The Great Pumpkin Showdown ’07

Posted on November 1, 2007 by Lanny McNie

One of our favorite non-flash events here at is the pumpkin carving contest. This year was no exception, and we split into 4 teams (in order of seniority), and converted ordinary squash into ordinary squash with holes and a candle, which is just as good an excuse as any to drink beer and eat copious amounts of sugar at 2:45 on a Wednesday.

Unfortunately, even though our company grew. the number of entries is the same as last year. Grant and his wife are galavanting around Europe, so not only did they miss out on the festivities, but we missed out on Bobi’s yummy halloween goodies (and their company of course).

Like every year, here is our vote-o-matic. Sadly, we were too busy this year to make the interns build a new one (another tradition), but don’t let that stop you from casting your vote! We’ll declare a winner on Monday morning.

Here is a group photo.

Happy Halloween from all of us at!

No Phillip, Bush won by targeting political issues close to our hearts... such as:
