There's a Surprise in the Bag!

I love my commenters!! They are so funny and helpful! Today I wanted to recognize the evil genius behind, "That's Funny Because", Eve Cleveland. She came up with a great Halloween party idea for me. Her game was a hit! Here is her suggestion...
Here is one that is time tested and mama approved-plus, it don't cost nothin'. It's called "There's a suprise in the bag!" All that's required is an old brown bag with somethin in it that is sure to git a start out of them buggers. Give a lil pitch then say, "Who wants to stick their hand in the bag first?!" Sound real peppy. Mouse traps work great!
We so enjoyed, "There's a Surprise in the Bag"!! Who knew you could have so much fun with mouse traps?


As expected, there were a few bleeding-heart, whiny parents who had a problem with it. Tips of your fingers grow back. Don't they? Oh wait! That's starfish! Ooops. Anyway both of those kids have nine more fingers. What's the big deal?

It's okay. I just gave them Eve's lawyer's number. Eve, you've had worse, right?


I guess I'll stop showing off about how great my Halloween party was. It's probably getting boring for all of you. You're actually probably fighting off those pesky feelings of jealousy right now. I won't rub it in your face anymore. Except for this:




Stumble It!

Pshaw. Possession of all of one's digits is so over rated. One less finger to pick their noses with I say.

Jamie said...

Eve is a clever southern girl! Those moms all need to relax..less sticky fingers to clean..duh!

Scobberlotcher said...

That is so funny!

Chat Blanc said...

oh I LOVE the evil genius that is YOU and EVE! Kudos ladies. :D

Now the kids won't rip them off doing other stupid stunts. Really, you did THEM a favor.

You have such a kind spirit and are always thinking of others. I don't know what's wrong with people that they can't see that!

Kirsten said...

@honeybell-I couldn't have said it better myself!

@jamie-She is nice and evil, isn't she?! :)

@scobber-Thanks!!

@Chat Blanc-Thanks to you too!!

@kitty-I know! I am a giver!!

Random Chick said...

I wanna come to your Halloween party!!! Wheeee!!!!

VE said...

I like to put all the kids in a big bag and then have everyone pick from the bag. They get to keep them for one year...with an option to buy...

Don said...

That would be right up Eve's alley...for sure. What did you end up putting in the bag? Peeled grapes substituting for eyeballs works.

Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy said...

HAHA. It is priceless.

Heinous said...

I am so sorry I missed the party. That sounds like it was so much fun.

Those glass eyes are expensive. You should have bought a superball and drawn a dot on it.

Heinous said...

and also, there's an award for you at my place.

HappyHourSue said...

Uptight parents - what the hell! At least you had a game - I would've been all: "Go play in the road- I'm blogging."

eve cleveland said...

K,
So glad they fell for it! Ain't it a blast to see the look on their faces...what's funny is they will all do it again next year.
Hearts and kittens

Sounds like a party that the lady from Hansel and Gretel would have thrown.....preheat oven to 350.....

Deb said...

KIRsten - That Eve is too much - mouse traps! You could have carried on the same theme with a bowl of D-Con and then pass them off as PopRocks.

KIRsten - I will never spell your name wrong again (slap forehead).

Heidi said...

OK, first time coming to your blog, but I like your style!

Ann said...

Kirsten!
I'm so glad you came by my corner of the blogosphere today.
I'm happy to be in your world!

muskrat said...

nice.

too bad the tide won't get to play USC this season.

Vodka Mom said...

Do you think I could get away with that in kindergarten?

Jenn Thorson said...

The glass eye, I thought, was an extra-nice touch. :)

Next year?... D-Con laced cake? :)

Kirsten said...

@random chick-You don't need an invite! Just show up!

@ve-Even I haven't thought of that one. Maybe next year!

@don-we did that too!

@petra-Thanks!

@heinous-A superball!! I never thought about that! They must be cheaper than $500. You really are a Halloween party genius!

@happyhoursue-I know! Some people are such asses!

@eve-You're right! they all complain now, but they'll be back next year!

@reforming geek-You have given me a great idea for next year! Thanks!

@deb-D-Con!! Why didn't I ask you guys for ideas sooner?! Next year is gonna be a doosey!

@heidi-
thanks!

@ann-Thanks for stopping by!

@muskrat-I'm sure you would be cheering for 'Sc! ; )

@vodka mom-I don't know about kindergarten, but first grade, for sure!

@jenn-Thanks! D-con is a great idea. You and Deb-Great minds!

The Stiletto Mom said...

Looks like it was fun!!! And...I love the custom receipt site...I will wait a respectable amount of time before stealing that idea from you! :)

cIII said...

Next year, put a Live mouse in the bag with the Trap. It'll have to be a Big Paper Bag. Like the kind I bring home from the Liquor, I mean, Grocery Store.

A very "Deer Hunter" sort of Party Game.

QuirkyLoon said...

As long as the kids had fun, that's the bottom line.

I bet they were laughing so hard they were crying, eh?

What a mom! Makes me wish my kid had been invited to the party.

Dr Zibbs said...

Hahahaa. Good one.

AngieSS said...

Hahaha. Wow, do you know how to entertain kids or what?!!

Maybe you and Eve could write a book showing other variations to fun party games. I wonder how you would play "Pin the tail on the donkey" at one of your parties? :D

Bill said...

Oh my gawd. If you and Eve ever get together, we're in for one hell of shindig!

MammaDawg said...

LOL - omg - I was just catching up. Sounds like a blast was had! Wish I had heard about this for our lil' shindig last Saturday - lol!

Granny Annie said...

I could never put even a brand new, just-out-of-the-bag mouse trap on my tongue even for fun. Icky chills up my spine.

Kat said...

hey my favorite hussy lol, loved the post
