    I’ve decided to be Bernie Sanders for Halloween.

    I’m not buying candy.

    I’m just going to take the candy from one child and give it another.

    Thumbs up for your costume choice. I’ve decided to be a democrat base-voter. I don’t even leave the house for the candy. I expect it to be delivered to me…because having candy is a human right.

    I’m going to be Ayn Rand for Halloween and demand that everyone stop giving away candy so that we don’t create a culture of dependency. I will give out copies of Atlas Shrugged instead of candy.

    I’m going as a GOPer and give candy only to the top 1%. I’ll shoot anybody else that comes on my property.

    Wow sounds stressful. I’m going to give out candy to little kids that come to my door and turn lights out at 8:30.

    Cartoon was cute.

  6. You all are great. I think this is the only blog in the world where the readers could turn a cartoon into a running political discussion. Very creative. I can’t come up with anything. I just can’t wrap my head around this 2016 election.

    Thank you all for being here. You have made my day.

    As Joe Biden, I will tell my neighbors that I can get them lots of candy. When Wicked Witch HRC cackles that she already has all the candy, I will run back to my house, lock the door and refuse to come outside.

    Those all made me laugh, thank you.

    I don’t celebrate Halloween because it’s a pagan holiday.

    I’m going as the General Assembly, I will take the candy away from the NOVA children in my neighborhood and use it to pay for road improvements in ROVA and Richmond.

    Hahaha! Great reading this Thursday morning.
    Me, I’m dressing in head to toe, especially head,
    burka to keep from eating any candy.

    I’m going as Barack Obama, and will tell the kids that if they like their candy they can keep their candy. We’ll see how that works out for those who believe it.

    All Hallows’ Eve is a Christian holiday. Started under the Roman Catholic church.

    I will go as Ben Carsen, and quietly, but forcefully, explain to those who come to my house why they don’t want any candy and have already had too much candy. I look forward to seeing their smiling faces as they leave my property for the bus that brought them in to my neighborhood.

    @cargosquid Not to some of the present day evangelical Christians I know, one of which is in my family.

    On another note, there are a lot of great comics here! Who knew under all these opinionated people there were stand up comics fighting to get out………

    1. Absolutely! I have been impressed.

      I want the best blog award because I have the most creative people (who are also generally civilized which is more than I can say for most blogs)

    Halloween does have Celtic roots which means lot of pagen influence. That supports a variety of perspectives.

    The burka is a great idea to prevent KitKats from leaping into my mouth as they sometimes do this time of year.

    Aren’t we forgetting the Druids had a hand in that holiday? Samhain was well-established long before the Romans got to Western Europe. The Church was smart. It blended customs and holidays. The old ways with the new.

    The Church only did it so as to indoctrinate children into accepting the notion that responsible Catholics are expected to take their hard earned candy (read cash) and deposit it in the less fortunate (Catholic or Heathen) children’s Halloween Bags (read collection plate). Thus later in life, those same Catholic or converted Heathen children don’t think twice about dropping their tithe into the collection plate.

    1. Ah…how I understand. Tithe every jolly rancher!!!

    Ah but the Pope’s Reese’s Cup never runneth over

    I am going to dress up an John Boehner and go have a good cry for myself.

    I’m going to put on my Grandpa Munster costume and say whatever it takes to get the most candy – and then if I become King of Candy, I’ll put the big, bad Uncle Sam on a diet. No candy for you, Uncle!

    If you want candy, you’ll have to go looking for it in my emails.
