Trick or Treat - Wayne Brady

I enjoy Halloween. Something about helping the kids enjoy their youthfulness, I guess. But when did it become acceptable for adults to Trick-or-Treat? I suspect they are from the neighboring trailor park, I've never seen them around here. The neighborhood parents escort their kids, that's all good. But these Trailer folks came out, in NO costume, using either pillow cases or Target bags talking about "Trick or Treat". I'm thinking... "You're the TRICK" but refrained from speaking, didn't want a brick thrown at my window.

I also know for a fact that some houses had kids meet at their house before they went out. Maybe those families came from apartment complexes, or someplace dangerous, I don't know. But what I do know is that when a mob of kids come to the house, it's no longer a courteous request for candy. I have a young, tall rose plant right by my door. It's part of my garden. Yes, it has those big thorns! Guess what? It now has now no thorns. These damn rugrats trounced all through my garden!!! I'm glad my rose fought back, and stuck their little asses. After seeing my the leaves of my plants scattered everywhere, I decided that the next kid that rings my doorbell... I'm going to come out in costume, with fully functioning accessories, yelling I'm Wayne Brady BITCH!!!

Halloween isn't a big thing here in Australia, in fact this year there were no trick or treaters to be seen. We do have some very good halloween parties at friends houses or night clubs, but it's more an adult affair. What I find amusing, in a dry way, is that we tell our children not to talk to strangers and not to take sweets from strangers, hell we have entire 'stranger danger' awareness days in schools... then comes halloween and it's suddenly a free for all, let your kids run wild, knocking on any strangers door and gathering heaven knows what from them.... I guess it's one of those things you have to experience to logically justify *shrug*

Another good example of bourgeois snobbery.
