Oh great, now pumpkin spice is suffocating our children. Sure, the fire department said the air freshener was "not hazardous," but it smells like a government coverup to me. Have you ever wondered why pumpkin spice is on everything now? On every conceivable thing with flimsy justification?

The popularity of pumpkin spice was sudden and drastic. Starbucks made a drink, and then suddenly pumpkin spice infiltrated every crevice of society.

And this Halloween, go through your child's haul and make sure nobody's slipped any pumpkin spice flavored candy. In fact, remove everything that isn't Necco wafers, just to be safe. One can never be too careful, the pumpkilluminati is all around us.
