Subject: ways to confuse trick ot treaters

Written By: whitewolf on 10/17/06 at 7:02 pm

thought of this by Cats post on the are you going to dress up for hallween thread

Ways to confuse Trick-Or-Treaters

Give away something other than candy. (Toothpicks, golf balls, pencils, etc.)

Wait behind the door until some people come. When they get near the door, jump out, wearing a costume, and holding a bag, and yell, "Trick or Treat!" Look at them, scratch your head, and act confused.

Fill a briefcase with marbles and crackers. Write on it, "Top Secret" in big letters. When trick-or-treaters come, look around suspiciously, say, "It's about time you got here," give them the briefcase, and quickly shut the door.

After you give them candy, hand the trick-or-treaters a bill.

Open the door dressed as a giant fish. Immediately collapse, and don't move or say anything until the trick-or-treaters go away.

When you answer the door, look at the trick-or-treaters, act shocked and scared, and start screaming your head off. Slam the door and runaround the house.

Insist that the trick-or-treaters each do ten push-ups before you give them any candy.

Hand out menus to the trick-or-treaters and let them order their candy.

Answer the door dressed as a pilgrim. Stare at the trick-or-treaters for a moment, pretend to be confused, and start flipping through a calendar.

Instead of candy, give away colored eggs. If anyone protests, explain that the eggs are the only thing you had left over from Easter.

Answer the door dressed as a dentist. Angrily give the trick-or-treaters a two-hour lecture on tooth decay.

Put a crown on a pumpkin and put the pumpkin on a throne on your porch. Insist that all of the trick-or-treaters bow before the pumpkin.

Trick or treating is quite a recent thing in the UK so I'm not sure we've quite grasped it all yet.  I remember reading years ago that you would pay someone before you got the treat by telling a joke or singing a song or something.  Is that what is supposed to happen?

Also what would you do if you called at a house and they didn't give you a treat?

When I was a kid, some houses asked us to sing or something similar to that, but most of them just gave us candy.  I don't mind giving candy to the kids at all, especially since I got it as a kid.  It's like the circle of life.  I'm glad you guys are adopting it - it is one of my favorite childhood memories! 

As for houses that don't give you a treat, tradition says you are to play a trick on them - hence the phrase "Trick or Treat."  I never played tricks though, I just went on to the next house.

around here nobody expects the trick or treaters to do anything for their treat, they just give out the treat. any house that is not giving out anything usually leaves their outdoor lights off so that the kids know that there is nothing for them there.

When I run out of candy, I turn off the porch light and sure enough, there are still who come knocking even though the light is out.  >:(

He'll bark if someone walks by the curb, they don't even have to come to the front door.  With my dad in Charlotte now, he's super-protective of us, more so than usual.  Last year we got complaints from the neighbors because of our dog barking all night everytime someone came to the door.  And I refuse to chain him up in the backyard just so we can pass out candy.  The dog stays in the house with the rest of the family.

Absolutely. I don't understand why so many people who own dogs don't seem to give a damn. They put the dog in the backyard and forget about it. And then the dog starts barking loudly (so the whole neighborhood can hear it) because it wants attention.

Our pets are members of the family.  They eat in the house, they sleep in the house.  The only time our dog has eaten outside was when my dad was painting the kitchen and we gave him his dinner outside.  We take him outside plenty to run around and play and get some wind in his fur, but then he goes back in the house.

We take our dog outside usually when she needs to do business. When she has to go, then we let her out into the back. Sometimes she likes to come out while we're mowing the lawn or doing other yardwork. Most of the time she's indoors, though. By the way, what kind of dog do you have? Mine's a chihuahua.

See, when I was a kid, there was a run-down house at the end of Blood Road where mean old Mr. Pinkney lived.  No trick-or-treaters approached his house EVER!  The perennial rumor went like this, three kids called on Mr. Pinkney one Halloween.  Pinkney answered the door and told the kids to open their trick-or-treat bags, whereupon Pinkney proceeded to pee in all three of their bags!
http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/13/laughing7.gif
Of course this was bogus.  Kids make up stuff about grownups they don't like.  Pinkney didn't like kids, dogs, and tax assessors.  I have a theory Pinkney started the rumor himself sometime in the '60s to insure kids didn't annoy him on Halloween. 

Yes, it was really called Blood Road, named after some or other Mr. Blood way back when.

Instill treats with LSD.  That's keep 'em confused for a while!

Speaking of...
Every year the same two dire warnings went around:
1. Razor blades in apples.
2. Poisons or drugs in candy.
I have never heard of either of these actually happening.  Snopes.com relates no confirmed random poisonings.  However, there are several instances of needles and razors inserted into treats.  Why should one be true and the other not?  Simple.  It's the difference between trying to injure and trying to kill.  Snopes makes no mention at all of drug-laced candy, though it's one I heard.

Do you think our East Timorian Founding Fathers complained and whined about itchy dresses?  No, now get out there like a true soldier and blow stuff up...fireworks, Andy.  We don't need another "situation".


Is it one of those religious disputes, or do they just not want to do it, or have reasons like Sister Morphine's family?


I remember when I was five or six, my mother told me that Halloween is the devil's birthday.  Now, I know that my mother is a smarter woman than that, so I assume she just told me that so I would shut up.  However, she has pointed out that the holiday has a dark history with the Druids, and that may be why she doesn't like it, but I suspect it's mostly just she doesn't want to put up with it.


Knowing his mother as well as I do, I'd say religious. She balked at my suggestion of seeing an R rated movie.


Dude, my mom is strict about R rated movies.  All the R rated movies on television are put on parental lock, so you have to enter four certain digits to watch them.  It's ridiculous, I'm fifteen, and I've rented/checked out R rated films before anyways, the only two I can readily recall being "1984" and "Monty Python's The Meaning Of Life".

Davey, Davey, Davey...... That's what using Google image search is all about.

You should know better than to challenge a person with an extremely eccentric mind. If you post comments like that with keyword combinations like goat and girl, I can look it up on Google. Speaking of which....

Edit: It's not a cartoon image, but here you go...

Well, I'm not about to put any Klingon naughty parts in my image account. :D

I might be eccentric, but I'm not insane(although I'm sure a few of you disagree).

Stand in the doorway.. just stare at them. If they move, raise a hand slowly and point toward the road. I just did that. They looked freaked out. Little jerks.

Ways to confuse trick or treaters?  Have multiple doors on the house, any of which could be the front door that you are supposed to knock on to get treats.  or better yet, have NO front door at all.  :D
