Mom tricks kid, makes him cry, and you get to watch! Fun! Right?

Posted on

The Internet is flooded with videos that parents took of their kids, ranging from the hilarious to the disturbing. You tell me which category this one of a South Dakota mom tricking her kid into thinking he’d bought a $50,000 Mustang on eBay should fall into.

Mom Paula Papen was on the Today Show this morning with her son and said that she’d caught some flack for the video but  that “teaching your kids to have a sense of humor is pretty important, and teaching them to take a joke is a good deal, too.”

Is this a funny enough joke for you?
