When I looked at the pumpkin, my first thought was "I'm going to need a bigger trebuchet"

And a lot of ballast

"Cracked Pumpkin" WWBAGNFARB !

On the bright side, Peter, Peter can eat well this winter.

Perhaps he'll take another crack at it next year. Although if somebody were to make a Jack-O-Lantern of their plumber most of the hard work would already be done for them.

Not the Great Pumpkin? Maybe his pumpkin patch isn't the most sincere.

Is orange curry involved?

Pumpkin crack is an imported seasonal offering in Miami.

Meanwhile, in Ohio...

Size matters in the U.K. too...

World's largest pumpkin in Italy

1226 kg = 2,703 pounds

I thought the longest leak was achieved after drinking a couple of 6-packs.

Competitor disqualified;
tests positive for crack

Just for the record, I don't think my crack has prevented me from setting any records.

"...and a 3.5 from the Illinois judge."
