Trick or Treat Discrimination?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Trick or Treat Discrimination?

I just realized that I have been giving more candies to skinny kids and less to those chubby ones.

Is it a discrimination?

I'm so bad ...

I'm convinced that malted milk balls were invented by cardiologists...have you seen the saturated fat in one of those mini packs...get the kids hooked and in 20 years you've got a heart attack patient in your office.

You could be worse, I forgot about buying candy but luckily found a bag of Easter candy in the back of my pantry, that's what I'm giving out.

Don't worry. Candy is like Doomsday food -- lasts forever.

Oooopps, thats bad too, isnt it?

So one candy for skinny kids and no candy for chubby kids?

Wow, I wonder what they're going to say when they hear "You are too chubby, no candy for you"

Perhaps, I should show them some tricks, after all, it is a trick OR treat.

How about a wheelie on my road bike? Would that be considered a trick?

I live on Long Island and during my ride today, I saw that some neighborhoods had their streets lined with SUVs because parents where keeping an eye on their kids by driving alongside them.

on top of that, after riding past all those 15 year old girls in sl-ut outfits, I thought I should hand out rubbers instead.
