Trick or Treater upset by condom

So this 15-year-old, Jennifer (no relation), finds a condom in her halloween candy and freaks out. Calls her mom. Mom is so freaked out she calls the newspaper. Jennifer tells reporters she wonders what might have happened if a small child swallowed it.

Come on now.

Even though I still give out the traditional fun-sized chocolate bars, I can see the humour and wisdom in giving a 15-year-old a condom. I'm willing to bet that the evil-doer responsible for giving Jen the immoral device had a separate stash of "goodies" to give to older kids. A joke.

Even perhaps a community service. I may be a naive nerd, but I've spent enough time in high schools to know that teenagers have sex, but don't always want to ask their guidance counselors for protection. If all the trick-or-treating teens in the neighbourhood are getting condoms I'm sure some are being put to good use.

Okay, so more likely a joke. But then she did say trick or treat.

I should mention that I read about this in the Hamilton Spectator.

I remember some butt head gave me Dental Floss,when I was 10 - mint flavoured infact- no one made a big deal about that.

Why is a 15-year-old trick or treating anyway?

For candy. I trick or treated until I was 18.

I think when I noticed my hips were larger than the plastic pumpkin I was carrying, it was time to stop. :-D

I switched to pillowcases long before that happened

I agree with you. And, condoms are better than candy any day of the week.
