Jimmy Kimmel Makes a Child's Dream Come True (VIDEO)

Jimmy Kimmel Makes a Dying Kid's Wish Come True (Sort of)Jimmy Kimmel and his guest Gabourey Sidibe both really care. They care a lot. In fact, they care so much ... that it hurts. Literally.

On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), 'Precious' star Sidibe shows up in Jimmy's dressing room along with an adorable 7-year-old moppet. Sidibe apparently works for the "Make a Dream" foundation, and she's brought along little Emily from Connecticut, who is dying. They've come to see Jimmy in the hope that he can fulfill Emily's dream.

Jimmy is prepared for Emily, with decorations and balloons. But then he learns what her actual dream is: Little Emily's last wish is to "kick a celebrity in the nuts." Kimmel is a little flustered by this twist. "Huh?" he says. " What kind of a dream is that?"

Well, it won't be an easily achievable dream, if the host has his way. At this point, he tries to back out of the whole thing. Luckily, Sidibe is there to grab Jimmy and hold him down, so that Emily can have a shot at her last request. Obviously, there is no "Make a Dream" foundation, and it's all a gag, but still ... a little girl kicking Jimmy in the groin. It's not a perfect dream, but it's still a good one.
