Pumpkin "Porn" - with apologies to the Mods
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:







And, of course

and
Your turn now!

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.
