Happy Halloween. For Halloween I went in the spirit of Dr. Frankenstein and decided to create a freak of nature. I made an apple-pumpkin pie (or pumpkin-apple pie, depending on whether or not you consider this to be an apple pie with pumpkin, or pumpkin pie with apples.) Well here it is, I divided by zero twice, blew open a few worm-holes and created a mutated unholy holiday love child.
