Local trunk-or-treating event as disappointing as expected
A Knoxville church's Saturday trunk-or-treating event was just as much lack of fun as neighborhood children anticipated. The alternative to traditional trick-or-treating took place Saturday from 1-3 p.m. to protect children from Knoxville's notorious serial killer population. "I like dressing up, roaming around in the dark with my friends and gorging myself on a satisfying mixture of chewy, sour and chocolaty candy until I throw up on the sidewalk," said 8-year-old Emma Crear. "Instead I went car to car with my mom. In the middle of the day. In a parking lot. They should have given out toothbrushes and raisins and been done with it." Connor Selbach, 10, agreed. "I had to fish SweeTarts out of the back of some guy's 1987 Toyota Celica," said the miniature Batman. "Yeah, that's a lot safer than going door to door."
