For those who love Halloween, falling leaves, and pumpkin spice lattes, September is the perfect time to start getting into the fall spirit, but one man learned the hard way that you shouldn’t try to get between people and their pumpkins.
Jason Hruby took to Twitter at the start of the month to casually state that he is already sick of the fall fanfare, writing: ‘It’s barely September.. chill out with the [jack-o’-lantern] emoji.’
However, if Jason was looking for some solidarity in the Twittersphere, he was sadly mistaken; his tweet only ended up inspiring people to flood his feed with even more pumpkin emoji.
Wrong move: Jason Hruby asked people to ‘chill out with the [jack-o’-lantern] emoji’ at the start of the month
Hell hath no fury… The tweet only inspired people to flood his Twitter feed with pumpkin emoji
Creative: Some people used the emoji to spell out phrases, including ‘F**k You’ and ‘Grow Up’
Got the point across: A woman named Victoria simply wrote ‘No’ in response to Jason’s tweet
A Twitter user named Marika responded to his tweet with 140 pumpkin emoji, and she wasn’t the only one who felt compelled to inundate him with the very thing he was trying to avoid.
Some saw Jason’s message as the perfect moment to tap into their creativity, and one particularly cheeky Twitter user known as Riley C. Ghost used jack-o’-lantern emoji to spell out ‘F***k You’.
A man name Matt opted to do the same thing, only he wrote: ‘Grow Up.’ And a woman named Victoria responded by using the pumpkin emoji to spell out ‘No’.
Other people kept Jason’s wishes, and instead they shared clips of the dancing pumpkin man. But the sentiment remained the same.
Hitting back: ETwitter user Wizard Bird told Jason it was ‘spooky time’ while using plenty of pumpkin emoji
Equally effective: Other people shared clips of the dancing pumpkin man, but the sentiment remained the same.
Skills: A Twitter user named Kenzie created a middle finger using jack-o’-lantern emoji
People also had some compelling arguments as to why they should start being able to celebrate Halloween a month early.
‘Hi, September is pumpkin harvest month for a lot of varieties; I just did mine!’ Twitter user Kendersrule explained.
Then there were those who pointed out that people spend months celebrating Christmas.
‘If Santa can keep poking his a** into October the we can all deal with jack-o’-lanterns in September, Magnus Deacon wrote.
Simple explanation: One person noted that September is actually pumpkin harvest month
Fair is fair: Plenty of people argued that people start celebrating Christmas months before December
He’s on to something: A man named Andy said he can ‘spam pumpkins’ whenever he wants because of how early people start getting ready for Christmas
Tit for tat: Amber Skye brought up the fact that some people leave their Christmas lights up all year round
How about this? Paul Burley was just one person who bypassed the pumpkin emoji all together and opted to send 140 Santa emoji his way instead
‘Tesco literally started preparing for Christmas after Easter. I can spam pumpkins wherever I want,’ a man named Andy tweeted.
And Amber Skye added: ‘If y’all get to leave the Christmas lights up on your house all year long, I get to break out the skeletons when the temperature drops two degrees.’
Meanwhile, Paul Burley was just one person who bypassed the pumpkin emoji all together and opted to send 140 Santa emoji his way instead.
One can only wonder what Jason finds worse.
