You can file this straight into the "This is why we can't have nice things" category.

Someone had set up a festive fall display outside of the Flexit Cafe & Bakery on Main Street in Ellsworth, complete with hay bales and big, orange pumpkins. We're sure such an adorable little scene brightened up their little corner of the world, and brought joy to passers by who looked upon the scene.

We're not sure that same sentiment can be felt now, as that little Halloween Scene has turned obscene, thanks to some questionably carved creations.

An unknown assailant, armed with a carving tool, well, carved some tools into those sweet pumpkins. Based on the Kindergarten level of skill, and scale, it's likely this was the work of a person not fully matured yet. It's obvious this individual lacked in the proper guidance and education, or else they would have known not to style a squash that was no their own.

Now, as you can see, based on the post put up on the Downtown Ellsworth, ME Facebook page, feelings about the incident vary from outrage to amusement. But I think all those who left comments agree that the perpetrator in this matter should have heeded the old adage "If it's not yours, don't touch it" or in this case they should have had some respect for O.P.P--"other people's pumpkins."
