Giant pumpkins!

Woe to the pumpkin, that most lowly and misunderstood of creatures … believed by many to be a vegetable, the pumpkin is actually a member of the rodent family, rodentia. But it is often misunderstood because it is very, very sedentary. And I mean, these things almost never move around. They also look very much like vegetables, what with the way they grow out of the ground and all. Make no mistake, though: these things have feelings, and families, and emotions. And then look at these two – yowza!

    I don’t think so.
