  1. It’s a wonder somebody didn’t get their eye put out!

  2. Doesn`t anyone see a problem with this cruel and savage behavior?

  3. First it was just kids throwing pumpkins.

    Then adults got into the act and built catapults to throw the pumpkins.

    Then they built cannon to fire them.

    Now we’re dropping them from airplanes.

    Soon we’ll develop guided missiles with pumpkin warheads and destroy the evil pumpkins in their pumpkin patch lairs.

    Pumpkin Magnus delenda est.

  4. When will we find Saddam’s cache of pumpkins of mass destruction.

  5. Thanks Jesse, now I’ve got to go clean my lunch from out of my nose.

  6. This, my friends, is the essence of what it means to be a man.


  7. Fabius, I’ve developed a prototype of a system that can hurl a squash at a flying pumpkin. My first test was a “partial success.”

    Was that your car?

  8. Hey, Thanks for that! What a great story!

  9. Josephus,

    “Partial success” is a term used by DoD acquisition types that means “complete and utter failure”.

    Shiny armor didn’t help the Samnites and your squash based pumpkin interception system (SBPIS) will help neither the Pumpkin Magnus nor his deluded followers.

  10. Screw you, Fabius, I’m building the f*cker anyway!

    How many Americans do suppose realize that we have absolutely no defense against airbore pumpkins? Your problem is, you just don’t care about the security of the Latin people.

  11. Josephus,

    Your war mongering will cause an arms race, threatening all Italians. I have dispatched fetial priests to demand that you do the following …

    Destroy all squash in your possession.
    Surrender all squash producing materials.
    Forswear the future production of squash.

    Failure to agree to these demands means war.

    In case you choose war, all of our pumpkin based weapons are being equipped with decoys and other CSBPISM (counter-squash based pumpkin interception system measures).

    Pumpkin Magnus delenda est.

  12. When pumpkin bombs are outlawed, only outlaws will have pumpkin bombs.
