Catapulting Pumpkins: Clean Manly Fun!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Lake Orion, Mich., hosted its fourth annual Pumpkin Launch, an event utilizing physics to send pumpkins flying hundreds of feet across a field.

pumpkinsFour teams used devices called trebuchets, Middle Age war machines similar to catapults, to hurl pumpkins into the far distance Saturday, the Detroit Free Press reported."


Getting rid of the pumpkins that I use to decorate my front porch is always a pain in the neck. Using them to bake pumpkin pies is not an option, I hate pumpkin pie.

I need to buy one of these catapults; it would be fun to get rid of my pumpkins by catapulting them to the homes of my unsuspecting neighbors. I have as much use for my neighbors as I have for pumpkins.

Men are little boys at heart, and I`m sure I`m not the only dude who would love to wreak havoc by catapulting pumpkins.
