Happy Halloween (a rerun?)

Happy Halloween everyone!  Because of the holiday, I wanted to write a quick post about the holiday, but as Beer knows…I’m too lazy.  So I began to wonder, if TV shows can get away with…can you rerun a blog?  Then I figured, nah..that’s too cheesy…so I decided to do like some of the old cartoons and three stoogies episodes…I’ll splice some old content with a bit of new and call it a new blog!

Here are some tips for the Halloween Trick or Treaters tonight:

* If you’re holding hands with anyone but your parents or grandparents while treat or treating….you’re probably too old.

* If you’re talking on a cell phone while coming up to my door holding out your bag…you’re probably too old to trick or treat.

* If you have boobs that would make a super model jealous and they aren’t balloons or another fake item…you’re probably too old to trick or treat.

* If your costume consist of a basketball jersey and a basketball…you’re probably too old to trick or treat.

*If your brother/sister is sick or grounded and you were carrying a bag for them….they probably shouldn’t get any candy for a reason.

*If you’re going to put up a huge halloween display weeks before, you probably want to actually be there to pass out candies on the actual day.

*I get it if you don’t believe in the holiday, no worries, but to leave your light on and trick the kids into coming to hear the “word”….wrong.

*I also get it if your neighborhood is so bad that you have to take your kids somewhere else so they can be safe. But come on…..park the car and walk with them! This driving along side of the road as they go house to house is cheesy.

*Finally, in these tough times, I get the buying the cheapest candy possible. I also get that you are only giving out one piece of bubblegum as a treat. I just want to thank those people that go against the grain and actually still give out bags of potato chips….You guys are awesome!

Now I’ll leave you with a bit of Detroit Nostalgia:

Day after thoughts….

It’s the day after the Halloween holiday and it got me thinking of some of the things that came up last night and from seasons past. I thought I’d place them here and see if anyone else agrees with my thoughts.
