Halloween Idea

I grew up in a college town, and one Halloween our doorbell rang and we opened the door expecting to see trickortreater but what was in front of our open door was another door! Like, a full-on wooden door, that had a sign that said "Please knock." So we did, and the door swung open to reveal a bunch of college dudes dressed as really old grandmothers, curlers in their hair, etc, who proceeded to coo over our costumes and tell us we were "such cute trick or treaters!" One even pinched my cheek. Then THEY gave US candy, closed their door, picked it up and walked to the next house.


  1. This is brilliant. Even better than my current favorite (till now) that I saw in New York one Halloween. It was near the end of the evening and as I walked down the street, I saw a huge pile of trash, and a guy with a big street-sweeper broom. When I got close, the pile of trash jumped up and ran down the street with the street sweeper running after him.

  2. I HATE adults or teenagers who come tricker treating wearing NO costume, not even a clown nose... nothing! SO... instead of candy I give them a packet of taco sauce, soy sauce, ketchup, etc. I pull it from a bowl beside the candy bowl, and stick my hand in their bag before I drop it so they don't see it and come back and egg my house. The sound of the packet hitting the rest of the candy fools them and off they go... no treat.

    ps. If you are wearing a costume and smoking... same thing! Yes, we get a couple every year.
