For The Kids

Post by isfullofcrap » Sun Jan 16, 2011 4:25 pm

Back in college, we had pumpkin carving contests.

All of the pumpkins were sent to the children's ward of a nearby hospital.

Well, almost all.

Everybody else made your typical not-very-scary faces and outlines of flying witches.

I made a screaming face and stuck a saw through the top.

Then I mixed ketchup and quickdrying paint to add the effect of dripping blood.

"Don't you know this is for kids in the hospital?" they asked.

"Yes," I said. "Wait... it's not a mental hospital?"

Oops. My mistake.

Really, I figured the saw could be handy for cutting through the bars.
