The Humpkin

Hi Steve,

In the spirit of the season, and in general celebration of strange feats of nature (i.e. 'the tree brain'), I thought I would send you a few pictures of a pumpkin my father found in his patch recently.

Never one to rise above sophomoric humor (thank god), he quickly pointed out the natural, way too easy phallic resemblance...assuming, of course, the phallus in question was afflicted with our old friend, elephantiasis.

As far as the actual growth, I'm not sure what happened--if one fruit was pierced and sprouted into two, or if the two somehow fused together. In either case, I'm just pleased that the gourd gods blessed us with this great fertile gift.

Yours Truly,

P.S. I tried my best to photograph the fruit from a number of naturally explicit angles...including a close up of what I would classify as the fruit's taint region.

Thanks, Lucas. I'll have my wife send you her recipe for Pumpkin Taint Pie.

And on a personal note, I can't hear the word "elephantiasis" without thinking of this photo of the gentleman on the left.

A general rule of thumb: if it looks like you're riding a Hoppity Hop, and you're not, it's probably elephantiasis.
