Can someone help me identify?

In very early July I planted 4 pumpkin plants and 2 spaghetti squash plants. The patch got totally intertwined and then more or less devastated by vine borers and then powdery mildew. But alas I have two fruit growing, on separate plants, that I *think* were from my spaghetti squash plants but are dark, dark green, and not really rounded in quite the same way as spaghetti squash. They also don't really resemble pumpkins. (Sadly, they are also missing a couple chunks thanks to my local squirrel population!)

Anyone have any ideas? Weird hybrid?

Pumpkins. Just keep them watered and keep the critters off them if possible. They should make you something.

Cool, thanks. Their shape is weird, but a weird pumpkin is still a pumpkin!
