Is pumpkin at all related to pumpernickel?
I only ask because I like to call the Babies! by vegetable-based nicknames from time-to-time -- my little artichokes, etc.-- and I tend to use pumpkin more often than not, and I tend to then interchange that with pumpernickel. Which then gets me to thinking, and thinking so hard that I kind of veer over into the other lane of traffic and cut a guy off.
But that might have been because I was plugging in my iPod, too.
