Lie Of The Year: Men Are Better At Carving Pumpkins Than Women


Here's an insecurity we weren't aware of: Two-thirds of Americans think they're bad at carving pumpkins. In a new poll, only 1 in 3 people said they're good at it . . . 8% said "very" good, and 24% said "somewhat" good. Everyone else said bad.

Around 1 in 4 people never carve pumpkins, so they don't know if they're good at it. And this is interesting: Men tend to think they're better at it than women, or might just have lower standards. 36% of men and 28% of women said they've got a knack for carving pumpkins.

The poll also asked people what they do with all those pumpkin SEEDS after they've scooped them out. The #1 answer was eat them. "Throw them away" was a close second.
