QUAINT Halloween tradition or cruel and creepy treatment of a giant orange vegetable? You decide.

ONCE again, we have no one to blame thank but SWEETNEY.COM for bringing this disturbingly funny and/or funnily disturbing video to our attention.

IN hopes of preventing some of you from having terrible nightmares after watching this pulpy fictionesque account of gourd gore, allow us to steer you towards this very cute and FIENDISH HALLOWEEN GAME* — which is mildly challenging, somewhat fun, and, best of all, involves zero pumpkin mutilation.

Poor, poor little Pumpkins…oh humanity or whatever the Pumpkin equivalent may be. Enjoyed the game as well although it proved a bit difficult with my early Monday morning reflexes.

Bobo: yeah… i’m thinking we won’t be carving up any helpless pumpkins this year. oh wait, we haven’t done that for awhile now, have we? ๐Ÿ™‚

and that game is cute and actually harder than it looks and/or should be. especially on a Monday! xoxo

Comment by snuppy

All I got to say is… better the pumpkin than a cute, hapless bunny.

Speaking of which, maybe we will do a pumpkin this year. Of course with the 85 degree temps, it won’t last long.

And to think we just bought two huge pumpkins! Perhaps we won’t carve them up into Blue and Elmo this year!

Happy Monday everyone!

You know we will be all over the Fiendish Halloween Games tonight, don’t ya? Thanks for that NBFF.

Comment by Lampshade Lady

GDB: agreed! ๐Ÿ™‚

CJ: perhaps some paint, instead? either that, or wear earplugs while you’re carving so you won’t hear the pumpkin screams. xo

Dame Lampshade (i saw that yesterday & laughed & laughed!)… i wasn’t sure if you’d seen the “update” on the Making Fiends website… so glad you hadn’t! (it’s really cute, very Vendetta v. Charlotte, Tali will love it!) xox

My MIL got huge pumpkins for Thea yesterday…. I will have nightmares from carving them up.

CJ: heh! yeah… after watching that video, i believe you! xo

oh, and i’d like to go on record by saying i totally suck at the stupid Making Fiends Halloween Game. did i say it was mildly challenging? that, my friends fiends, was a lie from the pits of hell. the best i could do was 28 hits–which i only managed to do once, and i’ve gotten worse with each try. yeesh. i hate video games. what the heck was i thinking?

Comment by snuppy

Well I’m sick in bed with a terrible head cold. Tali and I tried – I got 8 first crack and Tali got 20. Vendetta would almost be proud.

We loved the pumpkin patch too!

Comment by That Dame Lampshade Lady

That Dame Lampshady Lady: a cold? yowie, that sucks! (even more than i do at the Halloween Game) i’m so sorry you’re feeling crummy, NBFF–hopefully you’ll be better, tomorrow. (try Sambucol Elderberry extract and Zicam…trust me, these’ll fix you right up.) xox

Comment by Snuppy Clown/Doctor

Wow! So cool! How do you find such wonders?? She must have lots of time on her hands. Such fun! D :}

Comment by FelineFrisky

Hey I got 21 and gave her enough pumpkins to make muffins. What are teh odds?

What a truly well balanced post, first you shock us and two seconds later you make us throw pumpkins in the direction of a little girl. Momentary sadness was balanced my malicious throwing practice.
I feel whole again ๐Ÿ™‚

We dontรฆ have a Pumpkin tradition here, nor do we have pumpkins ๐Ÿ™‚

FF: Sweetney is the queen of links. she’s one of the original and most brilliant of bloggers, and has been at it a long time (funny, because she’s young). her writing is also spectacular. i’m glad you enjoyed the video. the game i found on my own (just checked back on a favorite site for updates and lucked out!) xox

Penguin: GIRLFRIEND!! soooo happy to see you! and i’m so glad you got to see this post before we moved on (yes yes… i got today’s post up late, sigh. sorry about that!) NO pumpkins? actually, when i think about it for a second (i just did) i guess that makes sense. they take up a lot of space, which is not necessarily in abundance where you live! ๐Ÿ™‚

hope you like the links we have for today!! xoxox

Comment by One Hot Puppy

Oh those poor pumpkins! *sob!*

Comment by Little Blue Pill

LBP: i’m sorry you had to see that. xox
