Still no pre-scooped pumpkins

Well, another October has rolled around, and still necessity has not become the mother of invention when it comes to jack o'lanterns.

I like carving pumpkins, but I absolutely abhor scooping out the cold, slimy pumpkin seeds and attached pumpkin guts.

I would like to be able to go to the store and buy a pre-scooped pumpkin. I know, the minute you scoop them out they start to decay, but I'm sure there's some kind of unnatural preservative they could use so the pumpkin retains its cuttability but doesn't start morphing into a collapsed moldy mound of goo for a little while anyway.
I'm not too talented when I do carve pumpkins..they pretty much have looked the same since I was allowed to wield a knife. But imagine the creativity that I could muster if I didn't have to blow my wad cleaning the pumpkin of its wad of goo!

Jack-O-Lanterns
try using some rubber gloves but it will still feel gooey but it would keep you from touching the stuff with your bare hands. Just a thought.....

Goop and Guts
As the years have passed, I've gotten more lazy with the guts. First, I cut the bottom of the pumpkin as the hole. That way a whole section comes out with guts attached. Cut those off. Then reach in and just clean a bit off of where you're going to carve the face. There, you're done. Now you carve your face. And when you add candle, you just have to lift the entire pumpkin, the cut section stays on porch. Light candle. Place pumpkin back on section. Done. Ho Ho Ho. Happy Halloween from the U.P.
