Looks Like There's A New Pumpkin-Carving Champion This Halloween

Looks Like There's A New Pumpkin-Carving Champion This Halloween

It's getting to that time of year again - GOTH CHRISTMAS. Sorry, Halloween. For some, another excuse to hit the town (albeit in costume) and get exceptionally drunk. The spooky holiday purists, though, will be at home watching horror movies on Netflix, the room only illuminated by the flicker of a candle inside a pumpkin.

We've all tried it, shovelling out the mess inside to a preposterous smell, then having a torrid time trying to carve something that resembles a face into its tough orange skin.

It rarely works out and the Jack-o'-lanterns rarely get shown off in the window. There are people though, who are exceptionally skilled when it comes to this particular artistic endeavour - people like @thepumpkingeek, who can carve just about anything you ask him to.


It's not even as if they're just good at it, or indeed very good at it. Compare it to our meagre efforts, and they're basically taking the piss.

Like, come on mate, we know you're good, but wind it in a bit.

It's sort of like you want to give him something really challenging, like : "Oi, pal, do Boba Fett. Oh, you've already done it."


"Ah, but can you do The Joker?"


"Beetlejuice then, if you're so fucking good!?"


"Alright, dickhead, no one likes a show-off. Just do me a Yoda, a Harry Potter one for the kids, a Game of Thrones one and I'll be on my way."
