Fun with Squash

We haven't yet had a frost, which means we still have some vegetables growing in our garden, including a dense zucchini plant. Believe it or not, that plant managed to hide one of the squash under its leaves until it was almost the size of a baseball bat.

By the time we picked it, it was far too woody to eat. But before I consigned it to the compost pile, I had a thought. It's almost Halloween. I've read that the original jack-o-lanterns were carved from turnips. So why not a zucchini?

What do you think? Scary enough for the trick-or-treaters? 
Maybe we should hand out zucchini on Halloween  instead of candy. Nah, that would be too scary.
