Political Pumpkin Fiasco  
Ok, so I was completely excited to find the www.yeswecarve.com website - which had stencils for carving Obama logos into halloween jack o' lanterns.  I looked forward to it for a week - I even changed my twitter avatar to the 'yes we carve' obama pumpkin symbol.  So the time came - sunday night... chores and studying finished, it was time to dive into our 'yes we carve' festivities.  I thought I might try a stencil of Barack's face - perhaps the iconic Shepard Fairey "HOPE" piece... but decided with only one pumpkin that I should err on the side of caution.  So I picked simply, VOTE with the O as Obama's campaign logo.  I thought it would be cute to carve an evil pointy-toothed smile under it, just to give it a bit of halloween spooky flavor.  So I did.  And I was all proud of it when I finished - ready to send off my picture to the 'yes we carve' website.  Then we took our pumpkins out to the night porch and lit them.  I looked down and suddenly realized I had inadvertantly (but unmistakably) created a pro-GOP pumpkin!!! (although the O logo created a bit of a mixed signal).  To my true horror (happy halloween), I looked down and saw "VOTE W".  Holy SHIT!  I gave a terrified scream that echoed through the peaceful stillness of my neighborhood at midnight.  I then proceeded to scoop my pumpkin up and dash inside to try to turn my pumpkin blue.  Toothless... but blue.  Phew.  A true fright.


NO! Don't Vote W!!! by you.

Toothless Blue Grin:

toothless but blue! VOTE O!!! by you.
