Quick Question

With Autumn rapidly approaching, I find myself looking forward to the ghosts and goblins that will be running around come Halloween night.

I'm thinking about running a small contest here on The Verdant Dude for the Halloween season, but I'm not sure I have enough readers (::sniff::) to make it worthwhile. A good old-fashioned Jack-o'-Lantern carving contest.

Let me know in the comments if you are interested, and if I get a decent enough response I'll post the details sometime next week.

Slyde said...

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - never use the words "carve" and "penis" in a sentence ever again!

i am the diva said...

well, i will be carving a pumpkin at SOME point this year, so i might as well be in... (although last year i made a kick ass Death Star - i'm not sure i could top that)

savannah said...

Heff said...

Heff could go there, but I must WARN YOU.

I use "Pumpkin Master"(tm) tools and materials, although I usually create my OWN design templates.

Suzi Q said...

I think that's a great idea! I'm totally in!

sybil law said...

I am the pumpkin carver in this house, so - yes!

B.E. Earl said...

Well, that's enough for me. Look for the details next week sometime and now I have to figger out a prize of some sort. Besides my admiration, of course.

Slyde said...

i just want to play for hugs....

Bruce said...

While hardly and expert, I have been known to carve a mean Jack-o-Lantern. My Obama Pumpkin got rave reviews last year (not to mention scaring the pants off the neighborhood republicans.)

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - you always want to play for hugs...

Bruce - I'm all for a good scare!

Poppy said...

I'm interested. I could even TWEET THIS POST if you want.

whall said...

Yes, I'm interested in you holding a contest to find out who should be chosen to carve me a pumpkin.

I must say this is the best idea I've heard in weeks on how to celebrate Hall O'Wayne. I hardly even know you and you've outdone yourself to go to these lengths. I truly appreciate it.

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Oh YES!!! now I have no excuse for NOT carving a pumpkin!!!!!

Earlsie, I am so IN!!!! Although I fear HEFF AND DONNA...
Those fuckers win everything.

B.E. Earl said...

Poppy - Tweedle-deedle-doo!

Whall - You see right through me. This was clearly a post to draw out a comment from you. :)

Candy - It ain't over until it's over. Huh?

Avitable said...

Normally I'd be gung ho about that, but I'll be gone over Halloween and probably won't even decorate.
