There comes a time in every pumpkin carving where someone inevitably thinks they can fit their head in a pumpkin. This unfortunate teenager demonstrates why you shouldn’t. 

The whole ordeal plays out like an ABC family sitcom: There’s the Home Improvement husband who wants to call the fire department, the annoying little brother who won’t stop inexplicably singing “I can carve a belly button in my pumpkin,” and the exhausted mom who seems ready for a third glass of wine. 

“This is how we roll. Total crazy. Total chaos. 24/7,” the mom says. Frankly, I don’t know how she does it with five kids. I’m exhausted just watching this.  

For what it’s worth, the girl did finally get her head out—but her brother makes it clear there wasn’t a lesson learned.
