Bart gives a report on the history of Halloween to his class.


Bart gives the report to his class. Halloween started in the Stone Age when a guy named Og saw some dinosaurs playing "Bobbing for Cavemen". Og thought it looked like fun and wanted to play next. In Rome 100BC, barbarians came up with tricks. In China 1275, Halloween was brought as a gift to the Chinese by Marco Polo. In Spain 1483, the Spanish Inquisition gave the first person to get sick from eating too much Halloween candy. In Salem 1640, Halloween got off to a rocky start in America as they burned witches. In the Caribbean 1789, people dressed as pirates were hanged. World War II changed Halloween and it became Victory Day. In San Francisco 1967, the sixties were a simpler time. In Miami 1984, people dressed as drug runners for Halloween got arrested. And in the future, the world will be filled with alcoholic robots and pizza delivery guys.

After giving the report, Bart gets shouted at by Mrs. Krabappel and says that it can't all be true.
