Halloween 2:

I remember when Halloween was the scariest night of the year. Now, it's Election night.

I want to be something really scary for Halloween this year so I'm dressing up as a phone battery at 2%.

This Halloween I'm going to hand out lemons while wearing a t-shirt that has 'Life" written on it...

Witch Parking Only!
All others will be TOAD.

You say witch like it's a bad thing...

Laugh and the world laughs with you.
Cackle maniacally and people back away from you slowly.
