The pumpkin story, part 2

(For part 1, see here.)

Once upon a time, after the 'happily ever after' part, things weren't so great in the pumpkin patch. The man pumpkin and the woman pumpkin weren't getting along. They weren't connecting. They weren't happy.

The man pumpkin went on a "business trip" to Las Vegas. While there, he met a showgourd:

Unfortunately, what happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas.

The woman pumpkin found out about the other gourd and kicked the man pumpkin's lyin' cheatin' vine out of the patch. She retained a good lawyer and got custody of the gourds:

The man pumpkin rolled quickly back to Vegas to rekindle his romance with the showgourd.

Unfortunately, the showgourd was the gourdfriend of Anthony "Tiny" Pumpkinoli, the boss of the local mob:

Here are some of Tiny Pumpkinoli's associates:

Bruce the Shark


And his brother Carmine

These were not nice pumpkins.

Tiny was quite upset about his gourdfriend and ordered a hit on the dumb ass man pumpkin:

And that was the end of that.

The end.

Sensational story and coverage!! :)

Especially from one as fatigued as your own self. Excellent job!

Great use of the shoe. Probably my favorite Halloween post, ever. Did you really carve all of those?

Marijean: I pulled the photos of the carved and smashed ones off the internet.
