They’re back! Petrifying Pumpkin Zombies, the dreaded “Pumpkinheads” of Halloween, oozing out of patch near you. But what are they really? And what’s the best way to defend your home and family and more importantly, your Halloween candy! against them?
Pumpkin Zombie Preparedness Plans have traditionally focused on the use of jack-o-lanterns. Since Celtic times, humans learned to carve scary-faced little pumpkin heads of their own, lit up with candles and placed by the front door at Halloween because of ancient studies that showed jack-o-lanterns to be effective at warding off everything from evil spirits to political parties, which included the dreaded Pumpkin Zombies and their slimy orange hands of death.
Until lately. In recent years the jack-o-lantern effect appears to be wearing off. There are more and more reports of attacks by these hideous slimy orange beings. Why? Are genetically modified pumpkins producing bigger, slimier and scarier pumkinoids than ever before? Or have we become lax in our jack-o-lantern carving, forgetting their important life-saving function to focus on decoration? All those dangerously grinning gourds?
Whatever the case, there are more and more reports everyday of attacks by these slimy, lumbering orange beings and this Halloween is sure to be a record. So how to defend yourself?
Well as Pumpkin Zombie correspondent ARC the Reaper reminds us below, carving a good, effective jack-o-lantern is still your first line of defense. An effective jack-o-lantern should be scarier than it is funny, at least when it is lit up. But then it doesn’t hurt to include exploding pumpkin seeds, if you happen to have some handy.
Of course you could always just turn to the pumpkin gun, like Survivor Ron, below…
