      That is the best use of a pumpkin ever, and that's coming from a pumpkin pie lover.

      That's very cool! Better than the original IMO.
      When I first saw the thread title, I thought you meant more like this.

      Good job on the pumpkin and all, but I think the pumpkin smart rivals Rob.'s CRX for most frequently posted object.
