Pumpkin Poop

So I’ve gotten snowman poop before for Christmas (2 cotton balls glued to a piece of paper) but I never knew about pumpkin poop. I found this poem online and now I am cackling!

I started to carve a pumpkin
With my carving knife and scoop.
But the pumpkin got so scared
He took a little poop.
It looked so cute and funny
Just like a candy treat.
So I’m sharing it with you now
Because you’re so sweet.

Here are some fun facts about candy corn too:

-October 30th is National Candy Corn Day
-One serving of candy corn contains only about 140 calories
-Candy corn has 3.57 calories per kernel
-More than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be produced this year. That equates to nearly 9 billion pieces — enough to circle the moon nearly four times if laid end-to-end.
-Halloween accounts for 75% of the annual candy corn production
and last but not least (and probably my favorite because I’ve eaten candy corn ’til I was nauseous)
-A cup of candy corn has fewer calories than a cup of raisins.

I hope you found room for that bit of useless yet fun knowledge, and I wish you a safe and Happy Halloween.

P.S. Don’t go home until your bag is full… of pumpkin poop!

Spooky Tree

Posted in Nature by leahyetter on October 27, 2010

Over the next few days leading up to Halloween, I will attempt to creep you out with spooky images I’ve captured over the last few months.   Be prepared to be scared.     oohoohahahaaa.

We went out on a photo hunt one evening and climbed up to one of our favorite rocks to look for elk. I looked over at this dead tree and saw the moon acting as the eyeball for him and then I could see his whole face. Creepy, eh?
