    Halloween candy advisory

    I heard the strangest thing on the radio this afternoon. It was an advisory about Halloween candy put out by the local express clinic chain. They were telling folks to be safe, make sure your kids know not to get into strangers cars, etc. But then they mentioned something that caught my attention. They said not to trust the candy handed out to trick-or-treaters... That you should bring it in to their clinic and have it x-rayed before consuming... They will provide this service free of charge to help protect the children.

    What a sorry world we live in nowadays! Has anyone else heard of something like this?

    I have not heard it this year, but growing up heard horror stories from my mom (she was an ER RN when I was growing up) about razors in apples and needles found in candy bars. It is very important to inspect all the candy before you let your kids dig in.

    Most of the people I know only take their kids to houses of people they know, which tends to cut down the anxiety about such things.

    Yes it a sad commentary on our society.
    It is an evil society that blames the tool for the actions of its user.

    Well the " HolyDay" aka Holiday is of questionable origin. They do say " Trick Or Treat". so just who in the HE double Hockey Sticks do you think is behind it?

    Must be "Trick or Crack" season. Do you think it's OK to eat the candy after the healthy dose of radiation....

    You do realize that every single major holiday we celebrate has pagan origins and is full of pagan icons right?

    When the Catholic Church took over Europe, the only way to get pagans to convert was to let them keep celebrating the holidays they already had. Christmas is Yule, Easter is Eastra, Halloween is All Hallows Eve, Valentine's is a celebration of Cupid. The Christmas tree, garland, etc. Are pagan Yule icons. The Easter egg is a pagan fertility symbol, etc. Etc. Etc.

    My accommodation of your incompetence does not make you right.

    The local ER I worked out of as a paramedic did the same thing. The only problem
    was a lot of kids complained the bags were 1/2 a pound light than when they came
    in. The X-ray techs said they took out the bad ones. This went on for a few years
    until an ER doc caught the techs putting the good bars on top of needles and pins
    on top of the x-ray plate. Worst of all, the X-ray bums didn't share!

    Absolutely right, but this one is straight from the children and animal sacrificing of occultic depths of Hell without the Catholic filter.

    As far as the x-raying of candy, that service has been offered for decades, now. There are some really sick puppies out there.

    I've been hearing that for at least 10 years. I just make sure the kids candy is well packaged and let 'em eat the sugar.
