This is great. I've always found POMO stuff to be gibberish:

Great satire both. Especially liked the one on postmodernism gibberish.

One of our national oddities is the annual challenge to grow the largest pumpkin. We Rhode Islanders have a bit of a size complex, so when something like this happens, it's big news. From the smallest town in the smallest county in the smallest state comes this year's largest pumpkin in North America weighing in at 2,230.5 lbs/1,011.7 k.

Totally useless, totally inedible, but people are flocking to the farm to see it. :)

Blame Guinness. The world record folks. For the life of me, I don't understand this pumpkin fetish we seem to have. But even worse is the hot-dog eating contest. And worse than that is the need to cover it EVERY YEAR on the news. :no:

The only positive is the at least the pumpkin isn't disgusting like the hotdog-eating contest. I never could understand that fascination for gross excess.
