Magic Shake-Ball


Is it okay to steal my kids' Halloween candy and then lie about where I got it when they see the wrappers in the trash?


"Teeth hadst thou in thy head when thou wast born,
To signify thou cam'st to bite the world."
(3 Henry VI 5.6.53-54)

Yeah, I'm definitely in the doghouse for this one. This is Henry VI reminding Richard Gloucester (aka Richard III, the evil, hunch-backed child-killer) that he's been a menace since day one when he came into the world with a full set of teeth. In other words, Richard's a freak of nature who was born to bite the world, and everyone knows it. I can run but I can't hide from my monstrous gluttony. Someone's always going to find the wrappers and call me on it. Man, I'm going to miss those little Crunch bars.
