Day of the Pumpkin – Shapeshifting 13 #24

“Ah hate pumpkins!” spat Jeb. “Ah stomp ’em dead any time ah see ’em.”

“Whatever for?” said his sister, Billie-Joe.

“Don’ know why. Ah jus’ wanna kill ’em all!”

Billie-Joe looked out the back window at thousands of angry pumpkins creeping into the back yard. “Jeb. I’m thinkin’ the feelin’ is mutual.”

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    Hm, now that you mention it, those pumpkins do look a little angry. (Stepping back slowly, and increasing the distance between myself and Jeb.)

  3. LOL! Reminds me, apropos matters vegetable – and a weird fact: here in NZ we don’t usually eat pumpkins of the Halloween lantern variety – what we call ‘pumpkin’ and serve up on the dinner table is, technically, squash. Used as pig food in Europe…

      Hehe. Well a pumpkin is a squash isn’t it? My wife, who grew up in the Phils, had never tried pumpkin pie. Now she’s seriously addicted to it. And it may be insulting that what you kiwis are eating is pig food in Europe, Consider this: What we Americans eat, Europeans wouldn’t even feed to their pigs. 😦 By the way, want to make a body disappear? Feed it to the pigs. They eat everything, even the bones. :O

    Funny! Killing all, is a good thought at this point, but unless he has a machine gun or grenade he better make himself disappear!
