Trick or Treat Tomorrow Night in Clinton

 In Clinton, Halloween means Halloween. Translation: trick-or-treat will be held tomorrow night instead of  on a night that isn't Halloween as so many other cities in this area saw fit to do. The city stated on its website:

 Trick or Treating will be held on October 31. The City of Clinton is not responsible for rescheduling holiday observances. It is the discretion of a neighborhood and/or organization whether they will offer Trick or Treating on another day.

Good job, Mayor Fisher and Clinton.

In other words, don’t ask me to get involved with kids candy endeavors. We got bigger issues in government.

And yet trick or treaters are out tonight in Clinton.

Devils work on the sabbath

Since when is tricking and treating considered WORK?

Oh, my preacher, the ladies in the church kitchen, the church custodial staff, the organ repairman and the parking attendants ALL work on The Sabbath (please capitalize it). Also the restaurant where you eat on Sunday before you head to the carwash all have employees working. Is the devil in your britches then?

I'm still looking for your Bible verse, by the way. And don't bother extrapolating that it means 'not keeping it holy' means what you said. The devil works every day. All legitimate work is Holy.

Gene: What's Hawkins decided about Trick or Treat this year?
Handlers: I think sources said she's switching from last year, probably.
Gene: Whatever that means, we will go with the opposite.

Mary: Any word from the new and greater Ridgeland City Hall?
Handlers: No puff of smoke as of Friday morning. It's still on.
Mary: Keep on it. If a signal comes out of the tent, go the other way.

Gene: Does it really make any difference?
Handlers: Yes, but only at the level of confusion.
Gene: Good...that's the objective.

Mary: Is Gene holding for me on line twelve?
Handlers: No, that's Mayor Truly. Wants your rib recipe.
Mary: Who?

Parents and Children: To heck with all of 'em. We're doing it Friday, Saturday and Sunday!

To give credit where it is due, they are basically correct. No governmental body could do more than suggest a change, short of making trick-or-treating illegal on Sunday (and only in its jurisdiction). Confusion aside and even assuming such nonsense, enforcing such overreaching would be "problematic."

10PM. Sunday isn’t the Sabbath…That would be Saturday.

And the devil does real evil when kids knocking on doors for a fun sized piece of candy. Their parents end up eating most of it, thereby raising obesity and the chance of major health problems as a result of constant eating of processed overly salted and sugared food.

Y’all got trolled again boys and girls……

Seems like Ridgeland and Clinton are sticking to the calander and some kids will get two nights of candy.

Mr. Kingfish; I remain amazed at the BS levels of comments your posts always seem to generate. Mine included... JaxJam remains one of my favorite sites to study and use as an opportunity to learn more about the quirks and foibles of humanity.

The psychology and Sociology departments at Belhaven should offer a class that studies one or more of the comments sections that contain the responses to your posts

11:29 - Back up and tell us why Sociology is capitalized but psychology is not. Please tell me you don't write the incoming freshman handbook at Belhaven.

I am so sorry I never intended to capitalize either. Waste of money degrees for the promising millennial student child.

KF has successfully dumbed down the mental level of this blog to between third and sixth grade reading level. Anything above that level is a serious challenge to the mental acumen of the average reader here.

Christmas Eve is on Friday this year.

Will there be a public debate between the mayors of Madison and Ridgeland to decide which night Santa will be allowed to dip down out of the clouds? Can we at least get Kim Wade to host and moderate? Can we have a camera-operator other than JJ's Kingfish? Will there be wine and cheese? Can JPD provide security for the event?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
