Pumpkins for 'Merica

I know what you are thinkin'. "In this economy, can I really afford a pumpkin that big?" Consider the consumer confidence level. If you and others don't buy big pumpkins, the pumpkin farmers will have less money to buy Christmas presents this year. A reported 40% of retail sales happen at Christmas time. With sales down, consumer confidence will continue to slide. So, buy this pumpkin, you owe it to 'Merica. What d' ya say?
