Experts warn psychopaths may try to give your kids candy corn on Halloween

From The Babylon Bee.

U.S.—As many people in the nation prepare to celebrate Halloween, experts are cautioning the nation that some psychopaths may be handing out candy corn along with actual candy this year.

A report issued by government officials stated that many disturbed individuals may try to slip candy corn into your children’s candy bags.

“It appears many mentally ill people are planning on putting small bags of candy corn in with the actual candy,” said a CDC official. “Remember to check your kids’ bags before they accidentally chew on the wax-flavored globs of disgustingness.”

Warning signs that your kids may have inadvertently ingested candy corn include a look of revulsion on their faces, sudden vomiting, and yelling, “Hey, why does this candy taste like I’m chewing on a crayon?”

“Know the warning signs and educate your kids,” the CDC official added. “If they see a stranger handing out candy corn, remind them to run away and alert a law enforcement official.”

At publishing time, CDC officials had also warned parents to look out for flavorless Circus Peanuts.

  2. I knew it! I knew my grandmother was a psychopath!!!

    My cousin, an actual licensed therapist, told me awhile back that he believes our granny had hystrionic personality disorder. But I told him No Way, she was a full blown psychopath. And this proves it!

    Several eons ago, when I was three years old and dinosaurs roamed the earth, my granny found my typical three year old nature to be a bit nerve-wracking. She told me one day that if I could be very quiet and very still for one whole hour, she would reward me with candy at the end of the hour.

    With visions of chocolate drops dancing in my head, I was perfectly quiet and absolutely still for what seemed like forever. Then my granny rewarded me for being so uncharacteristically perfect — with “wax-flavored globs of disgustingness” — the hideous Candy Corn!

    I knew better than to ever fall for my diabolical granny’s false promises after that.

    Yesterday my husband and I had our two year old great grandson with us in church. Clearly the child has ADHD of the worst kind. I need to buy some Candy Corn, the next time I’m in town…

  7. I didn’t realize anyone was licensed to pass out candy that wasn’t hermetically sealed with a government stamp of approval. Where is the Department of Homeland Security when you need them? 😦 — Suzanne
