Halloween legends from Snopes.com --I'm not welcomed!

I tried visiting the web site,
http://www.snopes.com/holidays/halloween/hall...

There are so many pop-up things there that I just left. I don't know why web sites spend millions in promotion to get people to visit their web site, yet beat the visitors away as soon as they try to view any page on the web site.

I just had the same thing happen. Not with Snopes, but with another website I was trying to visit. I wanted to make a purchase and couldn't get in. Wow, they really want your business!!

I forgot to say, about Snopes, just go to the top of this page and click on it there. It gives you a list of Halloween stuff. I didn't go into any of them. They looked too scary to me.

Gentlemen please buy a scope, you can hit the target much better.
Bang,bang, Obama, lol.
btw, I'm not white, "MEXICAN AND PROUD", pendejo.
Well, if you're Mexican, you could always go back when Obama takes office. If you were American, you could vote on Tuesday.

If Obama takes office, you might as well stay with his plan to legalize illegal immigrants. However, I don't think they meant they weren't American, I think that was the best description word they could provide to say "I'm not white." Perhaps my interpretation is wron too~

I know, but unless you hold duel citizenship, if you're a citizen of the United States, you're not a Mexican.

I wuz hoping that Obama would legalize marijuana. But I guess if he legalizes illegal immigrants instead I'll just start smoking those.

But how do you grind them up?

And what kind of THC level do they have?

I wanted to read about the Halloween legends, but the unblockable popup ads bounced me away. I'm not going back. It's their loss. Let the web site go out of business.

The race for the White House is almost over if there was a god I certainly would thank him.

Soon the wink of Sara Palin and her parroting redundant “Joe Six Pack” and “Hockey Mom” phrases will be a thing of the past. She will be donating her $150,000 Saks 5th Avenue wardrobe to her favorite “Consignment Shop” in Alaska so she can buy it all back at a quarter per item. She must hurry because the glass igloo of the Governors mansion in Juneau is melting as she gives polar bear hugs to Sen. Ted Stevens while the largest newspaper in Alaska embraces Obama. It may be a struggle staving off her unethical impeachment because of the “FIRST DUDE” but I suspect she will succeed. It was a long “Bridge to Nowhere” this trip down the yellow brick road to mainland USA but now she will be able to go back home to eat her favorite Alaskan cuisine – reindeer pizza, white fish ice cream, fermented fish heads and jellied moose noses. Anyone that can eat that shit certainly must be a “PIG with LIPSTICK”-- REZA I am speaking about YOU!

McCain will take a long awaited vacation, the man looks exhausted, to one of those 7 houses that he has no idea that he owns {it is a dementia thing} and they will lock him in one of those 10 bedrooms for his own protection so he can start writing a memoir titled “Why the American Press Hated John McCain”. He then will be treated for PTSD and return to congress to finish his last term before leaving early because of age and health related issues.”MY FRIENDS” will be everywhere for comfort and solace in this trying time as he reflects on another plane that crashed in flames because of his poor judgment, ill advised flip flops and way to much negative spin that sent him in a long downward spiral of defeat. The “Swift Boat” attacks that sunk his 2000 campaign by GWB did not work for him and he will always be confused in his delusional, incognizant state of mind as to why the American people FINALLY became tired of this type of negativity in politics. At least he will have all the illegal drugs his wife can supply to get him through this difficult moment in his life.

Joe Wurzelbacher, aka “Joe the Plumber” the toilet man and relative of Robert Wurzelbacher of “Keating Five” fame appeared at a campaign rally with Sara Palin this week answering questions from the audience regarding how scared he was that Obama will attack Israel if elected. He has now signed a contract to record country western songs in a duet with William Hung of American Idol fame. Mr Wurzelbacher additionally has found a publicist to find him a book deal and help him run for Congress in the state of Ohio. The rumor has it since Sara Palin has announced her intentions of running for president against Obama in 2012, even before the 2008 losing tally becomes official, she intends to have “Joe the Plumber” as her V.P. running mate with John McCain as her political strategist.

Happy Republican Hollow Weenie

“Palin” could dress up like a MOOSE with a target sewed into the butt so the press can get a better aim.

“Joe the Plumber” will have a plunger attached to his bald head to help him suck even more then wrapped head to toe in duck tape to permanently shut him up.

“McCain” could be dressed as the Penguin once again in his Danny Devito costume but I like this idea of a grounded TATTOO of Fantasy Island fame pointing to the sky yelling “LE PLANE LE PLANE” as Obama swoops in for victory.

“Barrack Obama” will be doing the Al Jolson thing only this time in “WHITE FACE” to remind everyone before the vote that he is multi-cultural and not just black. Sadly that is an important consideration in this election for some.

“Joe Biden” will be a ghost with a hockey puck firmly wedged in his mouth so he does not say anything in these last days to screw up the poll numbers.

“Mrs McCain” will be sharing a beer with “Joe Six Pack” as she is counting up how much money this election has cost her family beer fortune. The two of them will be passed out drunk when they see the numbers and will wake up on SUNDAY!!!

“Mr Palin” the FIRST DUDE will dress up like a condom and as he travels the campaign trail with all the children, to indicate the couples great parenting skills, will be teaching safe sex while handing out candy on the airplane for Saturdays stop in Tightwad, Missouri..

“Mrs. Obama” along with Mrs. Biden will be with there children and families, at home in their respective states, being a great mothers and “Enjoying a Wonderful Halloween Night” as there husbands continue on with this arduous quest for the White House

A smile to all – just a little more BUSHIT.

Actual fact: 31% of all Americans believe in (and are scared of) witches.
Found on a statistics TV show which pulls stats from a number of reports.
Does anyone else find this fact scary?
Yes, and the whole site has more to say.
