I REALLY enjoyed this one. What a hoot! Your little story flows along smoothly all the way to the hilarious end. The parts about having dessert are especially creative.

I think this is a good entry for the Halloween Flash Fiction contest.
Your short fantasy story about the pumpkin people is well told.
Well done and good luck to you with the contest.
Sharon

LOL! I lovvve it. Sorry I'm out of sixes, for it deserves one. I like the tie-in with Charlie Brown kids and their Great Pumpkin.

You need paragraphs where shown below:

treaters' faces. [new paragraph] They are known for kidnapping other people's wives and locking them up in a pumpkin shell, where they are kept very well with no chance for escape! [new paragraph] The head of the Pumpkin People, Peter

    Thanks for the great review! It was one of those things where you get an idea and it just writes itself.
    Thanks also for the suggestion of where paragraphs etc. need fixing. I've gone in three times now to edit things when I save it and go back it's back to the way it was! must be an edit pirate or something

Ha! This is not a test! I did wonder why anyone would approach these critters... unless with murder-by-candle-blowing in mind? Thanks for brightening my day with this most peculiar flash!

Dear Patty, Laughable, funny, and joyful is the Attack of the Pumpkin People! I can just hear the emergency alert on the TV, and it has a "sweet" ending when you make them into a tasty dessert! Donna Good luck in the contest.

A well-written, if highly unusual take on the dreadful time of Halloween. As flash fiction, delving too deeply into academic dissection would cause the reader to lose the enjoyment of a good story. As I looked back at the pumpkins resting in a box in the supermarket earlier today, I could easily imagine them sneaking out after dark to join their terrorist colleagues on the streets of the town and, passing the fire station, could imagine how many ambulances would be called into service after nightfall. Certainly the author's vivid imagination is infectious. Well done!

So, so, so funny and clever. I love the satire and chuckled all the way through your posting. Pumpkin People are obviously a great threat to those who are craving seasonal pies and, working together, I am positive that we can turn the tables to our delicious advantage. (Thank you for sharing this delightful posting, Patty!) :-)
