Get Ready to Hurl with Discovery & Science on Thanksgiving

Punkin Chunkin 2011 GetGlue StickerPumpkins become projectiles once again with the return of Punkin Chunkin, the annual special that has become a Thanksgiving tradition on Discovery Channel and Science.

For the unfamiliar, Punkin Chunkin is a yearly extravaganza where teams (and more than 30,000 fans) gather in a Delaware cornfield to see whose homemade contraption can propel a pumpkin the farthest. This year’s event takes viewers behind the firing line, getting up close and personal with the explosive contraptions and personalities that help define “gourd glory.” MythBusters’ Kari Byron, Grant Imahara and Tory Belleci host and take viewers inside the madness to uncover the subculture of these passionate participants.

So enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with your family and friends, and then enjoy your pumpkin pie on Thursday at 8pm ET/PT while the pumpkins fly on Discovery & Science. And don’t forget to check in on GetGlue to earn your Punkin Chunkin 2011 sticker!
