Fall is Karen’s favorite season, and pumpkins are her favorite autumnal decoration, so it’s no surprise that this poster caught her eye.

The Big Ten Inch landed in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2010. To gain some glory for yourself, all you have to do is launch a pumpkin more than 5545.43 feet.

Normally, all this produce propulsion would be enough excitement for one day, but then a familiar name popped up on the entry board for the pumpkin pie-eating contest. And you thought airborne pumpkins were messy.
