"Hey Bloggy peoples, Ma has been all preoccupied latley and we have a question. We tried to get Ma to explain and she said she COULDN't! Maybe you can answer this for us....."
"We went for a walk down the road and there's this skeleton dude aiming a cannon at us! What is up with THAT?"
"So then we kept going and there was this tree with a dead body hanging in it only it's not a real dead body, it's made out of straw so we kinda thought maybe it was another hay net thingie, but Ma wouldn't let us eat any of it. What is up with that? If you hang up bags full of food, why shouldn't we eat it?"
"Ma just muttered something about stupid human tricks and we kept walking and there was ANOTHER tree and this one had little white plastic bags hung all over it. We checked those out too and they couldn't be eaten either."
"So, you think you all could explain this too us? We especially want to know why that guy wants to shoot us. What'd we ever do to him?"
"psssst, Mom, you think we might at least be able to eat some of the pumpkins sitting by the mail box?"
"Those gotta be edible Kid. See? The flag is up on the mailbox thingie and everything. I'm sure that means we can eat 'em.
