BOO !!!

So listen up all you Hobgoblins out there - I'm usually late with seasonal stuff, but because of a recent suggestion fron Elizabeth L-T - hopefully I'm about 6 weeks early with this one!

"Trick or Treat, Money or Eat!" that's what we local Bawlmoron kiddies used to chant - AND - when there was no treat (grouchy neighbors) sometimes the Trick was nasty - a Blibbet!

WHAT? You never heard of a Blibbet? It is 10 pounds of __it in a 5 pound bag!
Seriously, tho - on the really grumpy grouchy nasty ones - we would literally put a reasonably fresh Horse-Turd inside a lil brown paper bag, set it on the top step, light the bag with a matchstick, knock on the door - and RUN LIKE HELL !!!

Needless to say, the unwary door-tender would be unpleastantly surprised when they STOMPED the flames out with their foot!!!

Sorry, Lord - Who Knew?


When The Frost Is On The Pumpkin

 

When the frost is on the pumpkin,
and the goblins are in the air,

we'll be goin' "Trick or Treatin'",
at least those of us who dare!

When the frost is on the pumpkin,
and the moon is sinkin' low,

we'll bravely walk the streets again,
but it might be just a little ... slow!

 

 

When the frost is on the pumpkin,
and the ghosts are rattlin’ their chains,

we'll be loadin’ up on "goodies" then,
an’ countin’ out our gains!

 

When the frost is on the pumpkin,
and Freddie Krueger slithers by,

we'll smile, 'cause we're not a-frightened,
well not enough to cry!

 

 

When the frost is on the pumpkin,
and Count Dracula drinks his blood,

we'll be walkin' then runnin' like "munchkins",

oh Heavens, don't fall in the mud!

 

When the frost is on the pumpkin,
and the wolves are howlin’and growlin’

we'll be havin' such fun, that we'd never run,
unless ... Frankenstein is prowlin’!

 

When the frost is on the pumpkin,
and Jason's mask is seen with a frown,

we'll try our luck, with a hockey-puck,
and score him straight out of town!

 

When the frost is on the pumpkin,
an' we're casually sampling our eats,

if someone jumps out of the bushes,
we'll just rely on our ... "feets"!

 

 

When the frost is on the pumpkin,
and a dark haze passes over the moon,

we'll be headin' home, wishin'...

it was the merry month of June!

 

When the frost is on the pumpkin,

an’ a chill is in the air,

us lil’ hobblin’ goblins will gorge

on our scrumptious fare!

 

 

When the frost is on the pumpkin,

we’ll beg to take our leave,

we just gotta go "Trick or Treatin’"

‘cause it’s All Hallows’ Eve!
