Every year I try to persuade the few creative brain-cells I have to come up with a current, funny and ultimately scary pumpkin head to sit outside my door on Halloween. This year, however, I am simply not going to bother as I have without doubt been beaten to the punch. I could even say I’ve been ‘trumped’! Not only is the new craze both very funny and terrifying, but it even has a catchy name. Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Donald Trumpkin!
There will be some search result conflicts when you google the phrase ‘trumpkin’, as this is also the name of a character from the Chronicles of Narnia. Just enter ‘Donald Trumpkin’ to the images section and you will not be misdirected. People across the US and beyond are filling their window ledges with comical carvings of Donald Trump. Maybe it’s his over use of makeup in public appearances or his bulbous head that lends itself to the use of a pumpkin. All I know is when I look at some of these creations, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. There is no question that the carving in the above picture is a clear winner, but just for shits and giggles here are some of the best I have come across.
I think the enjoyable thing about the whole craze is, families can share some quality time smashing the hell out of it when Halloween is all over.
