Last year, when the farmer's market was looking sad with nothing but kale and onions and potatoes, I bought a sugar pumpkin, just 'cause it looked so cute.

I decided to refrain from clicking on these links, deciding to keep the last shred of faith in humanity that I had. But today, curiosity got the best of me.
