Jerk-o-lanterns

October 29th, 2009 · 157 comments

Chris in Valdosta, Georgia came home last Halloween Eve to find this friendly reminder taped to every mailbox in his quiet little cul-de-sac. (“It’s a little worse for wear,” Chris explains, “because I ripped it off and stomped it on a few times before scanning it.”)

A reminder from your neighborhood preacher

The underlying message, interestingly enough, actually isn’t all that different from this one, by an unhappy Halloween celebrant in Somersworth, New Hampshire.

Whoever stole my Pumpkin, I hope you ROTT [sic] IN HELL.

Meanwhile, Jake in Grand Rapids, Michigan came home last Halloween to this glowing display in his living room. “Apparently my roommate and his girlfriend had spent all day working on them,” Jake says. “I don’t think he was mad at me for any one particular thing, but he did this sort of thing on a fairly regular basis…which made living with him pretty entertaining.”

FUCK YOU JAKE...DIE

      1.1 Neneers, Jake needn’t be too worried – the knives are probably pretty dull by now if the poor guy comes home to these pumpkins every day.

      However, I wouldn’t eat any pumpkin pie the roomie makes unless he takes a bite first.

    Dear Jake,

    You just might be an asshole, but your roommate doesn’t have enough money to break the lease. Might want to investigate that possibility.

      Meanwhile, here on Earth they should be forcibly tattooed completely orange from the neck up, with black triangles tattooed around their noses and eyes and a black toothy mouth tattooed around their mouths.

      Fun fact: There is a building at my old high school called, “House of Prayer.” Our senior year, my friends and I tacked on an “international” to the beginning as well as a giant IHOP sign (just to make sure people got it). Administration had a coronary, students cracked up, and it was one of my better high school stories.

    Thessalonians 5:16 & 17
    * Rejoice evermore.
    * Pray without ceasing

    Tell the local preacher to get back at that and leave everyone else the fuck alone. Couldn’t possibly have been rejoicing AND praying while typing such a hateful epistle

    Not to mention 5:13 “[...]And be at peace among yourselves” and5:9 ” For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ”

    That’s quite enough bible for one week, ask him how that whole not sleeping thing is working out (5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.)

      Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s gotta pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.

      It’s nice when instead of turning off their light and not participating in the ‘Devil’s Holiday’ (I call bs on that by the way), our friendly religious wing nuts give the kids pamphlets that say they are going to hell. Mama bear doesn’t like it when you threaten her cubs people.

      Don’t push the propaganda! Our kids aren’t sacrificing your cats in the garage on Halloween they are just out for a fun time and a little candy.

      I used to live in the Jewish part of town, and I have no problem with them not handing out hallowe’en candy or the fact that they go trick-or-treating on a different holiday but only to Jewish houses (note: lots of Jews do trick-or-treat it depends on the area and the branch of Judaism.)

      So if you believe trick-or-treating is wrong turn your front lights out and people will leave you alone!

      As a card carrying member of the Christian Wacko Right Wing, or the CWRW as we like to say, I find it rather amusing and ignorant when people make such a big deal out of Halloween. If you look at our traditional practices for Christian holidays, you’ll find that a good number of them originated with what would be deemed pagan rites and rituals. I personally don’t care for the death imagery and witchcraft aspects of Halloween, so we don’t engage in that. But every Christian that gives out Easter eggs and chocolate bunnies, is engaging in the same religious practices from which Halloween originated. Now… let the candy flow! And not that cheap crap, either. We want Reese’s and Snickers and Kit-Kats and M&M’s. *no candy corn, please*

However, I appreciate that the cartoon depicts humans living alongside dinosaurs as the real fossil record indicates and not the ones planted by the punkinheaded Jews in the ’30′s that Humanists have tried to call evidence that man evolved millions of years later.

      “…nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, one girl sitting on her own in a small cafe in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place. This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything.”

      In defence of the preacher, Phil Spectre does live up to his name nowadays. But maybe it should read, abstain from all evil, in that case. He ain’t foolin’ nobody.

      This is linked here because I’m trying to tie spectre, and sceptic into septic, tying it into the flaming bags of poo. But, I give up. The anal expulsive flaw and floor is open.

      Maybe Phil Spector is hiding in the preacher’s closet? Or in his own hair?

      Phil Spectre already has a strike against him he just ‘looks’ evil.

      Yes, pumpkins are very cheap here in the USA. In order to ensure that we have an ample supply of Jack-o-Lantern worthy stock, we subsidize the pumpkin industry with the great sums of money we spend on health care.

      I’m in Canada (Ontario) and they’re $1.49-$3

      But when my grandma was growing up in Newfoundland they didn’t have pumpkins so they carved “turnips” (what would now be called rutabaga, swede, or yellow turnip). She claims they were softer inside then the ones you get nowadays (god I hope so).

      So don’t dispair if you can’t get pumpkins, just carve something else!

      Though I often wonder what those people starving in 3rd world countries would think of us carving pumpkins -or worse getting all Martha Stewart and using real lemons, limes, etc for the sole purpose of decorating (like to fill a vase).

      As popular as the “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” policy is in the military, many posters here seem to want to adopt it for other areas. Introducing “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” for ideological positions. You’re welcome to subscribe to a religion, provided you aren’t “openly” religious. Sure, the first amendment lets you practice religion, but apparently that doesn’t included the proselytizing mandated by some religions, after all, if you say, “Hey check out this religion” to someone, they may be compelled against their wishes to irreversible convert!

      It’s great that we can all join in bashing the pastor’s self expression, so I hope you’ll join me in my anti-picketing picketing.

      Do you mean you don’t agree with the literal content, or do you disagree with something you happened to infer from what I wrote? If it’s the latter, then aren’t you really disagreeing with yourself (as the originator of the meaning being disagreed with)? Either way, keep up the good work.

      My lack of severe paranoia seems to be preventing me from seeing the “outrageous and offensive” character of the first note that was apparent enough to some to justify threats of violence (fictitious as they were).

      I understand that a high level of discourse was never the goal of this website, but it certainly seems more fun to make fun of the people who wrote passive aggressive notes, then to be passive aggressive about notes which are not.

By the time he came home I had cooled off and we had a laugh. I woke up the next morning to scrambled eggs with “You’re a bitch” written in ketchup.
