COOL OR NOT COOL: Tricking Your Kid Into Thinking You Ate All Their Halloween Candy?

Look: I know that Halloween was over days ago and all you btchz probably have your Christmas trees up-n-shit already, but I have literally never laughed so hard in my life.

Apparently Jimmy Kimmel asked his viewers to play a horrific yet hilarious trick on their kids by telling them that they ate all of their Halloween candy. ALL OF IT. No more candy for you, little Stella! Suck it Ezra! Better luck next year, Sufjan!

Furthermore, Jimmy K asked them to videotape the whole thing as it went down.

Needless to say, the results are nothing short of spectacular.

Yeah, so I vote cool.

FIP$ DEAL OF THE WEEK

Hey, remember when we launched FIPS Deals back in May?  Lucky you, when a new FIPS Deal comes on the market, we're going to highlight it here so you'll know exactly what you can save money on next.  Like what you see?  Head over to our Deals page to see what else we've got up in here.    

Clean sweep

Take a look around at all of the old magazines piling up on the coffee table and the dust bunnies that are colonizing in the corner even though you “Swiffered” last week.  You know your apartment could use a good scrub-down.  How about you call Cleaning Brooklyn and let them do it for you?  They offer standard home and office cleaning services as well as laundry and ironing at prices even bloggers can afford.  Hell, they'll even clean out your fridge and freezer (you know Ketchup expires, right?).

Brokelyn Gives Us the Best Places To Watch The NYC Marathon Go By

The ING New York City Marathon is this Sunday, and our friends at Brokelyn have made a great list of places in Brooklyn to watch all 47,000 runners pass by (side note: you know how LOTS of runners eat bananas during the race? Ever see someone slip on a peel? That HAS to have happened before, right?)
