The real Pumpkin Blagojevich.
We're celebrating Halloween around here in two ways: we're gorging ourselves on Bit O'Honeys and we're holding our first ever Pumpkin Carving Contest. You have to be able to do better than Pumpkin Blagojevich.
Here's the rules: carve a pumpkin based on somebody, or something, in the news. Maybe Joe Biden! Maybe balloon boy! Maybe an avant garde piece representing Kate Gosselin's hair! Up to you. Take a picture, send it to us at waitwait (at) npr (dot) org. We'll post them up here, and our favorite gets Carl's voice on their home answering machine.
Get your submission to us by
October 29thHalloween. And please, people, stab your pumpkins carefully.
