Punkin Chunkin

     The (unofficial) results are in from the 2010 Punkin Chunkin contest in Bridgeville, Del. Pumpkins were flying everywhere over the weekend, powered by trebuchets, cannons and sheer human force.

    We’re most impressed with the Youth 10 & Under category. The first place Punkin Seeds threw 795.64, 684,47 and 585.87. The official World Punkin Championship Punkin Chunkin website has all the results.
