What could be more fun on Halloween night than to tell funny, punny jokes to torment all those terrified strangers and neighbors who give out candy and treats to visiting witches, warlocks and werewolves. Ok, I can think of at least several things, but these are good, clean and harmless jokes any kid can feel comfortable telling to perfect strangers standing in doorways holding bowls of chocolate candies and bags of candy.
Announcing, “Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat,” only gets you so far. There’s always someone who will ask for a joke or funny story in return for their prized packages of milkduds or M&M’s.
In the olden, late medieval days, Trick-or-treating involved the practice of souling. This was when impoverished people would travel door to door on Hallowmas offering to pray for the dead on All Soul’s Day in return for food. Now, you could have your costumed zombies, werewolves, witches and other creatures of the night go around offering prayers for food, but the kids would probably have much better reception by telling a couple of bad jokes instead.
These groaners and moaners will provide your child with an arsenal of horrid tales to tell on Halloween night that are sure to make all ghosts and goblins howl with cackles, shrieks and woeful lamentations of the demonic minions of the underworld.
