ABSURD: Parent’s Sign Asks ‘Responsible’ Neighbors To Only Hand Out Carrot Sticks, Raisins For Halloween!!

Oh boy. Thanks to those among us that have a peanut allergy, everyone else has to have a crappy Halloween. That’s what it means to be a sensitive, “responsible” American these days.

Here’s the sign asking parents to only hand out carrot sticks, raisins and other boring treats:

Wow. I feel bad for those kids that don’t have as great a time at Halloween but do we really need to cheapen every other kid’s experience? Can’t this parent teach their kid not to accept those treats, or even better, trade those with their friends for acceptable treats? I dunno, this just seems a little extreme to me.

But then most people accuse me of being a jerk, so there’s that. What do y’all think?

  • And what about diabetic kids?

    We all have limitations. ALL OF US.

    We can:

    1) Learn to deal with them;
    2) Learn to live with them;
    3) Learn to work around them;
    4) Demand the whole world change to accommodate each of our own individual limitations.

    Lady, I am sorry that you gave birth to a bubble-boy, and I understand your desire to make his life as unbounded as you can, but asking every other parent to stick their kids in bubbles for your child’s benefit is not acceptable.

    Maybe they could create a ‘Halloween Registry’ at some store, then shame all the neighbors into filling their list out for them.

    Ban fun!

    The candies listed may not be anyone’s favorites, but they are almost pure sugar. Hardly “boring” treats.

  • This is a serious problem on this country. Over 8% of all American kids now have food allergies, a quadrupling from 2003. We didn’t even know my own grandson was susceptible until a friend have him some candy and he was rushed to the hospital because he couldn’t breathe. IMO it is the parents responsibility to look out for their kids needs and while it is their right to ask, no other patent should feel coereced or guilty for not complying. The real issue here is WHY ARE KIDS SUDDENLY SO SICK? ( Hint: it’s our food supply stupid)

    Her kid still won’t be eating candy if it only gets carrots… (yes I read the sign and saw candy items on it!)

  • 20thCenturyVole

    I’m handing out candy. If your little hot-house flower can’t deal with that, keep it away from my door.

    How about “no” followed by “fuck off”? Does that work for you?
