Ok, forgot those -other- ways of carving pumpkins, I know what you want, you want extreme pumpkin carving

At what point did the carving of pumpkins turn into a “cute” event? When did boys stop carving pumpkins and moms start? Where did we lose touch with one of the years coolest events?

Today we will seize back this ritual. Today is the day we throw away those safe, cute carving tools. Today. We will buy a big, ugly, pumpkin so large one man cannot lift or move it. Today. We will carve that sumbitch into something ugly and plop it on the front porch. October 31st we will light it brightly enough to give visiting children suntans.

Pumpkin carving is reborn.

    Last year when I was about to throw my pumpkins away, I turned a pressure washer on them. Set it to the narrowest stream, and it’s like cutting butter; you can essentially write with it. I’ll break it out again in the next few weeks, and post the results.
