“Never date Jack-O-Lantern. He’s hollow inside”

A jack-o’-lantern is a carved pumpkin; the insides of the pumpkin are removed. A joke was posted on Facebook by Indian Hills Community Sign on October 29, 2020:

“Never date Jack-O-Lantern. He’s hollow inside.”


Wikipedia: Jack-o’-lantern
A jack-o’-lantern (or jack o’lantern) is a carved pumpkin, turnip, or other root vegetable lantern associated with Halloween. Its name comes from the phenomenon of a strange light flickering over peat bogs, called will-o’-the-wisp or jack-o’-lantern. The name is also tied to the Irish legend of Stingy Jack, a drunkard who bargains with Satan and is doomed to roam the Earth with only a hollowed turnip to light his way.
