Want More Halloween Candy? Here's How

"Video: How To Get the Most Halloween Candy"
Serious Eats (October 26, 2009)

"Halloween is serious business for kids. They want candy. Lots of candy. And with a few sleazy and not-so-sleazy tactics, they can get enough candy to last until next Halloween. Some simple tips include wearing a great costume and being an enthusiastic trick-or-treater; mildly more complicated is emptying your pail into a larger sack, changing costumes, and going back for seconds to the houses giving out the best candy."

The Howcast video is two minutes, two seconds long, a quite professional production with (very simple) cartoonish animation. Pretty good advice. And, in the case of Step 3, somewhat unscrupulous.

Plus, there's an explanation of the origins of collecting treats on All Hallows' Eve.
A tip of the hat to williamcooks, on Twitter, for the heads-up on this post.

I'm reminded of a newspaper comic that I saw while waiting in a doctor's waiting room.

Grandma to little boy: "What do you want to be for Halloween?"

Little boy: "God."

Grandma: "God? Why would you want to be that?"

Little Boy: "Because I like Him. ... And maybe I'll inspire some people to give me ten percent of their candy."
