CARVING a pumpkin at Halloween can be tricky.
And, sometimes, the classic Jack-o’-lantern (think triangular eyes and a wide toothy grin) just doesn’t cut it.
Now, some creative folk have crafted hilariously rude designs out of their bright orange squashes and shared the results online.
One dirty minded carver cut out a stripper design, complete with enormous breasts, while another crafted out a pair of hands so the pumpkin looks like a bum that is being grabbed.
Sex seems to be a common theme amongst cheeky Halloween enthusiasts who want to give their veg an X-rated edge.
Two unicorns can be seen getting frisky on one pumpkin, while another depicts a swarm of sperm making its way to a giant egg.
One laugh-out-loud design sees a female pumpkin giving birth to a baby pumpkin.
Other outrageous carvings include a cannabis leaf and a pumpkin who looks like he’s had too much pulp.
A stream of seeds spew out of the squash’s mouth while an anxious pumpkin pal looks on.
Sinister designs also feature.
One evil-eyed pumpkin looks like it has eaten a child as Babygro-covered legs are positioned at its mouth.

Two demented pumpkins have also gone on a killing spree and are surrounded by split squash and bloodied heads.
Carving your own rude pumpkin can be a doddle this Halloween.
First, choose a large pumpkin and use a sharp serrated knife to cut off the crown.
Then, use a large serving spoon to scoop out the seeds, fibres and some of the flesh. Discard.
Draw your design on the squash with a marker pen and then carefully carve it out. Always cut away from you in case the knife slips.
Pop a tea light inside the pumpkin and replace the crown.
Voila! A spooky and (incredibly inappropriate) pumpkin is yours to marvel at.
