Child Attempts To Put Balls In Tube…Or Does He?

In what seems like the perfect metaphor for life in general, this industrious young man is recorded struggling against forces he can’t even comprehend. Replacing the balls and righting the wrongs seems easy enough at first glance. If you don’t look too hard, you can even see how he might believe he’s making progress — the balls are going into the tube, right? It seems like a success to him, anyway. Alas, this work is never done. Gravity, as it seems to do so often, interferes, and the balls are right back where they started: on the floor. It’s a hard lesson. Thanks to America’s Funniest Home Videos, he may only need to learn it once.
