The Marshmallow Test: Cute or Cruel?

Filed under: Funny Stuff


We all know that patience is a virtue; we also know that it's a virtue young children don't always have in large amounts. Or at all. Especially when there's candy involved. So when these kids are left alone in a room with a gigantic marshmallow and a promise that if they do not eat it, they can have another, what happens? Watch the video and see.

And then tell us -- is this the cutest thing you've ever seen, or is it just cruel?
