pumpkin Yellow crookneck squash--can pumpkin pollinate it?

One of my yellow crookneck squashes had a lovely female flower this morning but no male flowers. My pumpkins have loads of male flowers, so I hand-pollinated the squash with a male pumpkin flower. Anyone know if that might work? Googling yields conflicting claims. I guess if it did the seeds from that squash would be a funky hybrid.

Yes, that is my understanding.
What will you get?
You will get a crooked neck yellow squash.
If you save the seeds for next year - well you might get some kind of hybrid.

Hmm...if you succeed and decide to keep the seed and plant it, let us know what it yields.
