Pumpkin vs. Pontiac: The video
There's no great morality play here, no inspirational message, no good reason to watch other than the fact that it's just really, really cool.
This is what happens when an 1,169-pound pumpkin (this year's state record) is dropped from a 175-foot-high crane onto a Pontiac 6000 which is what happened recently at Pleasant Grove's Hee Haw Farms.
The Tribune's Francisco Kjolseth captured the action on video. If you need a smile on your Monday, look no further.
Kjolseth reports the pumpkin grown by Matt McConkie of Mountain Green reached a speed of 67 mph in its 3.1-second journey to its oblivion.
