It’s the Great Pumpkin

The jack-o’-lantern was 25 feet tall. Even being inflatable, it was 350 pounds. If that didn’t make it a Great Pumpkin, it was at least a Big AZ pumpkin. The pumpkin was set up to promote a Halloween event, but it got loose, rolled across a Phoenix, Ariz., highway (in traffic), got stuck under a streetlight for a while, got loose again, and generally led Big AZ Productions, which owns it, on a chase. No one was hurt except the pumpkin... and some streetlights. (AC/KPNX Phoenix) ...Halloween is better in the dark anyway.
