    Okay, the pumpkin thievery is one of the weirder things I’ve seen recently. Apparently absolutely nothing is safe anymore. It almost seemed like the couple was having to hype themselves up before snatching the gourd; maybe a prank of some sort????

    When you’re basic and need that pumpkin spice fix…But seriously, who does that? Don’t take what’s not yours people.

    I spend a fair amount on holiday decorations and that is pathetic.

    Too bad there wasn’t a big German Shepherd to greet them by the seat of their pants.

    Pumpkin snatching isn’t all that unheard of.  Several years back, I caught a kid in the process of picking one of mine up, when I opened the door, thinking Trick or Treaters were outside.  These likely ended up the victims of a “how far can we throw these” challenge.

    Ah if only the homeowner had been there.  Junior and Juniorette would probably have widdled themselves if confronted suddenly.

    Jim P. If they’re watching themselves here on this video, they are probably doing just that.  If they brazen enough to take pumpkins off people’s porches, then they probably steal packages as well. Hope they get caught.

    Looks like it was a double dog dare
