Behold the Winning Pumpkin

My office building decided to hold its first annual pumpkin carving contest last week. Each company or organization in the building was allowed to enter one pumpkin.


Internally, our office held a mini-contest to determine which pumpkin would go into the building-wide competition. There were about 8 or 9 entries, and my department's entry -- the Pumpkin Burger -- won both the office- and building-wide contests.


Everything in our entry was edible, too... in theory, at least. We did use glue to adhere the seeds to the pumpkin's exterior.


Sadly, we haven't had a similar contest since. The other building-wide entries were a far cry from the creativity exhibited by our office's preliminary entries.
