    And can I just say…

    This nonsense about a Pumpkin Shortage is exactly that, total nonsense.
    There are plenty of pumkins.

    Under normal circumstances there would be too many, but as soon as you spread the word that they’re in short supply people who who would never dream of buying one buy two, just in case.
