Insipid emails

I got this email at work, and I just HAD to react to it!

Here's the original email:
-------------------------
From one pumpkin to another!

A woman was asked by a co-worker, "What is it like to be a Christian?"

The coworker replied, "It is like being a pumpkin." God picks you from the
pumpkin patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. Then He
cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff inside.

He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed. Then He carves you a new
smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the "World"
to see." This was passed on to me by another pumpkin. Now, be a good
pumpkin and pass it on to other pumpkin friends.

I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch. Hope you do
the same!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

My "re-interpretation":
----------------------
A woman was asked by a co-worker, "What is it like to sell your soul to the
Devil?"

The coworker replied, "It is like being a pumpkin." Satan picks you from
the pumpkin patch, stealing you from all your friends and comfortable home,
and removes any traces of the warm and natural earth. Then He cuts you open
and takes from you that which is most valuable - your "meat" (which can be
used to bake pies) and your seeds (which symbolize your future). Sure, he
also carves a smile, but if you look closely, it's really just a grotesque,
unnatural grin that masks the true reality: you are just an empty shell of
the person you once were!

Don't let Satan pick YOU! Warn all your friends as quickly as possible!
