This past weekend in New England, a Connecticut man set a Topsfield Fair record by winning the All New England Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off with a 2,294-pound pumpkin. To put that in perspective, CNN notes that a Mitsubishi Mirage only weighs about 2,018 pounds. Still, Alex Noel's monstrous pumpkin fell short of the 2,624-pound Guinness World Record, which is held by Mathias Willeminjs of Belgium.
