Carving a Pumpkin in a Pumpkin

How can you make your Jack-o’-lantern creepier? Well, if you do what Bobby Duke did, you’ll buy a white pumpkin to make a skull inside an orange pumpkin.

Most Powerful Hammer

You can run down to the Home Depot and pick up a tool that uses gunpowder or compressed air to drive nails.

Looks like the Adulting Party Game’s creators get a kick out of Wink’s For Days’ Adulting Merit Badges like we do, ‘cause they’ve turned the idea into a silly charades game. Players randomly pick an adulting task badge and act it out using props, noises, whatever. A fun way to delay actual chores.
