Halloween Safety


Hype and Hysteria?

According to  a university professor who researched it, no child has ever been killed or seriously harmed by poisoned candies or fruit. Some of the more paranoid precautions are below. 

  • Don't eat apples. They hide razor blades.

  • Don't eat candy until we take it to the nearest emergency room to have it X-rayed. See above.

  • Don't eat anything that isn't factory-sealed. It is likely to contain poisons, toxins or hallucinogens.

  • Don't eat anything homemade, sealed or otherwise. See above.

  • Don't ring the doorbell of anyone you don't know personally. A pervert might answer.

  • Don't get close to groups of teenagers. They capture children, mummify them in toilet paper and set them on fire.

  • Don't set foot inside anyone's front door. This is the night Satan worshippers have been waiting for.

  • Don't move from your parents' line of sight for a second. Your face will wind up on a milk carton.

  • Don't cross any streets. You'll get hit by a runaway vehicle driven by aforementioned teenagers.

  • Don't run. You will trip over your costume.

  • OK, it could happen, by children run and fall down every day... I know I did...
