Rotting Project

Come pumpkin season, I'm going to put a plastic skull into a pumpkin that's slightly bigger than the skull and let it rot. I'll cut a small mouth slit and some eye holes while it's fresh so the rot can start at those places first and pull back to reveal a dirty skull. Hopefully the skin of the pumpkin stays tight against the skull. Like a human head would look if it were rotting on the ground.

I predict that it will look fairly disturbing. I also dig these post Halloween projects, like the corpses buried in the snow. It's as if to say to the neighbors, "Say, why is this season supposed to end anyway?"

The next time we have snow in Texas that lasts more than 12 hours, I'm going to build a snowman around my Bucky skeleton. Just so I can see the snow melt and reveal it.

That sounds like an awesome idea. Maybe you could do a time lapse video of the rotting process.

Sounds pretty cool. Like a long-term tribute to Halloween II's opening credits!

Where do these ideas come from? It couldn't be your extremely healthy and intelligent fascination with Hallowe'en, could it?..lol
