Pumpkin Birth

Pumpkins giving birth? I had no idea this was a thing. But, apparently it is.

All I can think of when I look at them is, “Yep, that’s about right.”

Without further ado, here are all the delightful and terrifyingly accurate photos of pumpkins giving birth.

I love the horrified pumpkin in the background. That’s right, Buddy, birth isn’t always pretty so smarten up before she kicks your ass with her butternut squash legs.

I wish someone would move that knife out of the shot and clean that poor pumpkin up. She doesn’t need that nonsense.

This gourd really has it together. Candles, music, skinny legs and full control over her birth. Bravo!

That’s a pretty awesome rack that pumpkin is sporting. It sort of cancels out the mess she made on the table, non?

This was carved by an OB nurse for the hospital she works at and I think it’s totally kickass.

There you have it. I hope you’re as disturbed as I am with the emotional accuracy that some of these pumpkins possess.  Happy Halloween!
