This pumpkin represents Illinois’ bloated bureaucracy in Illinois. Let’s roll up our sleeves and rip the guts out of this bureaucracy, then we can carve a happy face on it & put a candle in it. That’s what the people want, trust me!

This is an “Illinois Government” pumpkin…way too big for its purpose, a tremendous burden to support, and it gets rotten very shortly after it’s put in service… The only way to make it useful is to take its guts out, cut out a lot of it, and put a fire in its belly…

“Jay, if it wasn’t for Madigan, these things would be TWICE as big.”

The other 99% of the pumpkins are little pumpkins but this is a big pumpkin and it is going home with me to be with its own kind. I will name it Percival and we will drink wine together while laughing at photos of old people shivering in the cold.
My cousin Mose Schrute and I grew this pumpkin. We have named it Michael. Very shortly we are going to carve it up and serve it to you know who at our November 18 meeting. We’ll see if old pumpkin head likes that part of my turn around agenda.
