ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
They would be even creepier once carefully carved- eyeballs, nostrils and a thin line between the lips should do the trick.
I saw an old newsreel-type short about a farmer who was doing this on TMC’s One Reel Wonders. This farmer made his pumpkins shaped like skulls rather than human heads, though. I was a little disappointed to see that Vegiform site only had lameass elves and stuff and no skulls.
Aha . . . this explains the pajama-soaking nightmare epidemic among Popular Science readers in early 1938.
I was bracing myself for “human feces” instead of “human faces.”
Which one is the pumpkin?
I also thought it said “feces.”
Am I the only one who originally read that as “human feces”?
http://www.vegiforms.com/ sells molds to make your veggies into creepy looking faces.
This is an outrage!
mmmmm this isn’t about feces at all. while looking at the photo i noticed that the fonzes face is in the bottom left hand corner.
How long can it be before we see a dildo tree?

Not long… (but really long)
I don’t know which one has the creepier eyebrows…
If you really want to scar/scare a friend who’s passed out drunk, take him and leave him in a field where these are growing. Night would be creepy, but even in the middle of the day, it’d give one the heebies. Would be interesting as a strategy for alcohol cessation. ‘Course, every year he might have to leave the country for the whole month of October for somewhere that gourds don’t grow.
