    Keep that up, John, and you may be looking for a dentist…or maybe a weight loss clinic. Maybe both?

    Aww, Mike’s costume is really cute!! And Lawrence makes a great little Batman too, lol xD

    Gee, you’d think John could have gotten into the spirit of things, even just a little bit! Even a set of fake fangs, because he’s certainly doing more than his fair share of the chompin’!!!

    Btw, have a Happy Halloween everybody! :o))

    I remember my dad doing that. Happy Halloween everyone. Be safe, there are little spooks about, and if you see any aliens sneaking about, dont call the cops, its little kids, but they will invade your yard to conquer your candy, or liberate you from your candy, depends on if they are friendly or not.

    Dad always said, “Don’t eat any of the candy until you get home and I check it out.” Yeah, right Dad.

    I suppose dad has to check out all the good toys at Christmas too.

    y’all are just reading to much real life into FBOFW - it is a cartoon and John is not a jerk.

    The kids get the wrapped stuff- unless they know someone well, most parents won’t give kids toffee apples or popcorn balls these days (or even in the 70s when I was a kid). He really is taking one for the team!

    Better than on another group I’m on where a woman said about 50% of the parents out there throw out most or ALL of their kids’ candy as soon as they get home, because it’s not good for them. One night, or even a week, of candy isn’t going to do any lasting harm.

    John, you should just toss the ‘home made’ items away, don’t even trust them. That’s the way it was at OUR house (unless we REALLY knew the person, then it was ok to eat it [ie if Grandma made us special snack.]))

    Anyway, I need brains. If you can sit still I’ll only take a moment to eat yours :D

    Where are their masks or face paint? The fun of Halloween (besides the candy) is changing your face.

    The best Halloween treat I got was from a man that had 4 big threatening looking dogs that ran free in his yard. The kid that I was trick or treating with was this man’s paperboy. He knew the dogs weren’t mean. The guy gave us two full sized candy bars each, plus a bottle of pop and a 50 cent piece each.

    Bad home made treats is an urban legend. Have any of you actualy ever found anything bad in one? Have you ever seen an article in the paper or on the news that showed something actualy found in them?. But no I never let my kids eat them either we threw them out.

    There’s a little bit to the legend, fbjsr I remember watching the news when I was in High School in Texas, and razor blades in apples was popular. I remember seeing the xray image of it on TV. There was also the Candy Man….the guy who put cyanide in giant pixie sticks and gave the two tampered ones to his son and his son’s friend. He got death and dead he is.

    I have been searching and I can’t find anything anywhere about a kid injured by halloween treats (unless you count cavities) The razor blade was put in there by the guy who took it to be xrayed. Sort of like the needles in pepsi scare a few years ago. I find nothing about the Cany Man. Even if this did happen it was a person killing his own son and trying to make it look like some one else did it. Not somebody handing out intentionaly bad treats.
