"Pumkin" is a series of crudely animated videos and games from the website "pumkin.com" that are meant to teach young children how to speak English. They must not be doing a very good job of it, considering the name of their website is "pumpkin" spelled incorrectly.
The most famous of these videos/games is the "food game." In this game, a talking pumpkin (Hungry Pumkin) with limbs walks into your restaurant and demands food. When you give him what he wants, he eats it whole. He doesn't really care he gets a thousand cuts and burns in his mouth from chewing glass and sucking hot coffee, he'll ram the whole thing in his mouth and demand more. And if you don't give him what he wants, he'll be sure to let you know by yelling "NO! I DON'T WANT THAT!" whilst violently slapping the item off of the counter. He'll respond in 4 ways when he's finished: "That was terrible! I'm never coming back here!" "Y'know, that wasn't too bad" "That was deeelicous! I'll be back tomorrow!" "That was fantastic! I'll be back in ten minutes!"
The use of it began when wikiwow uploaded a video using the Food Game called "The Hunger Games" in April of 2012. The video itself wasn't a YouTube Poop, but it sparked interest in the source within the YTP community. Since then, the use of the Food Game and other pumkin.com sources have become very popular. The restaurant in the "Food Game" was also used in DaThings1's "24601 releases a sammich on parole", where Javier asks for a "sammich" and violently slaps a box of Dunkin' Donuts off the counter in the same way as the Hungry Pumkin.
