atomic-age: Ivo Shandor: "...but Worrell worries what could have happened if she had not checked the contents first..."

Scenario #1: Kid looks at it, sees it's not candy, ignores it.
Scenario #2: "Mommy, this lollipop tastes like bleeding."

Guess which one is going to happen every. farking. time. in the real world. Save your outrage and hysteria for something like this.

Giving cocaine away for free?

Can I dress up and go trick or treating there?

Alright, we can go trick or treating together...

I think you may be on to something.

MISLEADING HEADLINE ... I thought it was one of these:

Anyone have the link to the FBI finding that the razor blade scare from years ago turned out to be the parents?

With all the 16-18 year old crowd out gathering candy - they should include condoms with the razors.
 
2012-11-03 01:35:19 PM  

atomic-age: . The kids at my high school used to tape razors to the locker of one cheerleader who had a prominent moustache.

I hate how stupid we have become about Halloween, we have convinced parents that all they can accept is refined sugar, pre-packaged by large corporations (and I say that as a libertarian who has no moral problem with large corporations). Next year my wife is baking cookies and brownies. If kids don't eat it, oh well. If they do they will have a something delicious.

"It could have been a joke, but it's just unacceptable,"

it could have? IT COULD HAVE?!? humorless coont.
 
2012-11-03 01:40:14 PM  
Is it even possible to hurt yourself, even if you're a child, in any way but superficial with a disposable razor?

A stupid joke, sure, but c'mon...
 
2012-11-03 01:41:30 PM  
A friend of mine gave out Halls when he ran out of candy.

betcha nothing but mommy and the girl's prints show up.
 
2012-11-03 01:54:10 PM  

loveblondieo: Those things are expensive. Should have sent the kid for another round to get the replacement blades.


Not necessarily. You can get a 10-pack of the cheapo version of the disposable Bic razors at Dollar Tree for $1.

I'm more inclined to think it was either done as a joke by someone in the area where the girl went trick-or-treating, or maybe someone ran out of candy and tossed that in the bag instead.
 
2012-11-03 01:55:15 PM  
This is absolutely f*cking hilarious.

First of all, without reading TFA I can tell you EXACTLY why this person started doing this - he (or she or them) was TIRED of having 16+ year olds coming to the house...not in costume and carrying a pillowcase...and begging for candy.

I used to hand out job applications in envelopes. We lived in a very nice neighborhood...halloween saw a pretty heavy traffic of little kids, all excited and cute and dressed up - they ALL got nice candy. THEN...later in the night, come the VANS...literal vans full of..uh...urban yoots...your Travons, your Damonts, your Newports, your Sinutabs. Note it's not about the color, it's about the AGE. I'm just saying data-wise in my case they tended to be 99% of the above. And all male - no women.

So I'm guessing this dude observed the same and started dumping safety razors. Dangerous? Hardly. Expensive? Kinda! Funny? As hell.
 
2012-11-03 01:59:10 PM  
Or possibly dad put it on the counter before the kids did the grand "candy sort" and now he is keeping his mouth shut because he knows what's good for him.
 
2012-11-03 02:02:03 PM  

KrispyKritter: Archie Goodwin: It's not a razor, it's a message.

bingo! and the woman is so incredibly stupid the not so subtle hint flies right over her empty head. OMG, her husband must have bit his lower lip right in half to keep from laughing. the entire neighborhood is going to be bringing this up every Halloween until most of them are dead.

even her little girl is going to catch on in a few years. why is my mommy a clueless moran?

i am so glad my wife is not a stupid woman. i loathe stupid women.


I hear ya...and it's hard work to loathe 99.99% of 50% of the population.
 
2012-11-03 02:03:11 PM  

whizbang: "appeared to still be in it's original package, but Worrell worries what could have happened"

I'm more worried about the misused apostrophe


Also this. It was probably in the same shopping back with the candy. If she knew who it was, she could go chat with that person privately rather than tattling to the HOA. Let the pearl-clutching begin.

A bic razor? Damn that is funny. I suppose it would be inappropriate to also hand out condoms (saying that they are balloons.)

and this

[www.gomauri.com image 200x200]

Are not the same. How exactly is this news? Unless the mom is completely hirsute and dad is a full face beard man I imagine they have razors in the house. Or is this the type of woman who tapes foam to all the corners in the house?


Kid has a hairlip?

That's a suggestion.

Place in mailbox, or leave on doorstep.

The razor must have been a sympathy present for the mother. It's sad when a woman's hirsuteness is visible from the street, at night...


:P
 
2012-11-03 02:28:52 PM  
I'm going to save the boxes from my safety blades and toss them in trick or treaters' bags along with candy. Hilarity may not ensure.

Maybe the kid had a beard.
 
2012-11-03 02:33:25 PM  
Among adults or friends, this is actually really funny. I laughed when I read the story. However, when played as a prank anonymously on a child, it's really kind of creepy.
 
2012-11-03 02:36:14 PM  

tomWright: You know your child is hairy when someone starts anonymously donating razors to you.

/Did mom fark a Yeti or something?


You can't prove that.
 
2012-11-03 02:37:52 PM  

AbbeySomeone: If a wrapped, unused razor is a threat to your ten year old you have failed as a parent.


Yeah. Obviously it was a joke.

No, sometimes it actually happens but not at the 70s"OMG. Razor blades in apples!" level. Friends in Mastic Beach, LI, took their 7-yo trick or treating last year and in her bag of candy was a Cascade dishwasher tablet, still wrapped. They are relatively normal people, not batshiat overprotective at all. Dad went ballistic & called cops. They couldn't remember which house it came from but he flagged down every parent on the street. One other kid had the same thing. That parent laughed it off--tried to remember which house had a senile old lady or bored teenager handing out candy.

Friend wasn't so cavalier. He knew his daughter wasn't dumb enough to eat it but what about a younger kid? Still, not poisonous or really harmful but it bugged him that maybe someone thought this was an acceptable practical joke.

You might want to read TFA. The girl is 10-years old, not 16+.

You're the jerk... jerk: I hate how stupid we have become about Halloween, we have convinced parents that all they can accept is refined sugar, pre-packaged by large corporations (and I say that as a libertarian who has no moral problem with large corporations). Next year my wife is baking cookies and brownies. If kids don't eat it, oh well. If they do they will have a something delicious.


Since I've lived here, I've had 2 big, goofy dogs that the neighborhood kids love to play with. So, most of the kids and parents know us. I make cupcakes, brownies, and chocolate-covered pretzels to hand out. The time I did this, we'd already lived here 4 years. Every parent told their kid, "it's okay to take one at this house--we know them".

That bugged me. ALL of those tainted candy stories have been false. Why the hell can't everyone just hand out what they want without having to feel like a potential criminal? Besides, brownies & cupcakes are WAY cheaper than packaged candy.,

What razor blades before hidden inside apples and candy may look like.

For all the cupcakes, brownies, and popcorn balls that my girlfriend made on Halloween, you're right -- we should have handed those out instead.

So the ten year old kid couldn't tell a packaged razor from a handful of candy thrown in her bag? You would think the kid would go 'wow, that's weird, Mrs.So and So gave me a packaged razor'.

Razor blades? Meh. I used to slip ice cubes into the paper bags a lot of the younger kids used, then sent out my own kid to follow them and score the dropouts from the torn bags. Then she would bring home the candy and we would hand THAT out. We would generally get through every Halloween with only one small bag of candy.
 
2012-11-03 05:15:22 PM  

SwiftFox: Psylent1: NutWrench: That's a weird Halloween gift.

They ran out of toothpaste.

Probably pulled it out of the same bag from the drugstore they brought the candy home in.

I once got someone's car and house keys in a little paper bag, and had to go back and knock on more doors to find out whose. Finally, "No, we haven't lost... hey those are our keys!" and since trick-or-treating was over, They gave me about a hundred packages of Whopper malted milk balls they had left over.


Somebody gives you a house and a car for Halloween and you take it back?

There's no pleasing some people.
