Bodacious Pumpkins!

Everyone has heard of the Great Pumpkin, but have you heard of a Bodacious Pumpkin? For the first time in my many wonderful years of being the cartoonist for the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip, I had two fans send me photos of Snuffy Smith pumpkins they created for this Halloween season.  I hope you enjoy them!  I think they are both amazing!
