Because counting hadn’t been invented when they named the months back in prehistoric days.

8. Why do kids trick-or-treat on Halloween?

Because if they dressed up in outlandish costumes, wore masks to hide their identity, knocked on random people’s doors, and demanded candy on any other night, they’d be apprehended by ICE and thrown into cages at a juvenile detention center.

9. According to at least one Internet source, October 30th is National Candy Corn Day. Why?

The National Association of Candy Corn Manufacturers paid off that internet source to proclaim October 30th as National Candy Corn Day.

10. What happens to all the candy corn that doesn’t get eaten?

It all gets returned to the National Association of Candy Corn Manufacturers, where they grind up the uneaten candy corn and donate it to ICE in order to feed kids who were apprehended trick or treating on a night other than Halloween and who were shipped off to and caged in juvenile detention centers. Yeah, I know. That’s wrong on so many levels.
