Halloween in St. Louis is somewhat unique
in that we require trick-or-treaters to tell us jokes in exchange for candy.
Yes, somewhere along the way St. Louisan's interpreted trick-or-treat as trick-FOR-treat, implying that costumed tykes should entertain us with a trick (or joke) before receiving a sweet. This, by the way, is in contrast to the more agreed-upon version of trick-or-treating in which kids will play a trick on you (ie. egg your house, smash your jack-o'-lantern) if you don't fork over some candy.
But I digress. The intent of this post is to share some of the best wisecracks we overheard this Halloween.
Here are three in order from slightly amusing to darn-right funny -- for an 8-year-old.
1. What does Tigger say after he goes to the bathroom?
2. What did the fish say when it ran into a wall?
3. What do you get when you cross an elephant with a rhinoceros?
And the most popular joke this year...How do you wake up Lady GaGa?
