Things You Can Carve That Aren't A Pumpkin

Your Halloween decor is in danger! According to Reuters, an uncharacteristically rainy June - mixed with the spread of vegetable blights and mildews - has ruined America's supply of pumpkins. That means you may have to improvise when it comes time to carve your jack-o'-lantern.

But don't worry, there are many alternatives that are sure to make your Halloween just as spooky.

1. Apples

Added bonus: the face will get even grislier as exposure to air browns the apple's face.

2. Milk jugs

OK, these aren't actually carved, but using a permanent marker is safer. And easier. Celebrate Halloween and recycle all at once!

3. Watermelons

The best part is that you can have a snack while hollowing out the rind.

4. Turnips

In Ireland, the turnip was the original jack-o'-lantern.

5. Pineapples

Looks like Spongebob's been evicted until Nov. 1.

If you're thinking about nibbling a cannabis edible before getting frisky, you might want to think again. Marijuana edibles are great for a lot of things. They're inconspicuous, they don't leave a whiff of marijuana's tell-tale smell behind, and they can be made into just about any snack you like.
