Seems to me that pumpkins are stupid. Every other vegetable/fruit is either super delicious, super useful or totally poisonous. The pumpkin is none of these. Pumpkin pie is good, but if it was really good, we’d be eating pumpking pie all the time. They make the canned filling, pumpkin pie all the time is not out of reach, its just undesirable.

Pumpkins are nothing but a seasonal canvas for amateur carvings of halloween related icons.

  1. I like pumpkins at Halloween. They’re fun to make into jack-o-lanterns. As a programmer, I can why your lack of artistic prowess would frustrate you when the time comes to carve up a pumpkin, but that’s no reason to shit on the whole idea of pumpkins around Halloween.

    And as far as pumpkin pie goes, it one of those things that tastes good when autumn comes. When the weather gets shitty and the temperature goes down, certain tastes become more pleasing to the palette; certain foods become more comforting for the belly.

    Non-sequiturs Ben. Non-sequiturs and straw men. You rail against positions I haven’t taken.
