Pumpkin proposal

Pumpkins are the new roses, you guys. In what is easily the all-time most romantic use of a seasonal gourd, Zach Stoddard of Dayton, Ohio proposed to girlfriend Lauren Brenneman last night with a series of jack-o’-lanterns carved to ask a question: “Will You Marry Me?” We’re seriously impressed (and a little intimidated) by his surgeon-slash-serial killer knife skills.

Brenneman happily accepted. No word yet on whether Stoddard embedded her ring, razor blade-style, in a candy bar.
