    CBD: No trick, no treat!

    Seriously, if a kid comes to your door on beggar's night, he/she better have a joke. Exceptions include very small children and mutes.

    Re: CBD: No trick, no treat!

    what is the purpose of having to tell a joke and why in God's green earth isn't trick or treating done on oh I don't know, Halloween? These so called traditions i've never figured out.

    Whatever.

    Mutes better be prepared with a great mime act if they are getting any of my razor laced candy.

    Re: CBD: No trick, no treat!

    This is a good idea. Thanks for imparting that wisdom, CylentButDeadly. Is tonight Beggar's Night? I've got NO candy.

    Seriously though, is it Beggar's Night in WDM? I'll need to get some candy to hand out.

    Re: CBD: No trick, no treat!

    I never heard of the joke thing til I moved to Des Moines....

    The reason they don't have trick or treat on Halloween is to protect our youngin's from the locos and psychos out on Oct 31st..

    Apparently these people aren't able to read the Trick or Treat schedules in the paper....

    Dear Jr. High Hoodlums

    Showing up at my door in jeans and a sweatshirt wearing a cheap plastic mask you probably ganked from your little brother and using a pillowcase as your "candy bag" will not fly this year. Seriously, those plastic orange pumpkin baskets are like $.99. Besides, you don't need the candy, we all know you're just going to steal whatever you want from your siblings anyway.

    But thanks for trying.

    Sincerely,
    MoreCowbell

    Yes, in Des Moines you can kill goats, cats and children under 30 pounds without consequence on Oct 31. Duh.

    Actually, I think trick or treat originally meant you give the little mosters a treat or you get a trick (like pushing over your outhouse). That has morphed into trick AND treat; whereas the visiting goblins now perform a trick and get a treat in return.

    I had to tell jokes as a youngster growing up in Pleasant Hill and gosh darn it, the rugrats of Windsor Heights will have to tell a joke to get candy from my house.

    It seems that a lot of this stuff is pretty localized. When I first moved to KC I was looking all over for information on when each city had Beggar's Night, finally gave up and asked a coworked who had never heard the term and informed me that everyone goes on the 31st, ya know, since that is Halloween.

    Yeah but when you knock on someones house on the eastside and say trick or treat, you might end up with a girl named Candy, some meth or a black eye.

    Re: CBD: No trick, no treat!

    Screw jokes, I want to see the pipsqueaks do some tricks this year.. When they ring the door bell and say "trick or treat", I'm gonna get them with "ok, I want a trick". No jokes that we've all heard 1000000 times, ( my least favorite, "what's the only bow you can't tie?, A rainbow!") I wanna strangle someone everytime i hear that one. But seriously I'm gonna ask for a trick and I better see some Michael Jackson moves (RIP) or some backflips off my deck or no sir ree bob, there will be no candy, times are tough this year, can you tell?
