… and a last minute entry.
The Rutherfords. What can I say? In typical Rutherford form, they sent their Pumpkin Carve-Off entry in at 4:05 pm, Sunday afternoon. 16 hours late, and five minutes after the final grouping was posted. And at first I was all like, too late, Rutherfords – you can suck it. But people, when I saw their photos I thought you needed to see them too. Because 1) their pumpkin amazing, and 2) there are some seriously creepy kid hands in the bottom right-hand corner of the second photo. Creepy Rutherford child hands. There’s nothing more chilling than that. So, I leave it to you. You can vote for them if you like their pumpkin. Or if you think: too bad, Rutherfords, you should have sent your photos on time like the rest of us bloody well did? Then don’t vote for them. That’s reasonably fair, right?
So, here are the finalists plus the eleventh-hour Rutherfords. Now is the time to call in your favours. If you want to win, you’re going to have to get out there and force people to vote for you. Please visit the original posts for Group 1 and Group 2 if you’d like some additional information/photos of our finalists’ pumpkins. And remember, a vote for The Rutherfords is a vote for creepy child hands.
PUMPKIN 1 – winner, Group 1 – Haddy’s Butternut, The Long Goodnight
PUMPKIN 2 – winner, Group 2 – Bill Beaucoup’s Cat Farm Shout Out
PUMPKIN 3 – runner-up, Group 1 – 2.0’s Spooky Tree
PUMPKIN 4 – runner-up, Group 2 – Michelle’s Grim Reaper
PUMPKIN 5 – losers late entry – The Rutherfords’ Extra Late Extra-Terrestrial
Also, I would just like to say that my pumpkin received fewer votes than any other pumpkin in round one. But I won’t think of you as jerks. I’ll think of you as people with bad taste.
Now, go forth and cast your votes!
Voting will close at 11 pm (Atlantic/Halifax, NS time), Monday, October 31st. Happy Halloween!
Oh, and guess what? Ginger 2011 is just around the corner. Start planning your gingerbread houses!
