I'm not a huge fan of halloween, really. Senseless gore has never had an appeal to me. However, even after having said that, I learned a long time ago that it is selfish to spoil other people's fun. This time of the year, I often see hilarious, creative pumpkin carvings that take my breath away and make me wonder how they did that! (my favorites are the ones where they use the stem for a nose and build a face around that.) So - with apologies to the mod squad, I'd like to start a thread for Pumpkin Porn, in honor of Halloween.

Let's limit this to the less gruesome and more funny or creative things you've seen online or elsewhere, and - as always - let's let good taste and sensibility rule the day. Thank you!

Here are my offerings:

Food Network did a Pumpkin Carving challenge and it should be on again tonight. I missed most of it.

I enjoyed all of the pictures. The guy from that site (Scott) does some amazing work. Also, the FAQ page he made is hilarious. :)

I love the burger pumpkin! Would ya'll believe I've never carved a pumkin? Sometimes I feel I'd like to, but I wouldn't even know where to start.

I love seeing all the pumpkins! Thanks for the post. I once did an elaborate carving of a cat face with whiskers. It was fun, but it took a lot of time. Lately, I have a huge lack of time, so we have been doing basic pumpkins. It's nice to see all these fancy and funny ones!

My husband never carved a pumpkin before I came along. He was raised Jehova Witness for the majority of his life (which he never liked, and does not practice) and they never celebrated anything. Only in the last couple years has his family been doing Christmas. His mom LOVES it and goes all out.

He himself doesn't care either way for Halloween, but he will pester and bug me all through October about Carving his pumpkin. He LOVES it. It's just so much fun. He won't dress up yet, however when we have kidlets and do trick or treating I told him he has to wear a costume if he wants to go out, and he happily agreed. haha.

jdee, next year you gotta try it. It's easy and if you get together with friends it's even more fun. Some silly way to spend an hour.

also, here is some home made pumpkin porn!
