The Great Pumpkin Contest

This evening, Chez Pink Shoe, 3 Lawyers and 1 Pink Shoe gathered for a pumpkin carving contest.

4 pumpkins, a lot of knives, and beer.

How could things go wrong?

Fortunately, though odds were against us, there was no bloodshed.

Unless you count the pumpkins. Those suckers got cut to shit. You'd think we were in the mob.

Oh, and the Pumpkin Carving Contest? You, the Internet, you are the judges.

You have until FRIDAY, the 27th, to cast your vote in the comments here.

My fellow contestants insisted that the voting be blind, for they feared the bias of my readers. So, there's a side contest - do you know which pumpkin is mine?

Post your guesses and your votes in the comments:

Pumpkin A:

toothy
toothy 2


Pumpkin B:
pukey
pukey 2


Pumpkin C:
eyebrow
eyebrow 2


Pumpkin D:
cutie
cutie 2


As you can see, they're all winners.

I posted small sizes of the photos so that it wouldn't take 100 years to load, but if you click on the photos, it'll take you to the large size.

And remember - vote early, and vote often!

Denial Renae said...

Kiki said...

JH said...

Pumpkin C is the best. And it's yours.

perfectmoderation said...

Pumpkin D, and I think it is yours.

markus said...

Is that a pumpkin with braces? I vote for A.

GoodTimes said...

I like pumpkin D the best.

Pumpkin C is the most creative, but the nose kinda freaks me out...

Liz said...

I think pumpkin C belongs to the pink shoe... he looks a little french.

I'm voting for pumpkin D. (I like the teeth.)

Princess in Galoshes said...

I'm voting for pumpkin D. What can I say, I'm a sucker for buck teeth!

However, pumpkin C is definitely the most intricate, and is a close runner-up.

Tanique said...

I like pumpkin C. I'll take a stab and say its your creation.

M-M-M-Mishy said...

Poor pumpkin B! He hasn't received any votes yet. He's my favourite (and no, its not a pity vote) because I love his giant mouth. Plus, when's he lit up, he kinda has snowman features.

I think that pumpkin C is yours, Marcia.

bobealia said...

I vote that pumpkin C is yours. Although I like the vomit effect of pumpkin B, the evilness of pumpkin A, and the aesthetic of pumpkin C, I am voting for the toothy pumpkin D as the winner.

Frank said...

B

The drunken smile sells it.

Summer said...

c
b
d
a

That's how we hand out the prizes. I say the winner must buy all the non-winners a beer. (Not Keystone or PBR)

Vaguely Urban said...

I'm voting for C, for the flared nostril effect.

They are all so festive!

Long time reader, first time commenter.

Pumpkin D makes me want to touch myself.

katie-q said...

I like D the best, and I think its yours, I think you would have picked the interestingly shaped pumpkin - and I really like his teeth!

juliedooley said...

I also say that pumpkin C is yours--it looks curly and the nose is suspiciously M-like, which is for MMMMarcia, not MMMMMatt. All these pumpkins are super. BUT I'm also a sucker for buckteeth, so the dopey-looking D gets my vote. Sorry if I'm voting against you! ;)

C...hands down.

Leisa said...

D is the cutest pumpkin.

Virenda said...

Okay I VOTE FOR C & D.

C because it's kinda scary and curly, and D because it's hands downt he cutest and the shape is very cool.

I'm leaning towards D...So take that how you want it.

Pumpkin A is superb and the eyebrows make it look like Matt. I think this is HIS pumpkin, a sort of "Self Portrait of the Artist as a Young Pumpkin." Yours, Marcia, of course, must be C...

Lindsay said...

I'm going to have to say "B" because there is something endearing about it's goofy.... um.... it's just funny looking. and i like that.

D screams Marcia to me, while A says Matt.

Anonymous said...

I like D great shape and simplicity. And i think you would like the shape too.

Carlito said...

B is for the Bestest!

Anonymous said...

D...so cute!!

The Bill's Special said...

Gotta go with the traditional jack-o-lantern . . . A!

Kelly said...

I vote for A (Reminds me of "Jack" from "Return to Oz".... CREEPY movie, by the way...)

But I am SURE that yours is C.

v said...

Wow. They're all really, really good. It's very close but I have to vote for C.

I have no clue which one is yours Marse. So I'll just go with C again.

Kathy said...

Pumpkin C

D e s i g n Girl said...

Don't know who it is, but pumpkin D is my favorite :) (However, I think they all rock!)

your Lord in Heaven said...

Dearest Marcia,

I must say that Pumpkin A gets my vote for the scariest overall look. When lit from within, its mouth looks much like the gates of Hades. Whoever carved this must surely be in sync with el Diablo himself.

Yours Eternally,

God

SarahReznor said...

I CANT DECIDE! they're all cool!

The ony man amoung you who can drink a tree said...

I'll choose the pumpkin clearly carved by you loving husband, I choose B.

TSN said...

I vote for A.

And I have one vote for C (Ben).

And I have one vote for D (GA).

TSN said...

To clarify, that vote above was for our favorites.

Matt's is definitely A.

And we guess that C belongs to Marcia

e-liz said...

I'm going to have to go with A.

huniii said...

WOW! they look fantastic! I always thought that DIY ones would be a bit, um, you know, but they look awesome! God, why cant we have halloween out here? As a kid I was always jelous of that holiday, guess not much has changed...

doggerelblogger said...

PUMPKIN D!

Anonymous said...

D has my vote, but B is a close second.

Jsto said...

I'd like to vote for pumpkin A, but I think pumpkin C is yours.

jargonscout said...

Marvelous Marcia: A (maybe C too)
Favorite Pumpkin: B

betsyradish said...

Did you see the pumpkins I carved? They were truly sweet as well. (But we cheated and used templates for two of them)

Then I went BACK and carved two more. One of them was a Bob Marley pumpkin that I am particularly proud of. No template on that one :)

I love these pumpkins! They are so cute!
