Squash Megalomania

t2013 Mental Health Humor great Pumpkin Jack-O-Lantern megalomania squash by Chato Stewart Cartoon
Jack-O-Lantern: Smallest seedling, am I…Never amount to anything…will I? No great Pumpkin am I? Well, Look at me NOW…TOP of THE World…Ma! Top of the World!!!
Caption: Jack’s megalomania would soon be squash

As Linus van Pelt preps for the  Great Pumpkin, while others are sharpening their knives for Jack-O-Lantern…I can’t help to think that there are power struggles going on among the pumpkin ranks. Don’t forget, they are all linked on a vine and they are all “kin” family of the squash.

That is why in this Mental Health Humor cartoon, I am able to draw out the true nature of Jack; a picked on and not well thought of pumpkin. Jack’s troubles started out as a small blossom on the end of the vine, he was the last to get everything till harvest time when Jack was put on the top of the pile… it did not take long before that power went to his head…megalomania set in fast. You know what also set fast?  Farmer Betty’s pumpkin pie she made with Jack.

P.s. our family van died a month ago we have been stuck in the house all 6 of us for a month I think the above post it’s starting to reflect this… We need to find a family vehicle that we can afford and we can drive with out worries that it might breakdown.
