One-Stop Treating

Halloween served up a hefty plate of WTFs - ass-bearing costumes, football beatdowns - but there was one that out WTFed the others and that was when we heard that H1N1 fears had canceled certain Halloween festivities. OK, we understand health concerns and the whole gotta-do-what-ya-gotta-do approach to public safety, but then we heard the alternative to a few shopping center and public building door-to-door trick or treating events - just give the kids a pre-packged bag of goodies. Yes, the children get the candy. And yes, the candy is delivered in a more expedient manner, but that's not trick or treating. That's sugar socialism. If you want the damn candy, the kids should be out there - dressed cute as hell, mind you - pounding the pavement, knocking on doors and working for their sweets. Jeez, WTF happened to a hard day's work?
