The night of bad jokes

My sister tells me that telling jokes to earn one's treat for Halloween is a Des Moines thing. People in the DC area don't do it. Really?

Poll #2026710 What do they say on Halloween?

Do children/people tell a joke for a treat on Halloween, in the area you currently live in?

Always. Make them work for it (but not very hard).

20(51.3%)
No, they just expect a treat without saying anything.
2(5.1%)
No. No one here goes trick-or-treating.

I don't know - no one comes to my door.
