    Pumpkin Carving Expert Tom Nardone discusses adding to your puking pumpkin.

    Tom Nardone: Hi! I'm Tom from ExtremePumpkins.

    com. We're working on a puking pumpkin here. It's already began to vomit. But we're not satisfied with just a small amount of vomit, we want to do a additional things to it. So, I'm going to show you four tricks to improve your vomiting pumpkin.

    First is, if your pumpkin did not produce enough vomit in the form of its own guts, you can go the trash bin and pullout guts from other pumpkins you've carved. So, I'll do that. Here we go, even better. See more is always better.

    The next thing you can do is just to stimulate actual Halloween mishaps, you can add like candy to the vomit. In this case, candy corn seems to be appropriate. Add that touch of realism that any kid who vomited on Halloween night knows.

    Third, how about a barf bag, you can make your own. Take a bag, write the word barf bag on it, you got a barf bag, real easy. Finally, no puking person would be complete, and completely humiliated without shameful looks from innocent bystanders.

    So, we got a couple of disgusted little pumpkins, looking on to their big brethren, about how gross he is. So we want to keep this thing and make it last as long as possible. We want to display it on our porch, so that it offends as many people as we can.

    What do you do? Well, I recently studied there are some tried 14 different pumpkin preservatives and I found that bathroom cleaner that had bleach in it works best. I spray it down on all the cut surfaces, on all the goo and seeds and that type of things and on all the pumpkins. It doesn't change the color of the pumpkin or anything like that, so don't fear like the bleach is going to ruin it. It justs keeps every thing away, seems to work on squirrels, mold, and a little bit on the flies.

    So this should get your pumpkin to last about twice as long, as if you had not treated it at all. That's it for our puking pumpkin. Thanks for staying with me and watching how you carve it. My name is Tom from ExtremePumpkins.
