Halloween Public Service News

One time, a while ago, I took Lil ~J and some neighborhood girls out trick or treating. I bullied a neighbor into going into his own child's stash because they were handing out mini yogurts. MINI YOGURTS. I told him "I can either teach these girls how to egg your house, or you can teach these girls that you are a good neighbor."
The Ten Most Disappointing Treats for Trick or Treaters

"Dentists and orthodontists should not be allowed to celebrate Halloween if they're going to get all tooth doctory on us. Do not bring your work home with you, folks! We all have a personal responsibility to brush, and maybe some of us will forget, but your complimentary bristles on a stick (instead of a Snickers) will not help us remember. It will make us despise you and your trade."

My friend (who is not a dentist nor does she play one on tv) used to make homemade donuts. Do you know how much work that is? I don't care about all the razor blade horror stories. Homemade donuts? Yeah, I'm all over that!

Hells-Yeah. I would travel miles for homemade donuts. Not popcorn balls, though. Those are gross.

Dentists should love Halloween. These kind of holidays keep the money coming to their pockets. Who wants to go to a dentist who doesn't know how to fix a cavity because ALL their patients NEVER eat candy.

better to hand out pencils. or just turn out your porch light.
