Some Poor Schmuck Accidentally Handed Out His 8-Ball to Trick-or-Treaters
This past Halloween, apprentice panel-beater Donald Junior Green had just dropped £200 on a big bag of white, which he had stuffed into a pants pocket. In his other pocket, he had stashed some delicious sweets for the neighborhood children who were busy trick-or-treating. Unfortunately, when a trio of kids (guided by their off-duty cop father) arrived at his door, Green fished into the wrong pocket and handed them blow rather than blow-pops. When the kids got home, their dad spotted the stash, called his contemporaries and Green is now facing 130 hours of community service and 12 month's probation. Which is actually a pretty lenient sentence when you think about it. The lesson from all this—give out tubes of toothpaste for Halloween lest you mistake them for dime bags.
