Is it Pumpkin or Jack-O-Lantern?

This has perplexed me for years. It's part of the squash or guord family....and it's orange (well some are white/albino)....but it is called a PUMPKIN or is it called a JACK-O-LANTERN???


Inquiring minds want to know!!!!!!

i think the pumpkin becomes a jack-o-lantern once you carve it up and put a candle inside of it

In deference to those with a Spanish accent, "v" words often sound like "b" words. Like Havana becomes Habana and so forth - it's not considered to be a mistake, just a difference in accent.

Isn't it then officially a "tequila bender" once you've had one tequila too many?

one tequila
two tequila
three tequila
FLOOR!
