Ah yes, the four of us were dressed as a mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, and I think the sullen kid was supposed to be somebody's libido or something. I wonder what ever happened to him.

No mention of me taking a deuce in the bowl, so either they left it out of the story or that was a different house.

I've had an idea for awhile of doing a Halloween house where I build a long, dark tunnel in my garage, lined with black walls (garbage bags) and a strobelight in it. At the end of the tunnel is a chair with a bowl of candy, and a sign that says "take one". There is also creepy music playing.

So the kids have to wander down the dark creepy tunnel having their senses blasted by the strobe, and their reward is to take a candy. Throughout this, I am spying on them from behind the wall, dressed in a creepy costume. If they try to take more than one candy, I reach out with a boney hand and grab their shoulder and moan "taaaake ooooonnnnneee!" scaring the crap out of them.

It'll be a fun night if I ever get off my duff and implement it.

In my neighborhood, that was the height of the tainted candy scare. Which, being young, I thought was stupid. Why would anyone go to the trouble of inserting a razor blade into some kids' treat, and how hard would it be to see that your treat had something extra in it?

But they went ahead and set up a candy scanning station, and my folks insisted I take my loot downtown and get it x-rayed. I'll be dipped if they didn't find a dog-gone razor stick into an Apple in my bag! (I was more honked off that some jerk gave me an Apple, than that he had put a razor in it but that's neither here nor there.

Fortunately, it was an electric razor, and it wasn't even switched on, so no one was hurt...

From the actual article: "We tested and discovered that most of your children were complete dicks."

I fail to see why this is evil.

She was in back observing for science?  What a weird lady.  I just thought she was masturbating.
