Good name for a band in my opinion. 😏
I once started a game whereby we would place the word "pumpkin" into already existing band names (because of Smashing Pumpkins) and try to get the biggest laughs. I mean once you start riffing on "Led Pumpkin" "The Mighty Mighty Pumpkin Tones" "Bob Pumpkin and the Wailers" "Tom Petty and the Pumpkin-breakers"...well, you can see how silly it could be.😛
This went on in fits and spurts for a while, and each time we thought we'd found the most perfect, funniest one, somebody would top it. Until one day in the car with my friend Adam when, during a quiet moment apropos of nothing in particular, he looked at me quite seriously from the drivers seat and locked eyes with me. "N. W. P." he said, and for about two seconds whilst it dawned on me exactly what he was saying there was silence and then suddenly we were both screaming with laughter. It was literally the funniest moment I had ever shared with someone over something so patently silly yet incredibly witty. Three little letters that caused us to pull over and laugh until we choked; full on belly laughs until tears ran down our faces with minor laugh-eruptions for many minutes thereafter. It goes down in my personal history as an epic moment.😂😂
The game ended that day; I mean why not, right? But what a perfect end to an absolutely ridiculous game and one that makes me think back with so much affection to the times I spent with the awesome people who played along with me.
