Pizilla: [stuffpoint.com image 300x450]

Show me your mossy bank


Despite the possible impending mutilation and violence in that scene, that line made me laugh.

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

There's no pleasing some people.



Who would want to live in the house and drive the car of people who give out Whopper malted balls for Halloween?

I be. A step up from candy corn, yet somehow more insulting.

Usually I'm perfectly fine with calling out stupid parents but I don't really think her reaction was so outrageous. Obviously a 10 year old should be smart enough not to hurt herself but if someone is making a joke of passing out packaged razors, if they ended up in the bag of a smaller child who thought it was a toy, it was worth letting other parents know so they they could check the bags extra carefully.

She might not have known which house put it in, and it sounds like they visited multiple streets, so she told the HOA so that other parents could be alerted. It probably didn't need to be a news article but it doesn't seem unreasonable.

First of all, it's called a safety razor for a reason. Secondly, if she was worried about neighborhood safety rather than waning neighborhood exclusivity, she would have called the cops, not the HOA. And someone dumb enough to do any of this in the first place, is also dumb enough to have made the whole thing up.

Every year we hear about the candy doctored with a razor blade. It doesn't happen. The biggest psycho in town knows that the blow back from doing this would be epic. If it was ever reported it would trump everything else in the news. Trust me, the police would never be called. It would truly be a mob with torches and pitchforks.

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: 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.


You did not, but that's farking funny!

So your problem with it is that it wasn't dangerous enough to warrant any action but also that she should have raised more of a fuss and called the cops? There aren't enough details in the article to tell whether or not she and her daughter traveled outside of the bounds of her HOA so I don't automatically assume her issue is with "neighborhood exclusivity".

Seems to me that since it wasn't razor blades in candy or anything obviously malicious she might not have thought it was something that required police attention, but that it might be a good idea to alert the neighborhood to make sure nothing bad happened. Maybe she made it up...but I'm just having trouble understanding the anger here.

addy2: " unacceptable." hate that overused word. Usually voiced by the "I'm in charge here" asshats.


Well said, and very very true. I always subconsciously clench my fists to deck the nimrod who said it.

Either Mommy put it there, or it's a funny joke. And if I were the cops, I'd be asking Mommy a few questions right now, because historically the only time something funny's happened with candy, the parents were involved...

/If this is an AW, I really hope it backfires.

My bet is it was an innocent mistake. Someone goes grocery shopping for last minute hallowe'en candy and decides to get some razor blades and other assorted items at the same time. Comes home, trick or treaters are already ringing the bell. In a haste grabs all the bags of candy and dumps them into a bowl and accidentally dumps a few disposable razors in the bowl too.

In the ever increasing need to grab attention on store shelves all packaging has become a generic wash of overstimulated noise. Razor blade packaging looks not dissimilar from candy packaging from dog treat packaging etc. etc.

Probably happens a dozen times across the country each hallowe'en. All it takes is one "ZOMG! WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!" to propel a non-story into the news.

You sound kind of angry. I was just making an observation and offering my opinion, the same as anyone else here.

Be as the buddhist. Detatch yourself from desires. Welcome observations about your words and refine your words to eliminate observations for then you can attain nirvana. The path to happiness is to not have any situation that can make you unhappy. The world of FARK is an illusion. It is not the real world and you should not allow yourself to be made unhappy by any event that transpires within its boundaries.

Ah, the great HOA that is Florida. Can we just put up a fence that says "no admittance, unless you are a Disney World ticket holder and therefore get an extended pass for up to 14 days?"

/Hate, hate Floriduh with every fibre in my being. Ask me wha/t I do for a living, if you dare. It's not trollworthy, of that I can assure and is quite boring otherwise.

Hate to be the one to piss on your parade, but Myrtle Beach is in South Carolina.
