Revenge is sweet, ain't it?
*sigh* I wish I were young enough to go around town dressed up like a goof...

they should stage something where the 10-year-old gets to beat the guy up and steal HIS candy :D

"Smithers had thwarted my earlier attempt to take candy from a baby. But with him out of the picture, I was free to wallow in my own crapulence."

I think he should have gotten atleast 40hr community service playing Candyland.

And what about the crotchety old man who puts razor blades in the apples? Will he be sentenced to be sodomized or something?

In what way is that ironic? Seems like the opposite to me...whoever posted this article should read The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. And the mod should hand over their priveleges to me. Promptly.

LOL I think that's funny. The big jerk!

People, this is fark- the ironic tag gets used correctly approximately 1 out of every 100 uses. Most infractions involve coincidences, while others involve things like "fitting punishments," and the like.

His plan was farked up to begin with because he did not realize the saying was "Like taking candy from a baby", but thought it was, "Like taking candy from a 10 year old".

Or be forced to listen to "Candy" by Cameo all night...

"It's like candy(candy)..
Oooh,it's very nice,as a matter of fact,
you don't have to think twice..."

Three years probation for bagsnatching. This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Everyone knows that the punishment for bagsnatching is to get beaten up by the kid's dad, or older brother, and you have to give the candy back. Why would you call the cops because your kid got his Halloween candy stolen?

but the kid could have had money in his bag... some little old lady puts pennies in the kids bags, makes the bag a purse. Pursesnatching is a crime.

The real crime is it wasn't a stolen bag, this 20 year old man hit a 10 year old in order to take the bag... Assult. I would call the police on him. One year in adult prison.

"My name is Butch, I'm here for murder, rape, arson, and cattle rustling. What you in for?"
"stealing candy from a baby..."
"Yeah? I was wondering when they would give me my next biatch."
