Worst. Metaphor. Ever.

Are you feeling a little bit hollow on the inside?
Has your materialistic lifestyle left you gutted, as well as damp and sticky?
Have you lost your metaphorical seeds?

Cue this AP story:
"Although Halloween has become increasingly popular across Europe — complete with carved pumpkins, witches on broomsticks, makeshift houses of horror and costumed children rushing door to door for candy — it's begun to breed a backlash. Critics see it as the epitome of crass, U.S.-style commercialism. Halloween "undermines our cultural identity," complained the Rev. Giordano Frosini, a Roman Catholic theologian who serves as vicar-general in the Diocese of Pistoia near Florence, Italy.
Frosini denounced the holiday as a "manifestation of neo-paganism" and an expression of American cultural supremacy. "Pumpkins show their emptiness," he said."

Pumpkins show us our emptiness.
Now it all makes sense.
