A Tale of Bad Pumpkins, Retold

Or, Something's Rotten in the Pumpkin Patch...

Once upon a time, there was a pumpkin patch.
The pumpkins were foolish, and allowed a very bad ruler to come to power:

Pumpkin Ruler

The Pumpkin Ruler was self-indulgent, crude, and not very bright:

Pumpkin Butt

He kept company with some other nasty pumpkins:

Pumpkin GOP Congress

Together, they did some very bad things:

Pumpkin Torture

The other pumkins weren't too worried, though, because they were satisifed being consumers:

One day, however, the pumpkins learned that one of the Pumpkin Ruler's friends was not very nice to the little pumpkins:

Pumpkin Foley

This made the other pumpkins feel bad:

Then, they learned that it was not an isolated event:

The Pumpkin Ruler started to give the other pumpkins a very bad feeling inside. They finally realized that they needed to purge themselves of the Pumpkin Ruler:

So they rid themselves of the Rotten Pumpkin, and there was Peace in the pumpkin patch.
