1. Pumpkins don’t have as many “guts” as one might think…
2. They do, however, hang on to what they have rather tenaciously.
3. I may have the skill to carve a pumpkin that looks exactly like Heath Ledger’s Joker, but I SO do not have the time.
4. Its perfectly normal to anthropomorphize your pumpkin after carving it.
Its even OK to do so before.
But talking to your pumpkin WHILE cutting it up and scooping out its brains? If you don’t find that incredibly disturbing, those around you will. Especially if you also happen to choose this time to rehearse your evil laugh. (Its about standards.)
Happy Night Before Halloween!
