Following his success of changing the Encinitas Holiday Parade to Encinitas Christmas Parade Dan Dalager announced this morning that he is changing Halloween into Paul Ecke Appreciation Eve.
Also in the change, costumed children will be required to exclaim "Dick Cheney or Brian Bilbray" instead of the usual "trick or treat" when asking for candy.
"Halloween is a filthy pagan event," said Dalager in a press conference. "When I was kid on Halloween I wore my boyscout uniform and checked the other kids for reflective clothing and flashlights."
On a roll, Dalager announced plans to change Thanksgiving into Poinsettiagiving, New Year's Eve into Stay Home And Watch Television Like A Good Citizen Eve and Valentine's Day into 2 Blades Sharpened for the Price of 1 Day.
Anyone know where I can get these puppies tuned up?
