you ate all of their Halloween candy, then captured their agony and despair on video and put it on YouTube?

Jimmy Kimmel decided to find out, issuing a challenge to parents everywhere last week.

The goal was simple: Tell this lie convincingly to your young ones and tape the results.

The results are hilarious. Kids are the best. Watch the four-minute segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live that resulted from the host's Halloween YouTube challenge:

Singer-songwriter Andy Grammer used to jam on street corners. Now he's got a hit album (you've likely heard "Keep Your Head Up") and tours with Colbie Caillat.

He's proof positive that with hard work, raw talent and perseverance, and a little help from your friends, one can achieve anything in life, even musical stardom.

Andy recently revealed that he can trace his success back to one song, a tune that has influenced so many of our lives in a deep, meaningful and profound way.

Zack Morris and Mr. Belding? Nodding in approval somewhere ...

Kids these days. They think everything is so high-tech!

You can sort of see where they're coming from, seeing that if you're one year old, Apple's super-cool iPad is an item that has literally been around your ENTIRE LIFE.

The bar is set high. Rather than be mesmerized at all the things an iPad does, a child is just as likely to be confounded by what a regular old magazine cannot do.

Just scroll already, Marie Claire! This thing doesn't even work!

Watch this youngster in action:

Conan O’Brien is resurrecting an old standby tonight.

For the first time since moving to TBS last year, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog will join O’Brien on stage. Conan tweeted the news via this pic from New York, where he's broadcasting this week. He's not looking too pleased about the insults to come:

Triumph and Conan

Technically, O’Brien’s content from NBC is property of that network, but the TBS host has already brought the Masturbating Bear back without repercussions.

It's go time for Triumph tonight. This sock puppet pooch drops comedic bombs on foolz like no other, and we can only pity who his victim(s) might be.

If you haven't seen this crass canine in action, you're in luck. We've dug deep and posted Triumph at the premiere of Star Wars: Episode II below ...

Are Herman Cain's campaign commercials for real?

The spots for the Republican Presidential candidate resemble what you'd think were an SNL spoof of a Herman Cain ad ... like he can't believe he's leading national polls and actually running a serious campaign these days either.

Take this unintentional comedic gem, in which his Chief of Staff, Mark Block, gushes about candidate Cain and urges people to act on his behalf ... while lighting up a cigarette, as Krista Branch's "I Am America" blares in the background:

It's as if someone at Cain HQ is trying to cry out for help.

Please, vote for someone else. Running for President was fun while it lasted, but we weren't prepared for this kind of attention, and are in over our heads.

That, or it's a stroke of pure genius. We can't really tell.

Follow the jump for another of Cain's now famous campaign ads, "He Carried Yellow Flowers," as well as the official Herman Cain Train music video.

Yes, there is a Herman Cain music video. Watch:

We have seen a lot of random and awesome music videos over the years, but nothing quite like what Kina Grannis created for her song, “In Your Arms.”

From start to finish, the video's scenes are made entirely up of jelly beans, with the singer alongside or above them in mesmerizing stop-motion action.

Grannis would lay down on a piece of glass above the frame in odd but precise positions to get every single frame just right. This took her nearly a year.

The result is amazing, though. Check it out below:

It goes without saying that the Internets are an amazing place.

Where else can you find a video of Chris Brown's "Look At Me Now," drawn in MS Paint, Windows 3.0 style, with a near-literal interpretation of the lyrics?

They say everything old is new again. If that's true, CB should consider enlisting this YouTube artiste for his next video. Team Breezy would approve.

If only they had reenacted Chris Brown's Halloween costume ...

We doubt Texas Governor and Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry was really hitting a bottle of Jack before this New Hampshire speech, but you never know.

Perry, who once led public opinion polling for the GOP nomination but now trails Herman Cain and Mitt Romney by wide margins, isn't doing himself many favors.

Slurring and gesturing like a madman while making little sense, Perry waved a blue index card (containing his tax plan), saluted Hugo Chavez and much more.

Watch the highlights below and see how loopy he looked last weekend...

To further illustrate how bad things have gotten for Rick, watch the spoof Perry campaign video below. It's not even that much worse than his actual speeches:

Perhaps if this dirt bike rider paid a little bit more attention to the road ahead and not on filming his high-flying exploits, this incident might have been avoided.

Then again, we wouldn't get to post it here. So there are pros and cons.

You have to wonder what was going through the mind of either party involved ... and why someone chooses to walk around a dirt bike track in the first place.

Check out this clip, which is hilarious after knowing the girl is okay:

A reporter from Michigan’s ABC 7 WXYZ (yes, the station is really WXYZ) was reporting at a big haunted house yesterday, an appropriate local news story for October 31.

She was already visibly uncomfortable heading in, and that was before monsters started appearing out of nowhere freaking her out ... and that was just the beginning.

Soon enough, she received a scare so jolting that she literally doubled over in fear, though it's hard to blame her, as it was pretty elaborate, even for a haunted house.

Check out the Halloween hilarity below ...
