Still wondering what you’re going to do other than eat and nap tonight? Watch Punkin’ Chunkin’ on the Science Channel at 8pm!
“It’s one of my favorite holiday traditions” - Trace
Aren’t convinced by my testimonial? I’m not surprised. Watch a video or two (http://ow.ly/fucGV) about how they fling, throw and blast pumpkins as far as possible with these homemade rigs. How can you not get excited about that?
NOTE: the real excitement hits about 2/3 of the way through!
I took this yesterday at Punkin’ Chukin’! Tune in on the Science Channel on Thanksgiving night at 8pm. Even Perez Hilton knows it’s not Thanksgiving without the Chunk.
This machine is crazy big and crazy fast, and if you look closely you can see Kari Byron!
it’s so fast… as is speeds up you can hear it slicing through the air… also there are people in that truck! look at the smoke! holy cow!
The centrifugals are my favorite division. Seriously, huge steel arms hundreds of feet long have a single pumpkin strapped to one end. As they begin to spin, slowly at first and then faster and faster the sound becomes a whistle and the ground shakes.
When the arm is flailing and the smoke pours from the exhaust we hear the official air horn and “Bad to the Bone’s” operator pulls the trigger, sending the pumpkin soaring downrange. How can you not get excited about these crazy contraptions!
