• I suppose it’s better than a partridge, right? Phil and JaNelle Lovely of Greenfield, Iowa discovered what appears to be a pumpkin growing in their pear tree. But it wasn’t technically growing out of the pear tree — turns out a vine from a nearby garden snaked its way up the tree, thereby giving the appearance that the pumpkin had sprouted from something it shouldn’t, which leads to wonder why this story is all over the interwebs right now. I guess the picture of it is neat, should you want to click through on the story. [Yahoo!]
