The Great Pumpkin Showdown VI: The Squashening!

Posted on October 30, 2009 by Grant Skinner

For the sixth year, the crew broke out the brightly colored, child-safe pumpkin tools and mutilated some innocent pumpkins.

As always, we broke into teams of two, based on seniority, ate a lot of sugar, drank a lot of beer, and tried to carve up some cool jack’o’lanterns.

The bar seems to have been raised this year, and I think we have our best set of entries to date. Likewise, I think the voting app is our best yet. According to tradition, it was built by our newest hire. He even built an AIR configuration app for the whole thing. Good work Shawn!

Please vote, and feel free to comment on the pumpkins or the app in the comments below.

Voted for Tinker Bell. Would have voted for Green Man if it was actually Raymond Robinson ( and not Charlie Kelly.

In fact Oscar was interviewed last week on the CBC radio program "Q" and admitted that he is ,in fact , Canadian. So I had to go with him.
