"Forget everything you ever learned about how to carve a Jack-O-Lantern." This is how outdoorsy YouTube user Hickok45 starts this hilarious video tutorial on how to carve a pumpkin by shooting it. Just don't forget the part where you cut off the top and scoop out the seeds -- he did that in preparation for the lesson (probably also with a gun).
As is tradition, you might have thought the whole "carving the pumpkin" part was what made Jack-O-Lantern making such a hoot, but it's 2010. We have way more exciting and efficient ways of carving our pumpkins now, like with guns! Yeah, you probably shouldn't try this at home.
P.S. This guy also has a YouTube video called "Pumpkin Killing: 10 Methods That Work," so you can rest assured that he knows what he's talking about (and that he really hates pumpkins). (Via Buzzfeed)
