Take a clear plastic form, generally spherical, and place it over a pumpkin flower. A few months later and a pumpkin grows to fit the shape. So... how about clear plastic forms shaped like famous people's heads so that the pumpkins grow into them and come out resembling Cher, George Bush, Yanni- anyone! Instant jack-o-lanterns with celebrity motifs? Bella Lugosi for Halloween, Madonna for Valentine's Day, Smokey the Bear on Arbor Day- this could single-handedly pull the pumpkin out of October obscurity and into year long holiday relevance!

I wonder if you'd get enough detail for a face to be recognizable.

       // George Bush //   

       No. Because the pumpkin would probably be brighter and more articulate than the original.

       Just make sure the flower is pollinated first. [8th] Watermelon heads ought to liven up your target practice.

       Bella Lugosi must be your genuine fugly!

       Great for your next WTO protest! Smashable and biodegradeable. +

       All political jokes noted and appreciated- but why limit ourselves to heads? What about other body parts? We could single-handedly pull the pumpkin out of October obscurity and into the porn industry!

       ASLAN, you're a sick person. I very much appreciate that.

       I just found this idea from 4 years ago, and feel it deserves another chance at racking up some buns. It's fantastic.
