The Jesus O' Lantern - for those still looking for a carving design for this year's Halloween pumpkin.

I've been letting nature carve my pumpkin this year. The cyclops should be complete by Sunday.

This would be good for my SO's family's church's "Fall Festival" that they celebrate because Halloween is too pagan and eeeeevil.

But a "Fall Festival"? Noooo, that's not pagan at all...

Careful. If you make a pumpkin that is blasphemous to Jesus Christ, ya might git struck by lightning, just like Jim Caviezel of Mel Gibson's "The Passion of Christ" has been, twice. Everyone's a critic. Even God.

I would feel bad when I filled up Jesus with shaving cream and heaved him straight up in the air in the middle of the street. But I would still do it, because the sound is so cool, and he would forgive me, I know he would.

Joyfully Carving Him.

And just where does pumpkin pie fit in with the blood and body of Christ?

This is my pie. Take. Eat. And make a plate to take for thine mate who had to work. And take upon thee leftovers, but thou shalt return the Tupperware or suffer great wrath upon thine house.

ZachsMind: Some people just can't take a hint, can they?

I once played a medieval priest at a renaissance festival, and just before a rainstorm that closed us early that day, I almost got struck by lightning while entertaining an audience during the chess match. Actually the lightning struck a tree within spitting distance of the chess field, but I got the message: God wanted the punchline. It was an unique experience, playing straightman for God, but if He'd actually hit me spot on, yeah I woulda taken the hint.

Here's some slightly less religious pumpkin patterns and strategies.

Here's a totally non-religious pumpkin carving. Unless you worship at the church of goatse, that is.

Zachmind: realistic pumpkin-like FunKins? Now that's blaphemous.
Argh! It's a freaking harvest festival, not a styrofoam fest!

Well yeah DenOfSizer, but that'd be blasphemous to pagans, which is an entirely different can of wormy pumpkin guts to get into.

Favorite quote of the day for me:

"Follow the directions for this optical illusion and see Jesus for yourself!"

I figure anyone who objects to "All Hallow's Eve" as being "too pagan", should lobby their local church to more visibly celebrate "All Saint's Day", which is the other half of the holiday.

(And then they should quit celebrating Christmas in December, but that's another issue entirely.)

Funny, I was just here earlier this morning. I carved Ozzy and an Orc last year; I'm thinking Jack Skellington and the Pumpkin King are just the ticket this year.

machaus, hope to see the final cut slugs' creation.

"The inside of the pumpkin represents the sin in our life."

Oh man. We've got some real cult leader potential here.

Emmalea, don't sell yourself short.
