I bet it’s hard being a pumpkin around this time of year. As soon as there’s a nip in the air, they must know some truly frightful things are going to happen.
The torture devices come out: spoons, knives, forks.
Big and little kids alike come at them with fiendish glee in their eyes, performing some truly messy vivisections.
But it’s not only of kids they must live in fear; adults are out for their guts, too, especially the ones known as… THE BAKERS.
As soon as the scent of nutmeg and cinnamon hits the air, they must know their doom is certain.
But I bet it beats being some other things today, though.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
