Tricks to play on the treaters

Staying home on halloween waiting for trick or treaters to show up just sooo unfab... BORING! This post is for those of you, like me, who are too old to trick or treat, too young to die. (I'm not being morbid, its a That 70's Show refrence if you didnt catch that!) Why does the question, "trick or treat?" have to be one sided? I'm not telling you to scare the candy out of small children, I'm just saying mess with their heads a little.

If you're friendly with the kids in your neighborhood, and they can take a little abuse from you, you can do what i do. Buy one bag of smarties, and one bag of dum dums to hand out. When the rascals show up, make a big deal out of who deserves which candy. ("Susie gets smarties, but oh no, Billy gets a dum dum!") Feel free to substitute smarties with nerds if you're feeling extra insulting.

The next pranks are my personal favorites from this site- http://www.madnessmansion.com/tricks.htm

-Fill a briefcase with marbles and crackers. Write on it, "Top Secret" in big letters. When trick-or-treaters come, look around suspiciously, say, "It's about time you got here," give them the briefcase, and quickly shut the door.

-When you answer the door, look at the trick-or-treaters, act shocked and scared, and start screaming your head off. Slam the door and run around the house, screaming until they go away.

-Answer the door with a mouthful of M & M's and several half-eaten candy bars in your hands. Act surprised, and close the door. Open it again in a few seconds, and insist that you don't have any candy.

Now if you go to that link, you'll also notice #12 (Get a catapult. Sit on your porch and catapult pumpkins at anyone who comes within 50 yards of your house.) Im not advising you to actually fling large vegtables at pedestrians, but there is a market for pumpkin catapults if you ever feel the need to build one. A few years ago i actually was dragged to a pumpkin flinging festival in Deleware, which turned out to be somewhat fun. Who knew? http://www.punkinchunkin.com/main.htm follow that link for details.
