Yes, that is a pumpkin. Yes, it is real. No I did not create it. I can not even draw a decent stick figure despite being the director of a creative department. Every year at work we have a pumpkin carving contest and every year one of my co-workers puts every other jack-o-lantern to shame.
You can see my lame attempt in the top photo in on the far right, the one with all the junk still inside. It is supposed to be a snake.
