HNT #24 - The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead

Peter Pumpkinhead put to shame
Governments who would slur his name
Plots and sex scandals failed outright
Peter merely said
Any kind of love is alright
But he made too many enemies...
Peter Pumpkinhead was too good
Had him nailed to a chunk of wood
He died grinning on live TV
Hanging there he looked a lot like you
And an awful lot like me!
-Andy Partridge (XTC)

Trick or treat? You decide. Halloween isn't a big deal here in Australia, but I couldn't resist having a go at a Halloween themed HNT this week. Luckily I had this Jack O' Lantern novelty that I picked up on a visit to the States and so I put it to good use. As an added bonus, it fits in nicely with the XTC song that I chose to accompany the picture. I hope you like it.

The words and the picture go well together. They both rock too. ;)

Happy HNT!

I was wondering how one would secure such a novelty outside the US, now I know! Fun! And thank you for not making me the only Halloween theme!

What a fun shot and the poem, too!

I wonder why Halloween isn't big there. It's such a fun time! :)

You crack me up! Nice job this week, especially considering Halloween isn't big where you live!

I know this isn't the focus of the picture, but I can't help but notice what nice hands you have--yet again. :)

That's funny how you're holding so it's proportioned just right for your body. :) And how sad that Halloween's not a big deal down under. It's a BLAST here! :)

Nice one!

Should I be worried by how much you look like me? ;)

Happy HNT, sir!
