Many Pumpkins Enter, Some Pumpkins Leave: Halloween Thunderdome Winners!

Four score and seven years ago, we told you that if you carved a pumpkin we might give you a prize for it. We may even have used the word “thunderdome.” And lo, some of you miscreants actually did it! And sent us pictures! Not all of you, because the rest of you are dead on the inside/hate fun. No I’m sorry that’s not true, you are just busy or have lives or do not want to buy a food product just to stab it until a recognizable pattern appears. I didn’t even carve a pumpkin, but that’s because I live in a little box alone with no porch or stoop to put it on and I would have just had to keep it inside and it would have started rotting and I don’t know, that seems sad. But some of you went all out on pumpkin carving, and I am glad you did! Check out your hard work!

And what of winners and prizes? Well! We would hereby like to recognize:

1. Bea and Holly’s Wonder Woman Pumpkin!

2. The “Mo Pumpkin,” whose carver did not identify themselves in their message!

3. Wasteunit’s multimedia masterpiece Ladies Welcome, which may or may not be the same as the boobs pumpkin, status is unclear.
