It Takes A Busybody.

Via KARE in North Dakota comes this tale of a woman who has decided that not only is she the arbitrator of what is “obese,” but also what makes a good parent.

The woman has decided to hand out the following letter instead of candy to some Trick or Treaters:

Halloween Nutcase Letter

The text of the letter reads:

Happy Halloween and Happy Holidays Neighbor!

You are probably wondering why your child has this note; have you ever heard the saying “It takes a village to raise a child”? I am disappointed in “the village” of Fargo Moorhead, West Fargo.

Your child, in my opinion, is moderately obese and hould not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some children this Halloween season.

My hope is that you will step up as a parent and ration candy this Halloween and not allow your child to continue these unhealthy eating habits.

Thank you.


Are you kidding us?

Apparently not:

I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight… I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just ’cause all the other kids are doing it,” the woman said in a morning radio interview with Y-24. She wouldn’t identify herself.

At least the “village” of Fargo Moorhead doesn’t have to wonder where it’s “idiot” lives.

While the woman wants us to remember one saying we also remember the saying “Trick OR Treat.”

Here’s hoping the “village” and the kids of that village show her the “trick” part.

Not that we would ever advocate the infamous flaming bag of dog poo, t.p.’ing the woman’s home and yard, etc., but we wouldn’t stop someone from doing it either.

Where do these people come from?
