Yeah, given that jack-o'-lantern carving initially started up with turnips before it moved to pumpkins, I'm going to say there's a pretty strong face-on-fruit human carving impulse. I once tried to carve a jack-o'-lantern turnip to see what it would look like, and I literally ruined a good knife and got nowhere with the turnip. But that ridiculous feat was a real folk tradition, so it seems plausible to me that folks in SU could have evolved the much less ridiculous pumpkin-carving independently. I note also that Steven does not make the traditional gap-toothed Halloween-grin kind of pumpkin; the face he draws looks quite different.
