Good News, I Scared My Son.
Bad News: This has nothing to do with the video but it is a true story.
Good News: That makes this real news.

Sunday morning my five year old son wanted to watch Jaws because Jaws is in Lego Batman. I told him that Jaws is too scary of a movie for him to watch, he told me that he is not afraid of anything, so I thought I would put him to the test.
Good News: I did not grant his request and let him watch Jaws.
I put on Pee Wee’s Big Adventure.
As we watched Pee Wee’s Big Adventure he kept telling me that it’s not scary, I told him to keep watching and he did, then came the Large Marge scene.
At first I thought that he was not phased by Large Marge because he just stood there, frozen for a minute, then he ran out of the living room crying… Large Marge got another.
Good News: Eventually he overcame his fear of Large Marge.
Bad News: He overcame his fear of Large Marge after I checked his room for her to make sure that she was not hiding anywhere and enlisting Lego Batman to watch over my son as he slept so that Large Marge would not get him.
I don’t know if I should feel bad or not about what I have done, all I know is that I find it way too amusing that I have to check my son’s room for Large Marge before he goes to sleep.
Remember parents, if you want to scare your kids, just tell them: Large Marge sent me.
