Here's my pumpkin story (like the monster trout that got away)

I had a med-large carved pumpkin, and had it setting on top my TV (for a few weeks). It looked fine. When I tried to pick it up to dispose of, I found only the skin was left, and all the fleshy internals had dripped down the back of the TV (heat from the always warm tv, even when turned off: most electronics have some parts always on).

Anyway, a good metaphor for the US economy now. All skin, no innards: rotted away and consumed by the wall street blood sucking vampire squid on the face.

With advances in steroids, fertilizers, genetic engineering, etc., I predict that by 2020 there will be a pumpkin the size of a house, which after carving will have a family of four living in it.
