Trick or Code Violation!
“All was not well Tuesday in the pumpkin patch, where orange vegetable met red tape and nearly got squashed,” begins a Chron article on apparent legal woes that befell the 19th Ave/Sloat Blvd pumpkin patch today. And the pun-filled article only gets better from there kids.
The patch’s proprietors probably don’t look at the situation as lightly, but really, how DO you cover a story about a patch going through a bad, er, patch without using a more jovial tone.
I’ve driven by the patch several times and it looks cute. Chancing life and limb to pull over in the vicinity of that intersection isn’t really my bag, but if I had kids, maybe I would do it.
There aren’t enough pumpkin patches in the world anymore, however. I hope this one and the city can come to an agreement. How much of a “disaster” can one patch be?
