Pumpkin Chunkin’

The popularity of this food-sport reaches far beyond whatever you’re thinking. If the book, "Pie in the Sky: the Authorized History of PunkinChunkin’" isn’t enough to convince you, perhaps 2010’s multi-part show on Discovery’s Science Channel (one of its highest rated shows ever) will drive the point home. People just love (and excel at) building machines that will chuck pumpkins as high and far as possible. This year’s Chunk runs November 4 – 6 and will air on the Science Channel yet again.
