Yes, the DOE wants to do for All Hallows’ Eve what Michelle Obama did for school lunches. Your tax dollars are going toward creating lame, green energy-themed designs for some unspecified niche demographic to carve into pumpkins.
The department does know how to recycle; it seems they’ve reused the same patterns they posted a couple of years ago, including a CFL bulb, a biomassey-leafy-recycley type symbol, a wind turbine, and a solar energy symbol.
My cat probably could have come up with more inspired designs, and in fact, she provided some assistance as I concocted these non-government-approved patterns, illustrated below. But be warned, these are very scary, and not meant to be contemplated by the faint of brain.
Tastes like Chicken Little.
