It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's a gourdzilla the size of your car, and it's worth $15,500.
Topsfield Fair officials in Massachusetts say Ron Wallace of Greene, R.I., has broken a world record for biggest-ever pumpkin with a 2,009-pound abomination that weighs more than most NFL offensive lines.
The fair posted a video of the competition on Facebook featuring numerous thousand-plus whoppers, a few of which tended to be more yellow than orange.
The weighing session for Wallace's prizewinner featuring a man shouting, "Stay up! Stay up! Stay up! Stay up!" — an apparent reference to a high number on the scale — and then, "Ron Wallace is back!" The man doing the shouting was apparently Ron Wallace: Once the prize was his, he jumped into another man's arms, repeatedly punched his fist into the air and shouted, "Ron Wallace is back, baby! Yeah! Yeah! I'm back baby!"
