"If I understand," Giles began, "this contest features competing teams whose objectives are to 'chuck' pumpkins the farthest?"

"Yep." Xander responded cheerfully, "A tradition combining our two greatest loves- pumpkins, and things going splat!"

"Hmm."

"C'mon Giles, give it a chance." Willow pleaded. "Some of them use catapults. They're not flinging rocks, but still, kinda' historical."

"Catapults were used for more than just breaching walls. Incendiary missiles, severed carcasses or-"

"Giles," Buffy interrupted "you're cute when you're all Watchery, but we're trying to get away from gruesomeness."

"It's on!" Willow squealed.

Ten minutes later, "Oddly enough, I'm quite enjoying myself." Giles admitted.
