    Should it be illegal for teenagers to trick or treat?

    Cities are passing laws making it illegal for teenagers to go trick or treating.

    Wasn't there an episode of "Freaks and Geeks" about this?

    Re: Should it be illegal for teenagers to trick or treat?

    It should be illegal to Trick or Treat on any night other than Halloween night. And it should be illegal for kids to tell stupid jokes instead of saying "Trick or Treat".

    I hate everything about beggars night.

    Celebrate Halloween or don't celebrate anything at all.

    I give out candy judging by my opinion of your costume. If I don't like it, you don't get candy.

    Really, I'm shocked I haven't been vandalised yet.

    Is the joke thing unique to Iowa? When I left the state, people looked at me like I was from another planet when I mentioned it.

    wow - illegal?

    its candy you're giving away, not gold coins. Buy an extra bag, serve the big kids the crappy stuff if you must - lots of sweet tarts, but comeon, its Halloween - its a good time

    teenagers trick r treating is about the most harmless thing they could do - you want them drinking or busting up your yard? chill people.

    Yes. It's stupid and needs to be stopped.

    Everyone else just says "Trick or Treat". The way it should be.

    I've never had this experiance ... the kids tell the joke or you have to?

    does hearing a joke anger people? I'm guessing this is laffytaffy style stuff ... just relax and let the funny happen.

    yeah, I'm confused by this as well. Anyone want to explain it?

    losing a lot of cash? you have 4 levels of halloween:

    0-12: Kid, trickrtreat
    13-17: teenagers, nothing to do ... find some booze and throw some pumpkins.
    18-24: college glorious festival of whoures
    25-dead: take kids, grandkids trickrtreating or go to halloween parties

    why not let teens trickrtreat? they cant slut it up yet, and its better than the alternative. I suppose we could just have them stay home and hate their parents ...
