Story Summary

Mr. Zeke Calloway couldn't help but brag about his blue ribbon pumpkin, but Mr. Hank Huggins said Zeke's pumpkin wasn't nothin' but a peanut compared to his. Unfortunately Hank's had been planted on the side of a hill and before he could harvest it, it broke loose and caused all sorts of havoc as it rolled down the hill, including picking up Hank's wife on the way.
