Picture of Puking Pumpkin
Tired of those same old pumpkin carvings year after year? Try something new this Halloween with the puking pumpkin!  It's simple, only takes a few minutes to pull off, and is just as fun and entertaining for kids as it is for adults. 

The phobia name for the fear of puking is emetophobia.  You know you've found a good pumpkin carving theme when it has its own official medical terminology and self help website - http://fearofvomiting.com/!

If one puking pumpkin isn't enough for you, check out Schooniedude's How to Make an Awesome Pumpkin Instructable.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
Making your own puking pumpkin really isn't any different from carving any other type of pumpkin.  All you need is:
  • a pumpkin or two
  • a permanent marker
  • various sharp small knives (I'm using a Stanley utility hack saw in some of the photos)
  • a spoon
  • a bowl

I love it!! My daughter is carving her own puking pumpkin right now. Even out here in the sticks we r going to show Halloween fun!
XD i did a similar thing with tangerines XD

Great 'ible, 5 stars.

 What's the shelf life of that thang after you pop open the top? Does it need to be refrigerated after opening?

We had a composting mess one year when it was still really humid in the house and the jack-o-lantern never really dried out.
The shelf life would probably depend on what the relative humidity was.  It would probably last longer in New Orleans than it would in Tucson.  I just wouldn't want that to be sitting in the bathroom toilet, though.  If someone was already feeling woozy, that could push them over the edge.

 The same idea was in a newspaper comic strip. In Foxtrot, Jason carves a puking pumpkin to protest his moms healthy treats for trick or treaters.
I did something similar to this one year.

I like it's face :P
The picture in step 3 reminds me of biology class today... But it was a deer instead of a pumpkin... 
Ummmm...sad to say, you were not the first (by 5 whole days).

Oh well, your prize is a smile and a handshake, thanks for playing our game...
This idea has been around for years, or did you mean the first on Instructables?

I meant the first on Instructables, but I totally missed that boat too!  Sorry for my false claims...I'll update the Instructable appropriately now.
 As Alex Trebek would say, "Sorry." What is, You might need this www.instructables.com/id/Making-a-Time-Machine/ ?
