    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.

    At least he saved you from being kidnapped by some pervert, kids. Look on the bright side. He’s looking after your safety as well as your dental health.

    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.

    Shame on you John eating the kids’ candy like that!

    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.

    The reason Lizzie is not trick-or-treating with them is because:

    a. John can’t eat the homemade treats for 3 kids. His limit is 2.

    b. She is too slow to keep with the boys, and John is too busy eating to carry her.

    c. This strip is reprinted from the first year of the comic strip, before Lizzie was old enough to walk.

    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

    When I was a kid, I lived a block over from a man who owned a bakery. He gave out yummy pastries every year, our parents all knew him and knew they were safe.

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