It’s the Not-So-Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

From the “contests I’m not sure I’d want to win” department comes this giant pumpkin, seen at the mall today in front of a sandwich shop: 

(apologies for the crummy photo.  The sign reads “Guess my weight, win lunch and take me home!”)

Sure, a free lunch sounds like it might be nice, but based on seeing a number of these for sale at a Fred Meyer recently ($30 apiece, for pumpkins in the 110-120 pound range ), I’d have to guess this one probably weighs somewhere in the neighborhood of 130 pounds.  While it’s kind of interesting to see one of these giant pumpkins (although they can get much bigger than this one,) I’m not entirely sure what one of these things would actually be useful for, short of inflicting hernias on roving bands of pumpkin smashing teenagers on halloween.
