Jack-B-Lanternon October 1, 2014 at 9:09 am
I’ve done it, you’ve done it – at some point, I think we all joked about how Beeserker’s head looks like a Jack-O-Lantern. Therein lies the premise for the contest I’m hold this month. A pumpkin carving contest! The First Annual Beeserker Pumpkin Carving Grand Championship!
The rules are simple – make a pumpkin (or pumpkins) look like a Beeserker character (or characters), take a picture, and send it to me. As long as the photo involves pumpkins and this comic, you’re in the game. Contrary to the name of the contest, I don’t even care if you paint the pumpkins or use lesser gourds (although points will likely be deducted). The only thing I ask is that you don’t endanger yourself or others while taking said picture. That means no filling a pumpkin with actual bees or making an Ursinerator Jack-O-Lantern fueled by an entire bottle of lighter fluid. Please.
Prizes will be awarded to my three favorite entrants. The second and third place winners will each receive a set of appropriately spooky Bootsie pins and a 4″ x 5″ doodle of a Beeserker character of their choice. The first place winner will receive a set of all six Beeserker pins, the aforementioned character doodle, AND this one of a kind Winner’s Coaster…
While your winning pumpkin will quickly rot away or be destroyed by Billy Corgan and his gang of ne’er-do-wells, this wooden coaster will be long-lasting proof of both your skill and my pride for you. Also, you can set drinks on it. Send entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 2nd, 2014 (I’m giving you a couple of days, should you want to put the pumpkins out on Halloween night).
Have fun, and try not to cut your fingers off!

I’m not even entering the contest, but no promises.
Now, I’m not saying I’m going to do it… but I’m suddenly filled with a passion for a Beeserker in full Triple-tanna regalia, arms Kamehameha’ing forward with a strategically placed candle for cool pumpkin glow effects and hidden friend with well-timed aerosol hairspray can spray action behind. It could even be a two-parter, with an opposing, perforated Beething pumpkin getting fireblasted.
Part of me wants to not post this, keep the idea to myself, and submit it, flying against all the rules like a rebel without a cause. The other part of me knows I lack the ambition for such a lofty pumpkin photo-op. That same part of me actually just knows that that kind of hair spray would be too expensive for something nobody in the house would use save for pumpkincineration, and that I’m not actually very good at pumpkin carving.
Just use spray-paint, dude, it works wonderfully.
