Halloween Night ~ Stay Away From My Candy, You Little BratOctober 31, 2007
By W.R. Jones
I first posted this painting on www.cafecrem.wordpress.com last week in reference to coffee cups. Here it is used as a symbol of Halloween. This is known as multiuse, or sometimes by the more common phrase of “too lazy to do another painting.”
I’m going to the rifle range to shoot tonight rather than staying at home passing out my good candy and shooting at those neighborhood kids.
I’ll stick my wife with the job of answering the doorbell 50 times. I really can’t bear to watch my good chocolate walking out the door in those grubby little hands.
I buy the candy at the store ostensibly for passing out on Halloween. It is obvious to the most casual observer, looking at my lowered head and shifting eyes, that I have no intention of sharing my stash. Luckily there is no lie detector test required. If they ask if the purpose of those 47 bags of candy was for passing out to a stadium full of crippled children. I would look at the floor and whisper “yes” whereupon the detector needles would wrap themselves around each other and snap like dry twigs under Paco’s hoofs.
