  • Nosy woman decides to intentionally deflate kids' fun on Halloween





    A Fargo, N.D., woman says she will give trick-or-treaters that she deems 'moderately obese' a letter instead of candy this Halloween.

    "I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight... I think it's just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just 'cause all the other kids are doing it," the woman said in a morning radio interview with Y-24. She wouldn't identify herself.

    The letter states: "You child is, in my opinion, moderately obese and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some children this Halloween season."


    Good grief, woman! If it bothers you so much, how about giving out sugar-free candy instead? Or, here's a wild and crazy idea: turn off your porch light and don't give out anything.



    Too bad she isn't identified. A fitting trick would be to deluge her with wet blankets. Sheesh.

    Wow, what an asshole. If she disagrees with fat kids eating candy, then she should either give every kid an apple (which will promptly be used as a missile at her windows) or simply not give any candy out at all. What a beyotch.

      I thought about that, but that seems to be taboo these days, unfortunately. Only stuff that's in its original packaging is pretty much the rule around here.

      Actually, around here, trick-or-treating is all but dead anyway. Trunk-or-treating has almost completely taken over. I have not had a trick-or-treater in over ten years, and I even have two children just that age who live in the other side of the duplex and they didn't even knock on my door last year.

        Change the headline to "woman self-pwns when she hands out letters with poor grammar from her high horse."

          Just give these!! They resemble candy bars and do not have the required mass to break a window.

            Why am I thinking that she has the ass of a Percheron mare?

              I'm trying to understand the charitable impulse behind this action but after thinking about it, there just isn't one. It's purely mean not only for the child but for the parents.

              Trick-or-treating is a social activity that involves food, not a food activity that involves socializing - that's a big difference. Kids will dress up and run around like maniacs for no reason at all so the candy isn't really the motivator for kids. Candy is a part of the experience, though. Denying candy to fat kids on Halloween is a lot like stepping onstage and yanking the poor singers, dancers, and actors out of a school performance. Aesthetically the performance would improve but that's not really what it's about.

              The woman can't seriously care about the fate of fat kids or she would simply turn out her lights (thin kids are potential fat kids so no candy for them). If she just doesn't think any kid needs candy she could hand out sugarless gum.

              I can only think that she hates kids and has a death wish. Any parent seeing their own kid getting a note instead of candy is going to read that note right then (could be a sex predator). I imagine a lot of thoughtful discussion will instantly happen on her porch.

                She's an activist. They get that way.
