This is a bit curious as they say here in the south. Our Trick or Treaters here are way too careful with their goodies to loose it. Either of my grand daughters would probably knife you if you got too close to their candy.

Kids don't trick or treat in the neighborhoods I service...too far between houses. It's been about 10 years since a kid rang our doorbell on Halloween.

Strange tradition...bascially begging with a threat of harm if you don't hand over some goodies while wearing a disguise so people won't know who you are. Nice thing to teach our children............

I hand out razor blades instead of candy.

I got your trick right here, kid.

I have never found Halloween candy on the ground. I did find a King size Hershey bar in a shopping cart once and ate it. The guy in front of me bought it and walked to his car while I was checking out. He was returning his cart to the cart corral as I was walking by. I loaded my groceries and returned my cart and noticed he had left his candy bar. I looked for him to return it but by that time he was gone. No point in letting it go to waste.

Ya, dude. I think you're the only one. Kinda gross.

Candy is freakin' cheap anyway. If I wanted some, I'd just go buy some. I don't see the point in eating candy dropped in a soggy lawn. Seems a little nasty, even though it's probably still safe.

I have to say I don't eat the grounders. I know they may be sealed and look good but something about candy on the ground doesn't work for me. I also hate trying to blow leaves out of those novel new styrofoam gravestones that were so fashionable this halloween. No match for the redmax.

I'm with the misses, although it's probably not much worse than eating RUR corn or Bti soy or growth hormone modified salmon.

But no, I don't eat things off the ground (unless I grew them on my ground), or out of the garbage. This reminds me of George Costanza eating the eau claire out of the garbage, lol.


Jerry Seinfeld: So let me get this straight. You find yourself in the kitchen. You see an éclair in the receptacle... and you think to yourself: "What the hell, I'll just eat some trash."
George Louis Costanza: No, no, no. It was not trash.
Jerry Seinfeld: Was it in the trash?
George Louis Costanza: Yes.
Jerry Seinfeld: Then it was trash.
George Louis Costanza: It wasn't down in. It was sort of on top.
Jerry Seinfeld: But it was in the cylinder.
George Louis Costanza: Above the rim.
Jerry Seinfeld: Adjacent to refuse is refuse.
George Louis Costanza: It was on a magazine, and it still had the doily on.
Jerry Seinfeld: Was it eaten?
George Louis Costanza: One little bite.
Jerry Seinfeld: Well, that's garbage.
George Louis Costanza: But I know who took the bite. It was her aunt.
Jerry Seinfeld: You, my friend, have crossed the line that divides man and bum. You are now a bum.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Cosmo Kramer: Jerry, you stand on the threshold to the magical world of sensual delights that most men dare not dream of.
Jerry Seinfeld: Boy, you can really talk some trash.
Jerry Seinfeld: [to George] I guess that's better than eating it.

Thus proving that Seinfeld has a lesson for everything
