You start to feel sorry for abusing the guard so badly, and mumble an apology.
But then a mere apology doesn't seem to do justice to the poor man. You decide he needs a proper funeral. You sever his head with your trusty pocket knife.
And place the head in the pumpkin, which you just hollowed out.
Using your handy spoon, you dig a hole and bury the pumpkin.
You say a few prayers. He's in a better place now.
