I love Halloween and always get into the giddiest mood. Of course, you know what happens when I get giddy...I say stupid shit. Here are some of the things I have uttered so far:

"I'm not going to walk over there and give you candy! We're in a recesion; you gotta work harder fo' this shit."

"WTF is a Mr. Goodbar and who decided he was so effin' great?"

"Next year I'm bringing out a lawn chair and a cooler when I sit out here. Hopefully none of the kids will ask for a beer."

"Do you think the butterscotch feels inferior to all the candy bars?"

"Can you be arrested for motorboating a bag of snickers in public?"

Ah. Happy Halloween, folks. ♥
