Homicidal Pumpkin Spotted in D.C.

My buddy, Lou Cantolupo, designed this ghastly pumpkin diorama (click to expand the image) well before The Simpsons aired this year's "Treehouse of Horror" episode, in which the Grand Pumpkin, in a blood-soaked ode to the old Peanuts' Halloween special, goes on a rampage. Lou got his inspiration, instead, from this site. My wife, Carrie, has some smart things to say about Lou's handiwork. As for me? I'm thinking the homicidal pumpkin represents the average American voter who's sick to death of the presidential campaign and would like to stick some strategist's head on a pike.

    Ain't that smart. And the photo here is WAY better!

    This is the kind of American ingenuity we need. Lou, can you fix the Wall Street crisis? or at least set up a similar display using the bodies of predatory lenders??
