  • Are you familiar at all with punkin chunkin'? They have a website too. I like mangold hurling much better, but still--in the annals of vegetable pitching societies, you really can't avoid mentioning punkin chunkin'

  • It was the end of October, the beginning of November.

    The air was cold and clear and I said, Boys listen here,

    I think I can make a punkin fly.

    John said, Cannot. I said, Can too.

    So we put that punkin in a bucket, swung around, away it flew.

    John said, No fair. We said, Hell, it's in the air.

    So the challenge was made and the gauntlet was laid

    To build a machine to power a punkin through the air.

    John said, Springs are the way to go. Bill said, I don't believe so.

    It's Punkin Chunkin time again.

    Come on, all you neighbors and friends.

    I'll show you how to make a punkin fly ... rain, snow or blow.

    Them punkins are gonna go!
