I can’t help it; I love Punkin Chunkin’. There’s just something about launching pumpkins a few hundred feet that gets the blood pumping. Perhaps it’s the satisfying splat at the end or the machines throwing them, but whatever the case — chunkin’ is cool.
This clip from YouTube is a great example of how building the right machine doesn’t have to be a great hulking monstrosity (although that’s cool, too) in order to have some fun chunkin’ punkins.
