The Reason Why Humans Carve Pumpkins

Today I want to explain the traditional carving of the Halloween pumpkin. Some of my readers probably wonder why the humans bother go to the trouble to carve a pumpkin. The origin of pumpkin carving goes way back in time....back so far that it is considered legend. For my more modern readers who have probably seen the "documentary" movies put out by Hollywood--"The Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" series, then you know that sometimes vegetables go on killing sprees and have to be stopped by whatever means necessary. In ancient times, it was the pumpkins that went on the killing spree. The ancient humans did not know what to do...pumpkins were running amok and killing everything in sight. Of course, who do you think solved the problem? If you guessed a dog, then you would be correct. Sam, a Siberian Husky, was on a daily run when he noticed all the mayhem left behind by the pumpkins. He would not have believed that pumpkins were so horrible had he not seen the pumpkins in action with his own two eyes. The humans had been dealing with this problem for years, but had found no solution to it. However, Sam, being a dog, was much smarter than the humans. He returned to his pack and told them to get their teeth was time to "carve" some pumpkins. The dogs mushed to the pumpkin hide-out, and they used their teeth to carve the pumpkins into all sorts of cute shapes so that they were never a problem again. The pumpkins were tying to avoid being made to look so silly by the dogs so they stopped their bad behavior. When the humans saw what the dogs have done, they decided to invent knives so that they could carve the pumpkins before the pumpkins got nasty with them. Now every year the humans carve pumpkins at Halloween to remind the pumpkins that they had better not cause any more trouble. That is the true story of how pumpking carving originated.
