October 26, 2006: Burger pumpkin



This irresistable burger pumpkin was first noticed at Bits and Pieces and is now so popular, it's making the rounds. B&P calls it a "Big Mac (TM) pumpkin", but fails to include the (TM), and actually it's not a B.M. at all since it has only one patty and no onions, special sauce, or middle roll. It is nevertheless the best of all comical pumpkins noticed this year.

So now, the next time I call Mrs Elspode "pumpkin buns", I can show her an example. Cool.



glatt  Thursday Oct 26 12:45 PM

That's a good one. I like it.

This is pretty old now, but it's still my favorite pumkin carving.

suicidal pumpkin

There's no out-cry about the waste of food here. How all those pumpkins would be better used to feed the hungry, the homeless. One wonders: are certain foods (like giant, novelty hamburgers) NOT ok to make because they are a "waste of food" but less obvious foods perfectly ok to render inedible?

I know roasted pumpkin seeds are nutritious, but look! The other part of the pumpkin is wasted! Hang your heads in shame, pumpkin-carvers.



Aliantha  Friday Oct 27 08:16 AM

I thought you lot made (desert) pumpkin pies out of the innards of the pumpkins you used for halloween?



Trilby  Friday Oct 27 08:20 AM

Ah, sorry Ali. I deleted the post! Um...well, I guess you could make pie out of the cut up, roasted, mashed shell. the gooey insides aren't really good for anything 'cept grossing out your little brother or sister.

I thought exactly what you thought--you could use the rind even though it had been carved up. To be honest, though, I've never met anyone who ate their jack-O'lantern. I've never known anyone to collect post-Halloween pumpkins and make them into mash for the hungry, either. But, I suppose it could be done.


Aliantha  Friday Oct 27 08:48 AM

well at the least you could make a big pot of pumpkin soup right?



Trilby  Friday Oct 27 08:56 AM

Yes! Now, why doesn't the church collect post-holiday pumpkins (for free!) and make soup for the poor? Must remember to ask my born-again classmates why this doesn't happen...



Aliantha  Friday Oct 27 09:00 AM

excellent! I'll be interested to see the results.



Pie  Friday Oct 27 09:05 AM

Mostly because they've been opened up and sitting around in non-sterile, non-temperature controlled environments. Food poisoning for the poor...



Aliantha  Friday Oct 27 09:07 AM

eating is for the starving?

You boil or broil them, Pie. Potatoes don't exactly sit around in a sterile, temperature controlled environment, either. Ya wash 'em and bake 'em.

Oh...I see your problem. You don't want us to make pumpkin Pie!

No, those are separate pumpkins. The carved ones sit on your front porch until they rot, or until the local hoodlums come by and smash them into little bits.

Except for the people who spray Lysol inside their carved pumpkins to keep them from rotting as fast. Can't cook that out. Plus, a can of pumpkin is like what, 50 cents? I've had made-from-scratch pumpkin pie, and it absolutely wasn't worth the time or effort.

Some things are like that. Pumpkin pie is one. I think brownies are another. Brownies from a box of mix where you add oil, water and an egg, are usually better than brownies from scratch.

You got that right. I made a couple of pumpkin pies from scratch years ago. It's interesting and fun to do once. Never did it again.

Actually roasted pumpkin seeds are divine. Seperate the seeds out from the more gooey bits, wash them and then roast them in the oven on a jelly roll pan at around 350F. Salt to taste if you wish.


Elspode  Friday Oct 27 02:00 PM

OMG...was that Goatse Pumpkin?!



wolf  Friday Oct 27 02:02 PM

Thank goodness, no, but I'm sure someone has done it.

EDIT: Someone has

As usual with any image hinting at having anything to do with goatse, click at your own risk.

Actually, I may repost to WTF NSFW to save this image for cellar posterity (posteriority).
