Funniest Halloween Story

My good friend Kevin Clark tells the story of his first year of handing out candy in his Fort Worth neighborhood on Halloween. As the night wore down, a few stragglers were still knocking on doors. Kevin had run out of candy by the time his doorbell rang once more so he looked around for something to to give in lieu of candy. By his front door was a "change dish" with a variety of loose coins that had accumulated over time. Kevin grabs a handful of coins, opens the door, drops the coins in the kid's basket and tells him Happy Halloween. To Kevin's horror the kid turned, ran to the edge of the front porch, and screamed for all potential trick or treaters to hear: "He's giving away mooooooooooney!!!!!"
