Mommies, would you be pissed if I ate an ear in front of your kids?

My good friend puts on a pretty elaborate haunted house on her property every year with trick-or-treating. She gives out awesome candy bags too. She totally goes all out.

Well this year as part of the haunted house I have a mad scientist set up with a table full of glowing beakers, a strobe light, black lights, and glowing body parts. I also have a jar full of random jelly candy body parts that my friend suggests that I take a bite out of a body part every time a kid goes through.

She never allows young children to go through the haunted house, she has a person up front screening kids and passing out candy to the little ones. Would you be pissed if I ate an ear?

  • Yeah.. I think that's kind of pushing it..I vote the scary stuff should wait till the kids are all the way in. Just in case. You wouldn't want some mom coming after you the next day because her kid was up with nightmares all night. Just play it a little save. You never know.

  • Heck no, I think it would be GREAT!!! I mean, you said no young children are let through, so why not do it? Older kids appreciate that stuff...especially the ones that are drug out by Moms to go with their little siblings. Give them some fun that nigh too!!

  • Haha, hell no! If someone would be insulted or whatever, then they shouldn't be going through a haunted house in the first place!

  • Nope. Sounds cool! Espcially if it's obviously not a *real* ear.

  • Just post a note that this will happen in the haunted house, that way they have fair warning, and it covers you. Otherwise, they enter at their own risk. Have fun, sounds great, but oh...the calories. LOL.

  • No if they are okay with going through a haunted houses then they can take you eating a fake ear. Now if you had a chainsaw going, i would run and!
