Today (10/26) is National Pumpkin Day. In honor of this special day, here are some things that you may not know about the pumpkin.

Pumpkins were once recommended for removing freckles and snakebites. Some Indians used pumpkins as a doormat and they can come in white, blue and green.

Now that we got the pumpkin trivia and knowledge out of the way. It's time for the pumpkin jokes:

What is a pumpkin's favorite sport? Squash.

How do you fix a broken jack-o-lantern? Get a pumpkin patch.

Here's one for the ladies:

Men are like pumpkins. It seems like all the good ones are either taken or they've had everything scraped out of their heads with a spoon.

Finally:

Farmer Beers was driving his tractor with a trailer load of fertilizer. Little Glenn saw the farmer and asked, "What's in your wagon? He replied, "Manure." Little Glenn asked "What are you doing with it?"

Farmer Beers said that he was going to put it on his pumpkins. So I told him that he should come over to our house, because we put ice cream on our pumpkin pie.

Wish I was making that last one up. Happy National Pumpkin Day!
