Sherlock Holmes, the story of a crack head detective and his homosexual lover, Watson!

WTF!!!

This sounds like the argument skit on Monty Python.

Not me

10 bags of candy was not enough last year

You either get out early or come home late because all the streets are blocked

Mommas with infants push thru for treats

They egg my cars (and I given them good candy!)

Of course, terrible things happened on October 30.

1920 - The Communist Party of Australia founded in Sydney.
1938 - Orson Welles broadcasts his radio play of H. G. Wells's The War of the Worlds, causing a nationwide panic.
1944 - Anne Frank is deported from Auschwitz to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
1961 - Nuclear testing: The Soviet Union detonates the hydrogen bomb Tsar Bomba over Novaya Zemlya; at 58 megatons of yield, it is still the largest nuclear device ever detonated. Nikita Kruschev announces that the scientists had planned to make it 100 megatons, but had reduced the yield so as to avoid breaking all the windows in Moscow.
1997 - British au pair Louise Woodward is found guilty of the baby-shaking death of 8-month-old Matthew Eappen.

I just love this. I'm looking forward to seeing the Sweedish Bikinni Teem this Hollowween. Excellent Post.

I like that the Mexicans came here because of the Irish Tater Famine, but I'm wondering about the Jalapeno blight of the early 19th century and how in affect Irish immigration.

Did you know that Fley sent his first indecent IM on October 31? True Fact! I'm series.

Wow. it's fun not proofreading ...

Well, I've got to agree that Halloween is a "holiday" with decidedly unholy origins, I'm guessing this "reverend" is either being sarcastic or has serious problems of the mental variety.

I mean, what does Mexican immigration have to do with the Irish potato famine? I assume he means Irish, and I have read elsewhere (from a more lucid author) that the large migration was responsible for the intorduction of this celebration to America, but I wouldn't exactly hold that against those immigrants who've contributed good things to this country.

Regarding the illegal status, I have no clue if that's the case (although it seems possible). If true, at least the children of illegal immigrants back then were committed to becoming Americans, not retaining their identity with their old country.

Apart from stating a bit about halloween, his piece is drivel.

Oh, and IBTZ

It originated in an evil country called Ireland. In the nineteenth century, the Irish Potato famine drove millions of Mexicans to come to this country.

At least you are more historically accurate than that other troll, kellynla.... which is not saying much.........

:-P

Er...

Ireland Ping......

I can help with that. In the message box, when you hit "reply" to a message, highlight the url of the picture you want to insert and type: ???? drop the URL between the quotation marks. There you go.

Theres a 'broken picture" image where the question marks are. What was supposed to be there? All I get is the URL but not the image. I have been trying to learn how to do this for a long time. :-(

Difference is the Irish spoke English...

They didn't sneak in by the back door.

They became cops,criminals and politicians instead of criminals, politicians and cops.
