Of course, they first threw an incendiary grenade.

were they trying to free the dog, or stone the dog?

Did anyone bother to save the pumpkin?It obviously was being saved since it still was around.Maybe they were saving the pumpkin to put into their big bulge jeans.

The Great Pumpkin lives! Or did, I guess. I hope someone planted the seeds, or at least ate them (roasted pumpkin seeds - yum!)

"Drug-smelling wasps originally detected the fire, quickly alerting neighbors and giving possible options to help dog. Dog says, 'I would have rather died than have those job-stealing wasps help save me!'"

Woo Hoo! I got an article posted!

I wonder why they didn't like my PS pic, though.

I bet since the pumpkin was still outside it was pretty juicy and moist and splatter on impact too... Aw g'yeah....

WTF is up with that poll below the article?

Yeah, no doubt...what's up with that poll?

I can offer a good guess to the question... YES, I think alien technology would have come in real handy... of course it depends on what the technology IS. I mean, if all you've got is a disintegration ray-gun, well.. your options are narrowed down a bit for you. A super-advanced computer able to take over the operation of the planes while in flight would have been pretty spiffy, or some sort of teleportation device.

On the other hand, a super high-tech toothbrush might not have been so useful.
