Katie Couric In 'Funny Or Die' Video: Bullies Children, Investigates 'The Sillies' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Katie Couric uncovered a shocking and disturbing secret in a video for Funny or Die: a common playtime chant that promises children they can "shake the sillies out" doesn't even work.

The video coincided with a profile Couric did of the web comedy giant for "CBS Sunday Morning." In it, she heads over to a Chelsea preschool to tell a group of adorable tots that the home remedies they've been using to get the sillies (and the "crazies") out of their system are useless.

"You're living a lie," Couric tells the children. But the tables are turned when Couric tries to shake her own sillies away--and winds up becoming the tallest preschool bully we've ever seen.

Watch the video below, and then scroll down to see Couric impress the preschoolers with some magic tricks.
