  1. Or it could be a hat out of a Tim Buton movie/Dr. Suede book.

  2. I love the ugly pumpkin thing. My dear wife and I often decorate our home with ugly pumpkins around this time of year. And we get so jealous of the really big, really ugly ones our neighbors often display.

  3. Awesome find! I search every year for gourds/pumpkins that will resemble something fun. My only regret is that, until recently, I never took pictures of the fun shapes I’ve discovered.
    The best one by far was the penis, which inspired the entire tradition, but despite not finding another as good, I’ve had a lot of fun looking.

  4. Very cool! I’m a little perplexed that “because it’s just such a cool-looking thing” counts as “no particular reason,” but to each his own!

    @Scorpius: “Dr Suede” is the name of my next band.

  5. I think it was trying to grow into a Klein Gourd.

  6. Those look like little faces around the base of the tentacle.
