Extreme Pumpkin Carving

Tom Nardone, of, brings us pumpkin guessed the extreme.

From his extreme pumpkin carving website-

"At what point did the carving of pumpkins turn into a "cute" event? When did boys stop carving pumpkins and moms start? Where did we lose touch with one of the years coolest events?

Today we will seize back this ritual. Today is the day we throw away those safe, cute carving tools. Today. We will buy a big, ugly, pumpkin so large one man cannot lift or move it. Today. We will carve that sumbitch into something ugly and plop it on the front porch. October 31st we will light it brightly enough to give visiting children suntans."

Along with a photo gallery full of many extremely well carved pumpkins like the Electrocution Pumpkin (lit with a road flare) and the Flame Job Pumpkin (carved using a router and jig saw), Tom presents a video display of three foot flames shooting from a pumpkin.

Have fun and remember, Halloween just isn't Halloween til someone loses a finger! :)
