Mover over Grinch, there’s a new asshole in town, and she’s not beating around the bush like you did by sneaking around in the night. No, this woman named only as “Cheryl” from North Dakota is about to ambush your child with a letter calling them fat and shaming you as a parent for letting them go trick or treating.
This woman really exists, and she really plans on doing this.
As reported by RawStory, a phone call into a radio talk show turned into an international sensation when “Cheryl” laid out her plan to ruin Halloween for any child she deems to be “moderately obese.”
A North Dakota woman reportedly will be the one handing out the tricks instead of treats like candy this Halloween when she gives letters to children if she deems them “moderately obese.”
Earlier this week, a woman named Cheryl called in to radio station WRIG and explained her plan.
“I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight… I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just ’cause all the other kids are doing it,” the woman said.
She also provided a copy of the letter to the station.
“You are probably wondering why your child has this note; have you ever heard the saying, ‘It takes a village to raise a child’?” the letter asks. “I am disappointed in ‘the village’ of Fargo Moorhead, West Fargo.”
“You [sic] child is, in my opinion, moderately obese and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some children this Halloween season,” the note continues. “My hope is that you will step up and parent and ration candy this Halloween and not allow your child to continue these unhealthy eating habits.”
If any parent gets ahold of this letter from the woman, and can figure out where she lives, please make sure you put my name on at least two cartons of eggs and nail her house with them for me. Front and back.
