    Today’s strip is entitled “Why Teachers Hate November 1.”

    I learned as a kid, that after a couple of sweets on a mildly empty stomach, I actually DID feel sick. How many 10 y/o’s do you know that actually agree with their folks when they say one piece a night after dinner?

    Ah, the post-Halloween sugar rush.

    LOL!! So true! :-) I think they cheer when Halloween is on a Friday or Saturday night.

    Our six- and ten-year-old got sick, too, after eating too many sweets. (The twelve- and fifteen-year-old didn’t indulge that much.) And, true, NObody ever agreed on the one-piece-per-night rule. Now that the six-year-old can get stuff from the top of the fridge with a grabber, nothing is safe!

    Oh, is Jan ever going to get polite notes from at least some of those brands for not using the proper trademark symbols.

    BobBlumenfeld, no she won’t. You can reference the name of an item without getting sued for trademark violation. And I seriously doubt that Hershey’s wants to file a lawsuit against a friggin cartoonist and get that kind of bad press.

    I estimate that if I allowed my kids only 1 piece a night, they would still be eating Halloween candy at Easter. I allow 3 pieces at a time, up to 4 times a day. After the first week they can fill a quart sized bag with the part of their plunder they get to keep. The remainder goes away (usually to work).

    My one-year old granddaughter took her first steps yesterday when her 4 year old brother dumped his Halloween haul on the coffee table! She saw the goods and just hussled over to grab a share! True, and so funny!!

    And over at Wizard of Id the wags are asking how much Hart Studio is getting paid for product placement!

    With most candy, it isn’t the sugar that makes you sick. It’s all the corn syrup and artificial ingredients.
