my god is delicious.

To all you blasphemers and naysayers, I present incontrovertible proof that my deity of choice does exist:

Behold, the Great Pumpkin.

That ought to put a stop to theological arguments around here. 

The Great Pumpkin: The Pragmatic Choice.  What other deity will yield a few hundred tasty pies from his innards, and still have enough substance to make a kick-ass lawn decoration?

Convert now, I say, before the most high holy day of our religion.

    Marko, don’t take this the wrong way, but I think you’re out of your gourd.

    /Here all week, try the steak…

  3. “Connolly, a 53-year old manufacturing engineer in his day job, told the Globe that competitive pumpkin-growing (is) “just middle-aged guys having fun.”…mother f’r, he’s my age; if that’s my fun i’m eating my gun…

    tongue-in-cheek and humorously derisive i know, but i eventually realized that if i was going to consider the existence of ghosts that it would be far better for my own self-guidance and my influence on my kids if it was a benevolent force for good rather than evil goblins and zombies…but that’s just me.

    “That ought to put a stop to theological arguments around here.”…like that was gonna happen.

    Most religious discussions I’ve seen here are spawned from deliberately provocative statements in the OP (hey, it’s your blog, no offense intended).

    Nothing wrong with a spirited discussion, mind, but “believer baiting” is bound to elicit strong, easily predictable reactions. Just sayin’.

    “believer baiting”

    You know if you don’t stop doing that you’ll go blind…

    I like pie.

    All I can say is, Gourd bless you.

    Happy Halloween,

    I’d like to take a moment to apologise to anyone whose invisible friend got upset by any of my comments.

    No, really. My imaginary friend gets upset when people don’t pay me on time. I know what it’s like.

    Nothin’ but sympathy.

    We of the apple-pecan proletariat will crush you with our fluffy-crusted, cinnamon tastiness!

    PIE WAR!

    Just remember, the cake is a lie.

  12. M. Philbrick says:

    I think that pumpkin might take over the world. Please stop with the pumpkin based puns, I’m dying here…

  13. yeah, i likes pie, too…pumpkin not so much but hey, if it’s the body of Christ (to the extent that everything and everybody is), then all hail great pumpkin and i’ll have me some some lovin’ spoonsful too…mmm, spicy!

    but it’s hard to bait a believer that has a pretty vague idea just what the hell he believes…just that there’s more of a method to the madness and to our existence than our physical selves, and hopefully not zombies and warlords from other dimensions, although that could be fun.

    and even a jew with even less specific belief than me pays homage the best i’ve ever heard it done…

    listen to that loud and then say the spirit didn’t move you…if you can then maybe you really ain’t got no soul.


  14. i was fifteen years old when i heard that for the first time in 1969…and i don’t know any more about that spirit in the sky now than i did then; less i think…but maybe that’s the plan.

    We may actually get to worship at The Holy Pumpkin today, in Warren, RI.

    I’ll give Its Squashiness and its disciples your regards.

    Did you hear the NPR article about exploding pumpkins? Hilarious in that radio way.


  16. Jay G says:

    BTW Marko, I have bad news for you.

    Your god explodes when hit with a S&W .500 Magnum round

  17. BlueNight says:

    My god is tasty too, and quenches thirst, and though He’s a little high in carbs, He tastes like sweet, sweet redemption.

    And the Great Pumpkin is one of his closest advisors.
