    Default Call to all pumpkin gougers.

    Alright, my pretties. It's October. Trees are changing color, spiders are coming out of the woodwork, and Hocus Pocus is going to be on television another ninety-three times in the next two weeks. So take a break from putting razors in apples for a minute, and read about the pumpkin carving contest.

    From now until October 30th, I will be accepting PMs of photographs of carved pumpkins. I will reupload the photos to a non-username revealing photo account, and post them on the 30th with a poll. The winner will get a prize of some kind. I don't know what it's going to be yet. There's a good chance it will be disappointing. If you're only in it for the prize, I hope you lose. This is really about bragging rights, anyway.

    So. It's a contest, so I guess we need some rules. There are only going to be two. They're just pumpkins, for chrissake. You shouldn't take them too seriously.

    Rule one: Be awesome. If you want to carve a radish or a carrot or a clump of dirt instead, I don't fucking care. Just make it awesome.

    Rule two: Don't steal pictures from the internet and say they are yours. To make sure I know you're really the one who took the picture, put a salt or pepper shaker in the picture with your pumpkin. I know. It's weird. But it's something you all have at home, and something that isn't likely to be in all the pumpkin pics floating around on the net.

    I realize that it's going to be a while before people start carving. That's fine. I'm just throwing it out there. I'll bump this periodically as a reminder.

    Alright. Contest in 3, 2, 1. Ready, go. Good luck.

    I think this is all a little insensitive, given the fact that a pumpkin killed Jennie's family.

    Good thing it is virtually impossible to photoshop salt and pepper shakers.

    If aliases submit their own pumpkins, they can vote. Otherwise, it'll be ignored. It's going to be a public poll. Anything suspect won't be counted. If in doubt, I will refer to my trusted advisors.

    That it is. I think you would win any pumpkin carving contest in the world if you were able to pull that off.

    Instead of pumpkins or radishes or carrots, is it okay if we carve people?

    Sorry, Z. If you get a chance, do something sooner. If not, take a picture and show us anyway when you're done.

    Y'all should post your pumpkin seed recipes, too.
