Knock, Knock....

I love Halloween...the decorations, the costumes, and (especially) the candy.  I particularly enjoy answering the door for the trick or treaters.  Our area's Halloween tradition is to make kids “do a trick” to get their treat. The vast majority of the time the trick means a joke, usually a punny one-liner. The best I heard tonight:
  • What’s an optimistic vampire’s favorite drink (B positive)
  • What kind of shoes does a chicken wear? (Ree-bawk-bawk-bawk-bawk)
  • What’s the difference between Halloween egg nog and regular egg nog? (Halloween egg nog has more boos)
  • What do you get when you mix Frosty the Snowman with a vampire? (Frostbite)
  • What do witches put on their hair? (Scarespray)
  • What’s a mummy’s favorite music? (Wrap)
  • What is a ghost’s favorite dessert? (Booberry pie)
Five years ago today: Whistle A Happy Tune


  1. Love that you guys do that. Happy Halloween and boogie boogie 🎃

  2. Sounds like it was a great Halloween for you! Now on to Thanksgiving.

    1. The decorations I put out this year can segue straight into Thanksgiving :-)

    1. Thank you. You're welcome to use any of them.

  4. I've never heard of kids having to do a trick to get a treat, but sure would be more fun, more creative than just handing out candy to kids with pails full of candy. I love it in fact. And the jokes.
