Oh yeah? I'm pushing for him to be required to sell it to anyone who can pass a checkup.

Evil farking dentists.

I bet all he gets are those orange and black wrapped molasses abominations.

November 1, buy all the leftovers and make a profit selling it back to him.

As a dentist, should he be hoping kids eat as much candy as they can fit in their pillow cases?

I predict a rise in the number of bully-related candy-muggings.

"Dark chocolate can also be a good choice because of the presence of antioxidants, which are good for the heart and lower blood pressure."

Hey baby, how about I help you lower your blood pressure?

Step 1: Collect Halloween candy.

Step 2: Sell to helicopter dentist.

Step 3: PROFIT!

A dollar a pound is pennies on the dollar. This has all kinds of abuse written all over it.

At those prices you would have to be a complete moron to take him up on this, even the cheap-ass bulk bags of candy sell for more than $1 a pound.

I'd get a crapload of candy, along with a couple of friends, then cull out the worst stuff (like those hideous orange- and black-wrapped peanut/maple taffy abominations, and Necco Wafers), sell that back and split the proceeds.

Yeah, but the kids get it for free, so it's pure profit.

$20 says he is just trying to get a large amount of candy as cheap as possible...
 
2013-10-17 10:02:03 PM
He's not doing it to get cheap candy.  He's doing it to get cheap advertising.

/It looks like it's working.

He better be giving out guns if he wants to get my good candy. How many Fun Size (not really fun) Milky Way, Snickers,  and 3 Musketeers for a nice Glock? What's the going rate for an AR-15 automatic assault shotgun?

Old. We had a local dentist do this and donate all the candy to a charity that sent it to soldiers to rot their teeth out instead.

Was about to post a pic of Christopher Lee as Willy Wonka's Dad, see that Saturn5 already has. Leaving satisfied.

How exciting. Something that happens every year is happening again.


can we have a "Sun will rise in the east" thread tomorrow?
 
2013-10-17 10:57:53 PM
Bet this will be like gun buybacks, lots of old rusty guns, cheap revolvers, ect.

Lots of mary jane candies (orange/black peanut butter candies you tokers), candy corn, smarties, ect.

The snickers, M&M's, kit kats may not last the night.

\Has anyone noticed what passes for fun size is really fricking tiny.
 
2013-10-17 11:03:29 PM
why is this news?  it happens every year, probably in every major city and those that are not
 
2013-10-17 11:14:32 PM
For every peace of candy you buy back. I'll eat two.

Dental care for young kids confuses me.

The teeth fall out on their own anyway and get replaced by new ones.   Sure, teach them about keeping care of their teeth, but why spend money fixing them?

And why worry so much about candy?

George Babbitt: Dentists are paid too much.


Depends. I don't begrudge the charges from the oral surgeon who removed my other three wisdom teeth, even though I only got reimbursed for about half of it. It was worth the ~$600  to make the stabbing headaches stop from the impacted teeth.

n the other hand, I swear to god if the new regular dentist keeps pushing rinses and prescription toothpastes on me, I'm out the door to my old guy, accepting the insurance or not.

We trick or treat our dentists' office. They hand out toothbrushes. Who can't use a new toothbrush?

Fun size is usually okay, it's the mini ones that are a joke.

It was more the fact that this dentist is offering to buy all the candy that comes in his door, the assurance of financial affluence is what I hear in that bold statement.

Jokes in more ways that one.
