Bad Pinterest Ideas

This is one of those craft projects one runs across on Pinterest. It's supposed to be an alternative to carving pumpkins for Halloween--just stretch a stocking over your pumpkins instead!

First of all, how lazy do you have to be not to carve pumpkins for Halloween? I don't carve pumpkins for Halloween, admittedly, but that's because I hate Halloween. I try to deny it even exists. Hallo-what? But even if you were that lazy, and didn't hate Halloween, why not just put out uncarved pumpkins? Or draw a face on the pumpkin with a magic marker? It would still look better than this, which reminds me of that leg lamp from A Christmas Story. I can just imagine some tiny trick-or-treator (-treater?) seeing that on someone's front porch and going, "Mommy, why did that lady put a stocking on top of her pumpkin?" Why indeed, little kid.
