“What is a pumpkin’s favorite sport?"/"Squash.”

A pumpkin riddle is:

Q: What is a pumpkin’s favorite sport?
A: Squash.


The joke has been cited in print since at least 2001.


Wikipedia: Squash (sport)
Squash is a racket sport played by two (singles) or four players (doubles) in a four-walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball. The players must alternate in striking the ball with their racket and hit the ball onto the playable surfaces of the four walls of the court.

The game was formerly called squash rackets, a reference to the “squashable” soft ball used in the game (compared with the harder ball used in its sister game rackets).
