It’s an unimaginable showcase of household sticking up for household, despite the fact that it’s a prank. Go, mother! You begin to neglect it’s a prank within the first place and begin cheering her on.

It could be funnier if the mom didn’t get so labored up, although. Because the host explains why her daughters pranked her, it hastily sounds so silly. Poor mother.
