Halloween Candy Chutes

Post by oneh2obabe »

Kids can enjoy trick or treat while maintaining social distancing. The guy has orders for 400 candy chutes with a minimum $25 donation to the Food Bank.

A Toronto plumber is helping to make Halloween a bit safer by rigging up an alternative for handing out candy to local trick-or-treaters in his neighbourhood.

Geoff Burke is working to install something called "Candy Chutes" — an inventive way to get candy to kids while practising physical distancing.

"It brings a little bit of joy, and it's relatively safe," Burke said.

Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Good idea, especially for a plumber who probably has hundreds of short pipes perfect for the project.
If I was expecting any children and had the time I would try to rig up sometime based on the Mousetrap board game.

We haven't had many kids in our area, ever. I think we'll just turn the lights off and forgo the candy shopping . . .

The first year in our house we had over 250 kids. We are down to less than 75 last year and I suspect just a few local kids this year.

I'm a Halloween grinch. My family looks after the little buggers. I just sit on my plump butt and watch B movies. This year is Basket Case (remastered).

Ideology...gives evil-doing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination...[it] is the social theory which helps to make his actions seem good instead of bad in his own and others' eyes...
