Fox News’ Brit Hume got a kick out of it too and retweeted the zinger.

Nothing like a good giggle-scream on Halloween:

No worries! Bloomy has back-up:



    Wonder if he will have limits on how much candy each child can have in there bag.

    • rssllue

      Of course he will. Here is a pic of the standard “bowl” that each child is allowed to take with them when trick-or-treating. I think it is slightly bigger than last years version.

    • HWGood

      Surely the bag size is to be limited.

    • Moto

      If they show up with “too much candy”,instead of giving them anything he’ll take some of their candy and give it to minorities.Latinos will be classified as “minorities” if they are liberals, and “white supremacist 1%ers” if they are not.

    Brussels sprouts, I like. Kale? Extremely indifferent. Bloomberg? Severely detest.

    Oh, you sillies! He’s going to give the kids the seeds, from the pumpkins he carved for his jack-o’-lanterns– recycling, don’tcha know!

    He’s at it again – NYC just raised the age to buy cigarettes from 18 to 21. Yeah, yeah, yeah…smoking is bad, but that’s not the point. We let 18 yr old fight in wars and vote, but they can’t buy cigarettes or booze? Mayor Nanny said the newly raised age limit will keep the next generation from picking up the bad habit. Right, not one single person in NYC under the age of 21 is EVER going to smoke because of this new age limit.

    • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

      Yeah, I got a text from my youngest about this today … He’s lived in Texas, in the same house all his life. NY has been an bit of a traumatic experience for him, he’s at Fort Drum. His first exposure was the $3.29 tax on a 12 pack of a lemon-lime soda.

      However, given the amount of underage drinking that goes one, in the 18 to 21 crowd, like this is really going to do anything other than potentially provide a big tax deficit for them.

    • Chris

      Yeah same reason none of drank or smoked, chewed any of that. It was only because the LAW said no. Anyway, also if anyone is interested, I have some ocean front property for sale….

      Why aren’t the Vietnam-era hippies all over this???

      Because taking freedom is fine as long as you aren’t a straight, rich, white, old, able-bodied republican of Anglo-Saxon descent.

    His candy distribution will also come with a 1099 form for the parents to file with their taxes enabling the IRS to adjust their healthcare premiums to reflect the child’s future obesity issues under the unaffordable care act.

  • Secret El Tor

    They’ll egg his house if it isn’t locally-grown.

    Using only free-range eggs, one would assume.

    • bungopony

      How about hard-boiled ostrich eggs?

      • Secret El Tor

        I’d be fine with them using concrete eggs.

    HA HA!!
