A squash grown by an Ohio husband-and-wife team captures world record

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with congratulations to Donna and Todd Skinner, who grew a squash that stands about chest high. A photo makes it look like a giant greenish pumpkin. Think of the face you could carve. That squash weighs 2,164 pounds - more than a ton, the same as an old Volkswagen Beetle or the Liberty Bell - and a world record. Our editor Andrea wrote this dad joked - mom joke? - so I must say it. It squashed the competition. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
