|HALF MOON BAY, CA (IWR Satire) --
Saddam Hussein of Medford, OR watches a forklift put his winning
1,860-pound pumpkin on a scale during the Half Moon Bay Great Pumpkin
Mr. Hussein won a prize of $5,900 for his record
sized pumpkin, beating the old record by seventy pounds.
Gordon Gourde, the Great Pumpkin Weigh-Off president, had this to
say: "He told everybody his name was
Sammy Hussein. I thought he looked familiar, but he sure as hell
had the biggest friggin' pumpkin at our event!"
