Halloween prankster gives trick-or-treaters practically everything but candy

This is just weird.

Halloween pranks fun can be fun, but sometimes they just miss the mark.

Roy Purdy decided that instead of giving out candy or snacks to trick-or-treaters this year, he would give out pretty much anything else in his house. That included the controversial choices of celery and carrots, but he also handed out items like pickles, squash, mouthwash, and for some reason, a plunger.

If you’re hoping to see kids get riled up about not getting candy for Halloween, you’ll probably be disappointed. They’re far too polite for that—or maybe they found the prank funny themselves.

At least the kid who received peanut butter lucked out. That shit’s expensive.
